Why for the Hornets:
Clears logjam at guard position and also gives them a promising center. Look at how balanced that starting 5 for the Hornets. You get 4 guys who can score with a modern Big who can do the dirty works on defense. Then have Bouknight do damage as your 6th man.
Why for the Sixers:
Issue with Tobi is his lack of reliability to jack up 3s. PJ washington gives you a 3&D PF. While you get higher quality pts generating player in Rozier than Tobi with his reliability to jack up 3s and get you 20pts.
Elephant in the room:
Rozier wants to be paid. Rozier can be what Jrue was for the Bucks, whereas if Rozier proves to be the difference maker for the Sixers he can get paid like Jrue.
At worst, Sixers gets PJ Washington who can be a long term player as a 3&D PF while getting Tobiâ€™s salary off the books. Then sixers can just draft themselves another maxey with a first round pick to replace Rozier.
You also can possibly S&T Rozier and attach him with picks in the offseason for a bigger deal.
Terry was paid. He signed a 4 year max contractthis past week.
