On Saturday, the Brooklyn Nets got themselves a solid backup veteran guard in Shabazz Napier. What can he bring to Brooklyn and what will his role be?
The signing was not a complete surprise for Nets fans but it was not expected. This is the second Portland Trail Blazers free agent Brooklyn has signed this offseason.
Brooklyn signed Ed Davis shortly after free agency was under way. Interestingly, former Nets guard Nik Stauskus signed with Portland this offseason. Well for Nets fans, losing Stauskas and adding Davis and Napier is great.
Before the Napier signing, Brooklyn cut its list of guards from five to three this past week. Now that Napier is a Brooklyn Net, the point guard rotation will likely be Russell, Dinwiddie then Napier. Let’s first talk about where Napier will likely be on the Nets guard rotation.
