The Hornets have tied down their point guard Terry Rozier to at least four more years with a new $97Mn contract. The contract will see him be controlled by the team until the end of the 2025-26 season of the NBA.
Terry Rozier Had A Great Season
Terry Rozier, the former product of Louisville, had only 1 year left on the last contract. In the next offseason, Rozier would have been a free agent without any restrictions. The Charlotte Hornets have instead decided on pinning him down with them for a long term.
Terry Rozier has a central figure according to the organization, and in their plans as well. He is a point guard who can play both with and without holding the ball. As such, Rozier is one of the best fits for LaMelo Ball, the current Rookie of the Year.
Terry Rozier had started his career with the Celtics. After having played 4 seasons for them, he has been with the Hornets for the previous 2. He has featured in 132 games for the team and had been a starter in all of them.
In the previous season, Terry Rozier had career-high averages. The highs came in minutes (34.5), steals (1.3), assists (4.2), and points (20.4) per game. A career-high of 45% shots from the field was made as well. In the future, Rozier will look to build on this momentum that has been established with the Hornets last season.
In an interview, Rozier stated that he was delighted to be a member of the Hornets. Presently, he looks forward to growing with those around him. He had also established himself as a shot-maker for clutch situations as well. He had scored 14 such 3-pointers during last season, which put him at fourth.
