Although he steadily got better during his time with the Boston Celtics, Terry Rozier has blossomed into a star since being acquired by the Charlotte Hornets. Over the past two seasons with the Hornets, he’s averaged 19.3 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game while converting on 39.6 percent of his threes.
Still just 27 years old, Rozier is entering his prime and is a piece Charlotte wants to keep around.
With that in mind, The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported on Thursday that Rozier has agreed to a four-year, $97 million max contract extension with the Hornets.
After ranking fifth in 3-pointers made in the NBA last season, Rozier has earned a huge payday, making him one of the highest paid guards in the League.
As the Hornets continue to build a solid team in their pursuit of making a splash in the playoffs this upcoming season, they’re also ensuring they keep their core pieces intact long-term.
