I don't know what is delusional about Rozier feeling he is of starting PG quality which he's shown he'd been for 3 years running now whenever he had the opportunity. He had several teams looking to sign him last summer for that role which is what drove the price up for Charlotte. He just happened to be stuck in an awful role for him behind Kyrie and playing with other guys on the second unit also looking to put up numbers as they entered FA.Yeah, I don't know that he's so much a jerk, it's just that unfortunately he's somewhat delusional as to what his best role is as a player. He found a team who agreed with that delusion though, so you can't really argue with his approach. Getting $57M guaranteed as a backup PG drafted #16 is a 99th percentile outcome, financially speaking.
He doesn't get paid that if he decides to be athletic Patrick Beverly, which is his best role in purely basketball terms.
