Rozier has been the most frequent user of flare screens in the last three seasons, resulting in highly productive possessions for Charlotte. Spoelstra has achieved great success by utilizing Robinson, Herro, and Max Strus in these plays over the years, and Rozier's willingness to relocate before receiving the ball should seamlessly integrate into the system. The presence of movement shooters often brings a rejuvenating effect to any lineup.

Rozier's performance as a pick-and-roll ball-handler this season has been impressive, averaging 1.11 points per possession on 7.6 opportunities per game. Considering that Rozier achieved these numbers while playing for the Hornets, with Adebayo providing screens, Rozier's impact could be even greater.

Rozier, being 6-foot-1, faces challenges in being an effective defender without exceptional instincts or a body type that can withstand physicality. However, he does possess good hands, ranking third on Charlotte with 1.8 deflections per game. This skill should complement Spoelstra's aggressive defensive system.
