Terry Rozier is reportedly unhappy with his playing time in Boston.

Rozier is earning 22.6 minutes a night with the Celtics, but he showed last season that he's capable of logging starters minutes, and that simply won't happen in Boston. A plethora of teams have expressed interest in Rozier, but to this point, the Celtics have shown no desire to move him. While he would gain a ton of value in Phoenix or Orlando, it's unclear if either of those teams would be able to put together a package that would be enough to incentive the Celtics to pull the trigger on a deal.

Seven teams have been closely monitoring Terry Rozier, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

So far, the Suns are the only team that has been named as one of Rozier's suitors, and per Shams, they have "aggressively pursued" him. However, the Celtics have expressed no desire to move him, which does make some sense given Kyrie Irving's health concerns. Rozier is in a contract year, and it will be difficult for the Celtics to retain him, but he could also be an important piece in a run to the Finals. As for fantasy hoops, he's really not much more than a handcuff for Irving owners.

The Suns are reportedly interested in Jeff Teague and Tyus Jones.

They're still looking for a starting point guard, and if Goran Dragic is included in part of the Jimmy Butler trade, that would make one of the other Minnesota point guards expendable. Pheonix is willing to be the third team here to help facilitate a deal if they can nab a starting PG, and Sacramento is also willing to get involved if they can sneak a first-rounder. Teague or Jones in Phoenix would be fantasy gold.

Patrick Beverley (knee surgery) will not have any limitations entering training camp.

Beverley will go to camp in Los Angeles, but there's a chance he could be making a move to Phoenix at some point, with rumors heating up about the Suns' interest in him. He's coming off a very serious knee injury but has looked great at recent workouts, and he could be fun to own if he does wind up in Phoenix. Beverley is someone to consider towards the final few rounds on draft day.

The Suns are reportedly not interested in George Hill.

Phoenix needs a starting caliber point guard after trading away Brandon Knight, but they have no interest in acquiring Hill and the $37 million that's owed to him over the next two years. The Suns have put out feelers on Damian Lillard, Kemba Walker and Terry Rozier, but there's been zero traction on that front thus far.

Jaren Jackson Jr. went through a workout with the Suns on Sunday.

"One of the more underrated players in this draft in my opinion. Really shot the ball well in this workout," said Suns' GM Ryan McDonough. "He was really really impressive today." Most reporting suggests that the Suns will be going with Deandre Ayton with the No. 1 overall pick, and McDonough acknowledged on Sunday that it's unlikely Phoenix will trade down. Jackson Jr. is an impressive athlete with a nice shooting touch for a big, and he's projected to go within the top-3 on draft day.

Aaron Holiday had his second workout with the Suns on Thursday.

With the Suns almost certainly taking DeAndre Ayton at No. 1, general manager Ryan McDonough has hinted the Suns will likely look for help at guard at No. 16. Holiday is a defense-first point guard, which the Suns desperately need after ranking dead last in defense last season and in the bottom five in each of the last three. Holiday could possibly compete with Tyler Ulis for the starting job.

The Suns are reportedly prepared to offer Clint Capela "a max or near-max contract" once free agency begins this offseason.

Capela will be a restricted free agent this offseason, and Houston will most likely be matching any offer he receives on the open market, as owner Tilman Fertita has already said he's more than willing to go into the luxury tax to keep Chris Paul, Trevor Ariza, James Harden and Capela together. Capela has been lighting it up through the playoffs thus far with averages of 14.4 points, 12.2 rebounds and 2.8 swats per contest, so he'll assuredly be getting paid this summer.

The Suns have reportedly spoken with Jason Kidd and Vinny Del Negro regarding their open head coaching position.

The Suns are still in the early stages of their coaching search, and there are sure to be more names added to the list. Kidd has been an unfavorable coach in terms of fantasy hoops in the past with his wonky rotations, so the Rotoworld staff would be pleased if he didn't land this particular gig.
Apr 23 - 4:31 PM

The Suns reportedly plan to sign Isaiah Canaan under the injury hardship exception.

Canaan would help provide some depth at the guard spots with Phoenix so banged up, but it's unlikely he'd have much value in 12-team leagues, particularly with how inconsistent Jay Triano has been with the rotations.

The Bulls are reportedly "still intrigued" by Jahlil Okafor's talent, but are hesitant to "give up anything of significance" to acquire him.

According to Bulls writer Carlos Douglas Jr., the team "might just wait until the summer of 2018 to pursue him" in free agency. The Suns were also linked to Okafor in early November, but first they'd need to buy out or trade Greg Monroe. Atlanta and New York have also been rumored as possible landing spots, but there's no clear traction in any of these scenarios.
