Napier averaged 9.6 points and 5.2 assists in the regular season, all for the Minnesota Timberwolves before being part of a four-team trade that included the Nuggets, Atlanta Hawks and Houston Rockets.
McRae averaged a career-high 12.8 points per game for Washington and made 37.7 percent of his shots from the three-point line.
Napier’s arrival helps fill in the void that then-starting point guard Isaiah Thomas leaves behind. Thomas was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers in a separate three-team deal on Thursday that also involved the New York Knicks.
