Shabazz Napier
Could stay in Washington
GWashington Wizards
June 1, 2020
Wizards general manager Tommy Sheppard said April 9 in an interview with Washington radio play-by-play announcer Dave Johnson that he's hopeful to re-sign Napier when the guard becomes a free agent this offseason. "I think with [Napier and Davis Bertans] ... we acquired them not as rentals, we acquired them to stay here," Sheppard said. "I think the players that we acquired, they're here to show that they can be here for the future. With Davis and Shabazz, they showed enough to us that certainly we would love to retain them. We plan to."
