CHARLOTTE, N.C. — With the news that three-time All-Star Kemba Walker is leaving the Hornets after eight seasons, the question quickly shifted to who Charlotte would pursue to replace him.
The Hornets seem to have landed on Boston point guard Terry Rozier. According to multiple reports, Rozier will come to Charlotte in a sign-and-trade deal on a three-year, $58 million contract. Rozier's contract details were first reported by NBA insider Shams Charania.
Last year, Rozier averaged nine points and 2.9 assists per game. He spent the first four seasons of his career with the Celtics. He's expected to be the Hornets' starting point guard ahead of second-year player Devonte' Graham.
