The New York Knicks and point guard Terry Rozier share a mutual interest as free agency approaches, according to Marc Berman of the New York Post.
Rozier is a restricted free agent with the Boston Celtics, meaning the Celtics can match any offer from a rival team. Per Berman, the Knicks and Rozier are interested in a short-term contract.
He told reporters in May, “I might have to go” if the Celtics stayed intact.
Rozier, 25, led the Celtics to the Eastern Conference Finals in 2018 in the absence of injured starter Kyrie Irving. Rozier moved back to a bench role this season and the Celtics failed to equal their success from a season before.
Meanwhile, the Knicks are hopeful to land higher-profile free agents with Kevin Durant and Irving supposedly at the top of their list. But they keeping their options open for other veterans in the event no big names come.
Rozier averaged 9.0 points and 3.9 rebounds in 79 regular-season games.
NBA free agency starts Sunday.
