Derrick White: “It Would Be Cool To Get An Extension”

Derrick White has only been with the Boston Celtics for a year and a half, but he’s ready to be here for the foreseeable future and grow their “relationship”.

“I love being here in Boston. It would be cool to get an extension,” White said. “We’ll see what happens during that window, but I’ve loved my time in Boston so far and my focus right now is just on the season.”

With Marcus Smart gone, White is expected to get a larger role with the team. So much so that he wants an extension, which would be great for both sides.

His on-ball presence will be increased as White could be their primary point guard.

“I’m looking forward to it,” White said about the change in his role. “I’ll definitely have the ball in my hands, more of a playmaker role, and I’m looking forward to grow with the team and just get us in the right position each and every time.”

The 29-year-old played all 82 games last season averaging 12.4 points and 3.9 assists per game.
