By James Herbert | NBA writer

The Charlotte Hornets selected UConn guard Shabazz Napier with the No. 24 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. They then traded him to the Miami Heat for the No. 26 and 55 picks, plus a future second-round pick, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.

The 6-1, 180-pound Napier averaged 18.0 points and 4.9 assists per game during his senior season for UConn, which finished 32-8 and defeated Kentucky for the national championship.

Napier was named the tournament's Most Outstanding Player. CBSSports.com's Matt Moore gave the pick a B-.

Famously, LeBron James is a fan of Napier's:
