Point Guard

1. Terry Rozier

Terry Rozier is easily going to be the next starter for the Hornets. Charlotte acquired Rozier after losing Kemba Walker, and he was signed to a 3-year $58m contract. With this kind of money, Rozier should be the one starting.

Rozier has spent his entire career behind star point guards, and he has never gotten his chance to start consistently. As a starter for thirty games, he managed to average 14.4 points, 5.1 assists, and 5.9 rebounds per game.

He made a lot of noise in the 2017-18 playoffs when he averaged 16.5 points per game for the Celtics. He finally as a chance to be a starter with the Hornets, and I’m excited about what he can do with this chance.

2. Devonte Graham

Graham is easily going to be the backup point guard heading into next season. He did well in Summer League, and he proved that he has gotten better from last season.

The Hornets currently have no one else who could play this crucial backup role, so Graham will have a lot on his plate this season. He started his rookie year in the G-League, and now he will be starting next season as a backup point guard for an NBA team.

3. Cody Martin

Martin had some ups and downs during Summer League, but he proved that he could be a playmaker. He made some nice passes during Summer League, and he was even to make some difficult shots on the break.

The Hornets will need some time before they can get some NBA minutes from Martin, as he has a lot of work to do in the G-League. Martin is just one of the Hornets’ rookies that are expected to spend a significant amount of time in the G-League this year.
