NEW ORLEANS — Terry Rozier saw more than just dollars when he considered joining the Phoenix Suns at the dawn of the NBA's most hectic free agency summer ever.

"They're identity guys, they play hard," Rozier said before a loss Monday to the Suns. "Young, physical team. Want to win."

The New York Knicks also wanted Rozier, but so did Phoenix.

The Suns reportedly made a bigger offer, but he ended up signing a three-year, $58-million deal with the Charlotte Hornets as part of a sign-and-trade with Boston Celtics, which landed Kemba Walker.
