Napier had a year-long career with Portland in 2017-18. He averaged 8.7 points and 2.3 rebounds in 72 games while downing 37.6 percent of his 3-point attempts.

The Blazers made Napier a free agent without restrictions when they refused to grant him a qualifying offer in late June.

Napier began his career with the Heat and played one season with the Magic before being traded to Portland in July 2016.

The Nets finished 2017-18 with a record of 28-54 and missed the playoffs by third consecutive season. They changed point guard Jeremy Lin to the Hawks earlier this week.
