Free agency begins at 3:00 p.m. PT, and the rumors are beginning to really pile up. The latest rumor involves the Clippers discussing a potential deal involving Terry Rozier from the Charlotte Hornets.

This would involve a trade, as opposed to just signing him in free agency. Rozier signed with the Hornets last season as a free agent. He signed a deal for three years worth nearly $60 million.

In his first full season as a starter, Rozier averaged 18 points, four assists and four rebounds a game. He also shot 40 percent from deep and knocked down a career-high 172 threes.

This could be potentially interesting, as this could be a deal involving Montrezl Harrell in a sign-and-trade. There’s a good possibility the Clippers bring Harrell back, but there have been rumblings of him being used in a potential sign-and-trade, and he is originally from North Carolina, so he could play close to home.

Picking up Rozier could be a nice addition for the Clippers, as they struck out on seemingly every point guard they were interested in over the past week. He’s owned nearly $37 million over the next two seasons, so the Clippers would have to make a few moves in the coming weeks in order to make the numbers work.

As we’ve seen in recent years, including this week with the Luke Kennard trade, there’s no knowing what the Clippers have up their sleeves. Set your alarms from 3:00 p.m., turn those Twitter notifications on, and get ready for chaos.
