Rozier might end up being decent, but are people serious about him as anything other than average at best? Average is even pushing it so far.  As a 3rd to 4th option at best he was...

  • A 38% shooter. 35% from 3. He gets to the line a whopping ONCE per game. 12.9 PER, 3.2 Win Shares. 19 mil.  

Compare that to a perfectly average guys from last year...

Darren Collison (10 million per year)

  • 47% FG, 40% from 3. 2.5 FT attempts per game. 16.7 PER, 6.8 Win Shares. 

D.J. Augustin (7.25 million)

  • 47% FG, 42% from 3. 2.6 FTA/Game. 15.7 PER, 6.9 WS. 

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (Hornet for 5 minutes, our PG if Kemba were trade, Rookie Deal)

  • 47% FG, 36.7% from 3. 2.4 FTA/Game. 13.4 PER, 3.3 WS. 

Dennis Schroder (15.5 million - - a bad contract)

  • 41% FG, 34% from 3. 2.9 FTA/Game. 12.7 PER, 2.9 WS. 


Rozier was worse (and twice as expensive) as career average player Darren Collison.  Three times the cost, for maybe half the production of DJ freaking Augustin. Outplayed by rookie SGA. And a somewhat decent comp in Dennis Schroder, yeah he's giving you about the same production, at a higher cost, than a guy already on a bad contract. 

Rozier's signing may work out, sure.  But for the same money you could've had Danny Green AND Rodney Hood.  Or grab Seth Curry and Kevon Looney. Or hell, Tyus Jones, Seth Curry, and Rodney Hood for the Duke trifecta. This contract has been the butt of jokes since it was offered, and just another means of the Hornets blowing money on average at best guys. 



Just another bad Bobnets contract. Nothing to see here.

The numbers are mind boggling...Rozier goes from a backup making 2.2 mill to almost 20 mill per year for 3 years.  I can't really understand why.  He hasn't been good.  Really, really stupid IMO. 

Anyway...complaining about the management of this team now is beating a dead horse.  We are the worst team in the NBA in that regard and that isn't changing for at least 3 years.  Even then, doubt these clowns can turn it around.
