Terry Rozier On The Chicago Bulls Radar

Boston Celtics guard, Terry Rozier, wants out of Boston. Terry made some controversial comments on ESPN’s First Take and let’s just say, it’s not a good look.

Boston Celtics guard, Terry Rozier, wants out of Boston. Terry made some controversial comments on ESPN’s First Take and let’s just say, it’s not a good look.

Now, let’s hope this is a rumor and nothing else. The Chicago Bulls do need help at the Point Guard position, but with all this hoopla Terry has caused, it doesn’t seem he’d be a great addition to a young core. Calling out teammates and his Head Coach, Brad Stevens, on national television doesn’t scream great locker room presence.

Terry enters Restricted Free Agency this offseason so the Boston Celtics can match whatever is offered to him. The question is, will they?

The Chicago Bulls do not need to offer him a high paying contract. Terry has simply not played his way into one thus far in his career. As previously mentioned, the Bulls young core does not need someone who has a “me first” mentality.

Now, I’m not saying that it would be a terrible pickup. Considering “Scary Terry” made quite a name for himself in last years NBA playoffs, but it’s just the drama that comes with him that’s intimidating.

With the Bulls having the 7th pick in the upcoming NBA Draft, I think it’s important they look at all options. Coby White and Darius Garland are likely the Point Guards in the Bulls reach. If anything the Bulls can look at veteran PG’s in Free Agency as well. Patrick Beverly and Derrick Rose are two that comes to mind.

With all the headlines Terry has been in the last few days, this doesn’t seem like a GarPax move. They tend to stay away from “me first” type of guys and seem motivated to keep building organically.
