Terry Rozier to the Hornets in sign-and-trade, per report

The Charlotte Hornets might have lost All-Star Kemba Walker to the Boston Celtics in free agency, but they are set to replace him with a younger guard.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Terry Rozier is expected to land with the Hornets in a sign-and-trade with the above-mentioned Celtics.

After low-balling Walker, it’s an absolute shock to see the Hornets hand out nearly $20 million per season to a player in Rozier who has never averaged more than 11.3 points per game.

Last season saw the 25-year-old Rozier average 9.0 points on 39 percent shooting from the field.
