Shabazz Napier is a small guy. Standing at 6’1, he looks like a little kid among the giant 7 footers and even 6 footers we see in the NBA. The Heat traded Napier to the Magic after trading with the Hornets to get him after one season, and one NBA general manger said the Heat traded Napier because he isn’t good enough for a player of his size.
One NBA general manager who spoke to the Heat said Heat brass realized Shabazz Napier “was not good enough. At that size (6-1), you have to be really quick or a very good shooter, and he’s neither.”
Interesting. Napier didn’t shoot that well from the field last year, shooting 38% from the field, but shot 36% from three.
