Jerryd Bayless has enjoyed his time with the Boston Celtics, who acquired him in a deal with the Memphis Grizzlies before the trade deadline.

Bayless will be a free agent at season's end but is prioritizing a return to the Celtics.

"I would be happy about that," Bayless said. "That would be great. One of the things I said when I got here is I want to find a home somewhere. I’d be very happy staying here."

Bayless left a possible playoff team to join the Celtics. He is averaging 9.6 points and 3.4 assists with Boston.

"I don’t think it’s hard. It’s frustrating, but I don’t think it’s hard," Bayless said of the Celtics' losing. "The coaching staff and organization do a great job of keeping us focused."
