Former Louisville guard Terry Rozier is getting paid. Rozier played at UofL for two seasons before being drafted in the 2015 NBA Draft 16th overall by the Boston Celtics. After a few years in Boston, Rozier was traded to the Charlotte Hornets. It is here he has begun to truly thrive and where he has secured his bag.
Charlotte Hornets guard Terry Rozier has agreed to a four-year, $97 million max contract extension, his agent Aaron Turner of @VerusTeam told @TheAthletic @Stadium. The guaranteed deal takes Rozier through the 2025-26 season.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) August 19, 2021
The Athletic’s and Stadium’s Shams Charania is reporting Rozier has signed a max contract with the Hornets for 4 years and $97 million. That will keep Rozier in a Hornet uniform until the 2025-2026 season.
This past season was Rozier’s best as a pro. He averaged 20.4 ppg, 4.4 rpg, 4.2 apg, and 1.3 spg. Rozier shot 45-percent from the field, 38.9-percent from the arc, and 81.7-percent from the foul line. His shooting from the field and the arc have improved dramatically in his two seasons in Charlotte. Rozier had three 40-point games for the Hornets, shattering his previous career highs in points.
Terry Rozier has become a very good NBA guard that can do a variety of things on the floor to help his team win. He can be a big time scorer and playmaker offensively and be a big rebounder and steals guy defensively. Charlotte gave Scary Terry a nice contract commiserate with the value he has brought the team.
Congrats to Cardinal Forever Terry Rozier. He earned every penny.
