The Blazers have signed rookie guard Tim Frazier, who has played in the D-League as well as a brief stint with the Sixers. The team announced the signing in a press release on Monday:
The Portland Trail Blazers have signed guard Tim Frazier for the remainder of the season, President of Basketball Operations Neil Olshey announced today. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Frazier, 24, signed two 10-day contracts with the Philadelphia 76ers last month, averaging 5.7 points, 3.2 rebounds, 7.2 assists and 1.00 steal in six games (three starts).
Frazier (6-1, 170) joins the Trail Blazers from the Maine Red Claws of the NBA Development League, where he posted averages of 16.1 points, 7.1 rebounds, 9.5 assists and 1.66 steals in 41 games (40 starts) this season.
The D-League leader with four triple-doubles, Frazier is a three-time D-League Performer of the Week. Frazier played for Penn State from 2009-14, earning First Team All-Big Ten honors his junior year.
He will wear No. 10 for the Trail Blazers.
Since Wesley Matthews went down for the season with a torn left Achilles, the Blazers have been a little shorthanded in the backcourt. Frazier probably won’t be playing heavy minutes, but they need bodies at that position and it can’t hurt to give a D-Leaguer a look.
