Rival of the Celtics Closes a Deal for Terry Rozier

The Miami Heat signed a player that meets their ideal scoring guard profile, having missed out on Damian Lillard this summer.


The Miami Heat signed an acquisition of Terry Rozier two days prior to the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat’s second meeting of the season, which the former won 119-111 at home.


The claim originates from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, who also notes that Miami’s 2027 first-round selection, which it sent to the Charlotte Hornets along with Kyle Lowry, an eight-year veteran, is lottery-protected. If it gets transmitted to 2028, it loses its protection.


Even though Bam Adebayo and the other Heat players have all missed time this season, Rozier is joining a squad that needs more offensive firepower. With 110.9 points per game, Miami is ranked 26th in the league.

Known mostly for his scoring prowess, the 29-year-old guard is averaging 23.2 points, 6.6 assists, 3.9 rebounds, and 1.1 steals so far this season. On 7.7 attempts, he is shooting 35.8 percent from beyond the arc. This is consistent with his career three-point shooting percentage of 36.7 percent on 5.7 attempts.


According to Jake Fischer of Yahoo Sports, Rozier chose to bring his skills to South Beach. He joins a group of players that are led by unselfish players like Adebayo and Jimmy Butler, who don’t mind sharing the scoring load.


The former is infamous for maintaining his composure, especially during postseason matches. It’s also a safe bet that he will appreciate the assistance, even though the latter has developed in that area out of necessity in the 2023–24 campaign as a result of the Heat frequently playing with a shortage of players.
