The Boston Celtics will find they have a tougher path to the 2024 NBA Finals after a conference rival traded for former Celtics combo guard Terry Rozier per new reporting from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. According to Woj, the “Charlotte Hornets are trading Terry Rozier to the Miami Heat for a 2027 first-round pick and Kyle Lowry.”
The Heat appear to be tired with their struggling to tread water in the lower range of the playoff seeding while dealing with what has been a revolving door of injuries to key players this season. Rozier is currently putting up a career-high 23.2 points and 6.6 assists per game, and should breathe new life into a faltering Heat season.
The Hornets reportedly do not plan to cut Lowry, and instead hope to use his $29.6 million contract to trade for another deal before the Feb. 8 deadline.
