Charlotte Hornets watch Terry Rozier has consented to a four-year, $97 million expansion that will keep him in Charlotte through the 2025-26 season.
The Hornets initially added Rozier in the late spring of 2019, landing him through a sign-and-economic accord with the Boston Celtics that moved establishment symbol, Kemba Walker, to Boston.
Regardless of numerous the exchange being intensely scrutinized as the Celtics removed considerably more, it currently appears to be the Hornets might have left good as they keep on having a delivering watch while Kemba was exchanged from the Celtics to the Thunder in June and has recently finished paperwork for the Knicks.

Be that as it may, it appears like Charlotte might have taken the right action as Rozier appears to be a strong player on safeguard and offense and should keep on delivering.
The Hornets are attempting to assemble their group behind point watch LaMelo Ball, last year’s Kia NBA Rookie of the Year, veteran little forward Gordon Hayward, and gatekeeper Terry Rozier. The group exchanged for focus Mason Plumlee this offseason, marked free specialists Kelly Oubre Jr and Ish Smith, and drafted James Bouknight and Kai Jones in the first round.
Charlotte has not made the end of the season games since the 2015-16 season and hasn’t won a season finisher series in the last 19 seasons so ideally, this triplet alongside new signings can have the effect.
