GM Tommy Sheppard said that the Wizards plan to retain Shabazz Napier in free agency.
The Wizards acquired Napier from the Nuggets in exchange for Jordan McRae at the trade deadline. Napier appeared in 15 games for Washington before the season was suspended. He started eight games and averaged 12.2 points, 4.4 assists, 2.4 rebounds and 1.7 steals while shooting 43.1% from the field and 38.1% from downtown. Assuming John Wall comes back healthy next season, Washington will have plenty of depth at PG; however, Sheppard says the plan is to bring Napier back. Apr 10 10:30 am (EST)
