Lakers Trade For Hornets’ Terry Rozier In Bold Proposal

NBA Analysis

Some NBA stars shine so bright that they can’t be denied. There’s no question as to whether a team should build around them. The question is – how do they do that? What’s the best way to build around that player? 

For a long time, LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers has been the standard. If a player on James’ roster doesn’t fit with him, you trade that player. James is the priority. That’s how talented he is. James is one of the best players in the history of the NBA. 

Traditionally, he’s thrived alongside a shot-creating guard. James can handle the bulk of the playmaking. For what reason, he’s had a lot of success alongside alpha scorers. As it stands, the Lakers don’t have that type of player on their roster.

Could they make a move for Terry Rozier of the Charlotte Hornets?

LaMelo Ball is one of those stars, too. At least, he’s looked like one throughout most of his NBA career so far. The Hornets seem well aware of that fact. In the 2023 NBA draft, they used the second overall pick to select a player who would complement him. 

This was a controversial decision. Most analysts had Scoot Henderson at number two on their big board. The Hornets selected Brandon Miller anyway. They didn’t want to put another ball-dominant guard alongside Ball. How has that decision looked so far? 

It’s been interesting. Miller has been fantastic throughout his debut season. By contrast, Henderson has struggled early.

Sending him to the Hornets in exchange for Rozier will make them a much stronger team. After all, he’s a player that compliments LeBron James.
