Nets' Shabazz Napier: Reaches deal with Brooklyn
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Napier agreed to terms Saturday with the Nets on a two-year contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Napier, the 24th overall pick in the 2014 Draft, set a new career high in minutes played last season, having his best year as a pro in the process. Most notably, he started 10 games for the Trail Blazers, averaging 15.0 points, 4.4 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.6 steals in those tilts while shooting 40.8 percent from the field and 34.8 percent from deep. While the backcourt rotation he's joining in Brooklyn isn't as top-heavy as it was in Portland, he'll likely still have to battle for playing time with the likes of D'Angelo Russell, Spencer Dinwiddie, Caris LeVert and others.

Trail Blazers' Shabazz Napier: Leads bench in scoring Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Napier totaled nine points (3-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and three rebounds across 14 minutes in a 102-93 win over the Jazz on Wednesday.

Napier's scoring total led the second unit, something that the fourth-year guard has been able to accomplish on a fair number of occasions throughout the season. The former first-round pick has proven his worth as a valuable backup to Damian Lillard over the course of the campaign, even doing an admirable fill-in job when the latter struggled with various injuries. Factoring in Wednesday's finale, Napier finished his second Blazers season with career bests in points (8.7), shooting percentage (42.0), three-point shooting percentage (37.6), free-throw percentage (84.1), rebounds (2.3) and steals (1.1).

Trail Blazers' Shabazz Napier: Heading back to bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Napier, with Damian Lillard (ankle) returning to the starting lineup, will head back to the bench for Saturday's game against the Spurs, Jason Quick of NBC Sports Northwest reports.

As expected, Napier will head back to his usual bench role. In his 61 appearances off the bench this season, he's averaged 7.7 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 18.9 minutes.

Trail Blazers' Shabazz Napier: Scores eight points in 29 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Napier scored 8 points (2-9 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), grabbed four rebounds, dished two assists and snatched one steal in 29 minutes Thursday in Portland's loss to Houston.

Napier stepped up to fill the void left by Damian Lillard (ankle) Thursday night against the Rockets, which is no easy task considering the circumstances. The fourth-year point guard nearly replicated his averages for the 2017-18 season. He may grow more comfortable in the role if Lillard misses extended time, and for that reason, he is worth keeping on your fantasy radar as we work our way down the home stretch.

Trail Blazers' Shabazz Napier: Starting at point guard Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Napier will start at point guard for Thursday's game against the Rockets, Trail Blazers courtside reporter Brooke Olzendam reports.

The Trail Blazers are set to be without Damian Lillard (ankle) on Thursday, so Napier will get the call with the first unit and should push for 30-plus minutes. In nine previous starts this season, Napier has averaged 15.8 points, 4.4 rebounds and 4.4 assists across 33.7 minutes, which makes him one of the more intriguing value plays for Thursday's DFS slate.
