Some people are saying this trade makes way for a guy like Josh Richardson. Napier is coming off a very productive summer league, so he got him off the books when his stock was high. Lets not forget Napier was picked at #28, so it was a pretty even exchange.
On the flip side we have a roster spot for Josh Richardson who fits the mold of that 3&D guy they are always preaching about. Richardson is more valuable to the Heat because of his versatility at the 1 & 2 spot. Napier despite being a good passer and play maker is a defensive liability.
Richardson reminds me of an Eddie Jones type player. Makes his living on defense, but can get buckets. Not nearly as athletic tho, so we'll see.
