Terry Rozier on the future: "I want to get my chance"


Terry Rozier has talked about his future at the Boston Celtics and expressed doubts about staying there in case the team stays together.

I have to go through a lot this year and I think we all know that I do not want to go through that again," said Rozier on the ESPN show First Take. Similarly, he expressed himself earlier at Get Up.

Before the season, the Celtics were still considered as a top team and as one of the biggest contenders in the Eastern Conference, but they could not retrieve their potential.
