Does Devonte Graham’s emergence and Terry Rozier’s contract prevent the Hornets from drafting a point guard? — @HanginWitCooper. Rick Bonnell: Absolutely not. Kupchak said as long ago as September and as recently as last week that this team isn’t at a stage in development when positions are more important than gathering talent. I believe him when he says if a player is clearly best on their board, but isn’t at a position of need, that Charlotte would draft that player and worry later about how the parts fit together.
But Charlotte Hornets went back to this controversial issue by playing a game with the players of the roster. The video below states “The land is flat” and the athletes gave their opinion on the possibility of the statement being true. With the exception of point guard Terry Rozier, the Hornets’ players denied the flat earth teary, buy Rozier preferred to not get into: “I don’t wanna get into that man” – stated the player who played for the Boston Celtics alongside Kyrie Irving….Had they shared some views on this subject back them?
The Knicks and Charlotte Hornets have discussed a deal involving Julius Randle, league sources confirm. Terry Rozier, Malik Monk and Dennis Smith Jr. are among the names that have come up in discussions between the two franchises, per SNY sources. Rozier was a free agent target for New York over the summer but he ultimately signed a three-year, $58 million deal with Charlotte.
Storyline: Dennis Smith Trade?
Even though he’s posting career-best numbers and is in the midst of establishing individual records, Terry Rozier isn’t about to proclaim he’s arrived. Far from it in fact. “I feel like I ain’t proved shit yet and it’s not to the doubters,” Rozier said. “I give a damn what they say. It’s more to my loved ones, to my family. People that look at me and I really know how much they care about me. Those are the ones that I really want to show what I can do. And like I said, I haven’t showed them nothing yet and I want to keep improving.”

People that look at me and I really know how much they care about me. Those are the ones that I really want to show what I can do. And like I said, I haven’t showed them nothing yet and I want to keep improving.”
Who would you say you are the tightest with on the team? Terry Rozier: I’m cool with everybody. I’ve always been like that. Even last year, like I’m cool with the guy that even is the most non-cultured on the team. I’m cool with Willy (Hernangomez), I’m cool with Malik (Monk). I would probably say those two the most. Billy and ‘Lik. Just their everyday spirit. Malik is kind of different. He’s real chill, funny, will say whatever comes to mind. Willy is annoying, but funny at the same time. He likes to have fun with it, a good guy. So he reminds me a lot of Daniel Theis. a guy I’ve been around and you just see that click.
One could easily make the argument that the Celtics had more talent last season. “Yeah, you could say that. But talent, it can’t always get you to where you want to go,” said Rozier. “You’ve got to have the guys that want to be good, want to play hard, want to learn — stuff like that. Obviously you can have all the talent in the world; if you don’t put it together and everybody don’t buy in, it’s not going to work out. And I think that’s what we got caught up in last year. But this year I’m happy for them. It’s like they pulled it back together.”
Terry Rozier made sure it was going to happen. Before last season had even started and Dwyane Wade’s last dance had ever begun, Rozier voiced his intentions. “I told [Wade], I need that jersey,” the former Boston Celtic, turned Charlotte Hornets guard says nearly a year later. Wade agreed. But once it became clear that the Heat legend was exchanging jerseys with players after nearly every game, Rozier followed-up, reiterating his request. “I’m a fan, I’m doing it for no publicity or nothing like that. I’m really a huge fan,” he texted Wade still weeks before the Celtics played Miami.
The Knicks wound up with Elfrid Payton, whose been out since the season’s fourth game versus Chicago after signing a two-year, $15 million pact. Rozier thought at one point he’d wind up a Knick. “It was probably one of my first options,’’ Rozier said. “I probably was going to make it happen. Other things happened and I ended up going to Charlotte. It was the interest they showed in me, that was big. The organization believed in me, why not.’’
To stay within collective bargaining and salary cap regulations, the Celtics would have had to execute a three-way trade that got Kyrie Irving to Brooklyn, Terry Rozier to Charlotte and Walker to the Celtics. The Nets could get Irving without any help, and no doubt they would have wanted something of value in exchange for doing the Celts a favor. Sources indicated that such talks took place, and while nothing ever got to the point where a final agreement could take place, Brooklyn had a price, and it could have been met.
And while the Rozier signing holds the promise of gambling on someone young just entering his prime, the cost guarantees a level of scrutiny the four-year veteran has rarely experienced. “I’d be lying if I told you there’s no pressure,” Rozier said. “But pressure’s part of the game. Pressure is something that I deal with on a daily basis, but I’m always finding ways to get past it. That’s not easy going in, replacing a guard like Kemba. He’s pretty damn good and the franchise’s leading scorer, like that’s crazy. But it’s something I’ve always wanted. I always live by if the opportunity come knocking, you gotta be ready to answer, and this is the opportunity for me, so I was born ready for this, and I’m not looking back.”
Rozier labeled himself a fan of Irving even before they became teammates. He recommended that a rookie Jaylen Brown enjoy watching Irving play whenever the Celtics played Cleveland. “I’m going to sit right here and have the best seat in the house, and I’m going to watch him do his thing,” Rozier said. “And I was a fan like that. But, of course, I still wanted the Celtics to win. But that’s just me loving the game. And it was just like, Oh let me see what I could take from his game and see the type of person, see how wired he is. “A lot of people don’t know how great of a person he is. A lot of people think I hate Kyrie. And a lot of people think that me and Kyrie not cool, but we text, and I text him right before free agency. I sent him the eyes, and he sent the eyes right back, basically like you know what it’s going to be.”
“Luckily, people respected what he did enough last year when he was a starter to put some faith in him,” Rozier’s agent, Aaron Turner said as he stood courtside after a Hornets summer league game. “People say, ‘Oh, Terry only shot this percentage.’ The Hornets are bringing him in to start. Look at his numbers as a starter. He’s right there with the elite, the [Mike] Conleys, the [Kyle] Lowrys. He’s not far behind Kyrie. He’s elite as a starter, and that’s what they’re bringing him in to do.”

Kemba Walker a Celtic

The Boston Celtics have acquired three-time All-Star and 2018-19 All-NBA guard Kemba Walker and a future second round pick (the least favorable of Brooklyn and New York’s 2020 picks) in a sign-and-trade agreement with the Charlotte Hornets in exchange for guard Terry Rozier and a future protected second round pick, the team announced today. 
 Walker, 29, joins Boston’s backcourt after an achievement-filled season in which he averaged a career-high 25.6 points (43.4% FG, 35.6% 3-PT, 84.4% FT), 4.4 rebounds, 5.9 assists, 1.2 steals and 34.9 minutes, while playing in all 82 games for the second time in his career (2012-13). He was one of only two NBA players to average at least 25.0 points, and 5.0 assists while playing in all 82 regular season games (Beal). “Kemba has excelled in this league for many years while consistently playing at a level among the NBA’s elite,” said Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge. “His expansive skillset and model of consistency will fit in seamlessly with what we’re trying to accomplish as an organization.”
