Free-agent guard Shabazz Napier has agreed to a two-year deal with the Brooklyn Nets, league sources told ESPN.

The deal includes a team option on the second year, league sources said.

Napier's pro career blossomed in the past two seasons with the Portland Trail Blazers, where he averaged a career-best 8.7 points and 20 minutes a game last year.

Napier, 27, will join a guard rotation for the Nets that includes D'Angelo Russell, Spencer Dinwiddie and Joe Harris.

Napier has averaged 5.7 points and 1.9 assists in four NBA seasons, including with the Blazers, Orlando Magic and Miami Heat.

Napier was the 24th overall pick in the 2014 NBA draft.
