Shabazz Napier is back on the move after agreeing to a two-year agreement with the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday, according to Adrian Wojnarowski .

Napier became an unrestricted free agent after the Portland Trail Blazers refused to make him a qualifying offer.

In four seasons of the NBA, Napier has moved a lot. The Miami Heat selected him 24th overall in 2014 after being the Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four when he led the University of Connecticut for a national championship.

Napier's actions were at an all-time high after the NCAA tournament race, as LeBron James, who was in his final months with the Heat before signing with the Cleveland Cavaliers, was became one of his main followers: [19659007] LeBron James @ KingJames

You can not take another PG in the lottery before Napier.

Napier even acknowledged in February that James' tweet was something that remained about his career for a long time.

"For everyone else, he was great, every time he says something, he's great, and that's because of the impact he has," Napier told reporters . "But, for me as a person, I always try to live in the moment." I do not look at him like, "Oh, this guy said my name." It does not have a big impact on my life.

The Heat traded Napier after his rookie season with the Orlando Magic, where he spent a year before being sent to the Trail Blazers.

Last season was the best of Napier's career. The 27-year-old averaged 8.7 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.0 badists in 74 games.

Upon leaving that performance, Napier cashed the money at the perfect time. He has become a solid role player who can leave the bench and execute the point for a playoff team.

The Nets found an excellent point guard under the radar that can shoot and pbad.
