Shabazz Napier has reportedly been dealt from the Miami Heat to the Orlando Magic according to Yahoo! Sports' ace basketball insider Adrian Wojnarowski.

The deal will send the 2012-13 All-Big East First Team representative from one Sunshine State NBA team to another as Miami has decided to part ways with the 24-year old guard who was selected with the No. 24 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. Napier was acquired on draft day by the Heat in a trade with the Charlotte Hornets. The Heat will be reportedly fetching a future second-round pick in exchange for the former UConn Husky.

Shabazz averaged 5.1 points, 2.5 assists and 2.2 rebounds with the Heat last season while partaking in 51 games. While at Connecticut, Shabazz won two NCAA championships in 2011 and 2014 while also being named to the Big East All-Rookie team in his first season in Storrs.
