Report: Celtics renounce rights to Terry Rozier, making him an unrestricted free agent


With Kemba Walker reportedly on the way, the Celtics appear set to part ways with Terry Rozier.

After extending a qualifying offer to Rozier earlier on Saturday, the C's renounced their rights to the guard to make him an unrestricted free agent, per Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

This opens up a max slot for Walker, who's expected to sign a four-year, $141 million deal with Boston once NBA free agency begins Sunday at 6:00 p.m.

As for Rozier, the 25-year-old and the Knicks reportedly have mutual interest in a short-term contract.

Following an encouraging 2017-18 campaign, Rozier took a step back in a bench role last season averaging nine points per game.
