Anytime MJ steps in on a personnel decision, I get nervous.

Pretty funny but I don't think that is exactly fair. Clearly the Suns, Knicks and Hornets were the 3 most PG needy teams in the NBA after the draft/early FA period. I am actually glad that the other teams who at least in part sucked because of not having a PG were trying to get the seemingly best young FA PG on the market. We "won" out. IDK if he will be a blessing or a curse at that price but at least we have a semi sought after prospect to assess.

Well that's only because when he steps in, whatever decision made is the worst possible one.

I think those teams were interested in taking a 1 year flyer on him. I could understand why he'd be more interested in Suns over the Knicks since Knicks have DSJ and Rozier wanted to be a starter.

Basically, what I'm getting out of all this. We got a guy with limited potential that some teams wanted to give a shot at starting. Our owner and GM offered him a contract and spot no other team could come close to. It's a humongous reach, but worst case scenario is he leads us to some high lottery picks. Best case scenario is he lives up to his contract and we either have a nice trade asset or someone to build around for the future.

In my opinion people are way too harsh on Rozier's contract. Considering Hornet's squad, Rozier will be a top option so his numbers probably are going to be nice, I won't be surprised if he is in the 20/6/6 range. He is very capable in both ends of the floor, the problem last year was that Rozier needs a higher volume of shots to be effective, he isn't meant to be a spot up shooter, which wasnt happening with KI as a starter.
I think this year he will surprise lots of people.

You guys we're less harsh on Miles Plumlee and he had absolutely zero upside, at least we know there is some chance that this guy could be a NBA star. Wait and see

FWIW Scary Terry went 9/9 in a row in a 3vs3.

Hes a solid defender, okay athlete. Hes dribble is meh. If he can get his outside shot to respectable he is well worth his contract. Hes going to average nearly 19 5 and 5 this year. Hes going to make me a lot of $ in draftkings doing that the first 2 weeks of the season as well.

Dribble looks way slow. Could be fatigue, but I think a lot of NBA level defenders would get a hand in there a few times.

Edit: Just looked at a few highlights. His dribble isn't usually that slow. He just changes up the speed depending on who is guarding him from what I saw.

It would've had to have been close. Rough numbers the lowest possible that would work for 3 years would be about $41M, but the highest would be over $64M. Terry had interest from a few teams (Phoenix, NYK) and obviously had to be onboard with a sign-and-trade as well, so we had to make sure we had a competitive offer.

Interesting. thanks.

So even if there were no other suitors and we were the only team interested in Rozier, we were obligated to offer him the contract that we did (the per year at least) because of the contract Kemba agreed to.
Last night I kinda forgot about the MLE angle, in theory we could've offered that for 3 years/$29M. Close to your number, but I'm not sure that gets him. At least we still have that option to use elsewhere.

This got brought up on the tradeboard, so I figured I would reply here as well.

There isn't a reason that Charlotte would have had to offer that contract because of Kemba's deal.

Boston was signing Kemba with cap space; they had already even dumped Baynes at the draft and they knew Horford had a big deal somewhere else (but not where supposedly), so Boston didn't need the sign and trade.
But even if you try and create a hypothetical where Boston would need a sign and trade, Rozier's deal would have left them almost 10m short; it doesn't add up. Boston would have needed to match the full Kemba salary.

BYC *only* applied to Charlotte and not Boston. It set an upper limit on what Charlotte could use as a matching base. Charlotte went ahead and paid to get this base, and then signed Rozier for a starting salary of almost 20m, when they could have signed him for anywhere between the vet min and jus under 22m.

Return to Charlotte Hornets
