LeBron James got Shabazz Napier to the Heat.

Since, the former Connecticut point guard has had a hard time sticking.

Miami traded him to the Magic for a top-55-protected second-round pick that never conveyed. Now, Orlando is dealing him to the Trail Blazers for another minimal return.

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel:

Napier hasn’t made a dent in two seasons. The 6-foot-1 guard has looked hopeless finishing at the rim, and his lack of strength has been too much to overcome defensively.

Still, he’s just 24. The last time the Magic dumped a young untested player on Portland, the Trail Blazers got a steal in Maurice Harkless.
