CHARLOTTE, N.C. — With Kemba Walker departing for Boston, the Charlotte Hornets formally announced on Saturday it signed former Celtics guard Terry Rozier.
Multiple reports have Rozier signing a three-year, $58 million deal.
“We’re excited to be able to acquire Terry in this sign-and-trade deal. He is an up-and-coming player who has shown continued improvement in his four NBA seasons, and we believe he can take that next step as a starting point guard in this league,” Hornets General Manager Mitch Kupchak said in a news release.
Rozier has played all four of his professional seasons with the Celtics after being drafted by the team at No. 16 overall in 2015. He was primarily a starter for the Celtics in 2018, before seeing his role somewhat diminished last season after the team’s acquisition of Kyrie Irving.
