Terry Rozier said he is happy with his lot in life.

Talking to reporters during the shootaround prior to Thursday night's game against the Suns in Phoenix the Celtics guard responded to the report in The Athletic that at least seven teams have shown interest in trading for him, Rozier told reporters, "That's how it should be. It should be more."

The trade rumor was pushed along by Bill Simmons' tweet suggesting that Rozier was unhappy with his playing time through the first 10 games.

When asked about the subject Thursday, both Rozier and Celtics coach Brad Stevens refuted the notion that the guard -- who is averaging 22.7 minutes per game -- is displeased with his current situation.

"I’m just blessed to be putting on this uniform, represent this organization every day. So I have no complaints," Rozier said. (H/T Jay King.)

"He has been nothing but a good teammate since he’s been here. He has said nothing to me (about being unhappy)," added Stevens. (H/T Brian Robb.)
