Kyrie Irving, Terry Rozier talk like they may leave Celtics

Terry Rozier

The Boston Celtics are expected to undergo serious changes over the offseason and frankly, could use them. Major changes could include the departures of Kyrie Irving and Terry Rozier.

After the Celtics lost in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Wednesday to the Milwaukee Bucks to end their season, some of Boston’s players were asked about their future.

Irving, who could become one of the most prominent free agents, talked about “moving on to the next thing,” indicating he could play elsewhere.

Rozier had a “no comment” about his future, leading the Boston Globe’s Gary Washburn to believe the guard is gone.

Rozier will be a restricted free agent after the season. The Celtics would have the right to match any contract he signs, but he may strongly discourage them from doing so. He emerged in the playoffs last year but struggled to find minutes this year and averaged 9.0 points on 22.7 minutes per game. However, if Irving opts out of his contract to become a free agent and leaves, that might open up minutes for Rozier and change his opinion about a future in Boston.
