The Suns reportedly pursued Rozier in 2019 and he nearly signed there before the Celtics arrange a sign-and-trade with the Hornets. Now, NBA insider Marc Stein mentioned Rozier is once again a potential target for the Suns. The Hornets are expected to listen to suitors for Rozier, per The Athletic’s Shams Charania.
Rozier is quietly averaging a career-high 21.4 points per game while also recording a personal-best 5.2 assists per game.
However, this has also been his least efficient campaign since joining the Hornets. His shot chart indicates that he has been either average or below average relative to his position from virtually every zone of the floor.
Rozier is still owed $24.9 million average annual value over each of the next three seasons, so he would eat into Phoenix’s expenditures fairly quickly.
