2019 Fantasy Outlook
Frazier is a journeyman, with his stop in Detroit marking his sixth franchise in five seasons. In 2018-19, he spent time with both the Pelicans and Bucks, appearing in 59 games and drawing 19 starts. Seeing 19.0 minutes per game, the point guard averaged 5.3 points on 4.4 shots, 4.2 assists and 2.8 rebounds -- in line with his career marks. With the Pistons this season, Frazier could certainly be a part of the every-night rotation, backing up the likes of Reggie Jackson and Derrick Rose at point guard. Both Jackson and Rose have an injury history, and Rose figures to see time at shooting guard as well. While Frazier's workload could be spotty, it's possible he'll claw into deep-league relevance depending on the health of Detroit's backcourt and how coach Dwane Casey opts to utilize Rose.

Personal Bio

Tim Frazier was born in 1990 in Houston, Texas. He is the son of Janice and Billy Frazier and has an older brother, William, and a sister, Krystal. Krystal was a standout collegiate basketball player at Rice University. Tim attended Strake Jesuit College Preparatory in Houston, Texas. Frazier's senior season was particularly impressive. In his senior season, he averaged 15.5 points, 7.7 boards, 5.5 assists, and an eye-popping 3.6 steals per contest, leading the Crusaders to a 37-1 record. Later, at Penn State, Tim Frazier was a four-time Academic All-Big Ten selection. You can follow Frazier on both Instagram and Twitter via @timfraz23.

College/International Summary

The 6-1 Frazier joined Penn State prior to the 2009-10 season. As a freshman, the point guard served as a backup for Talor Battle, but managed to start 10 games. He averaged 5.0 points and 2.4 assists for a team that won three games in Big Ten play. Frazier moved into the starting lineup as a sophomore, which allowed Battle to play off the ball more. He led the Nittany Lions with 5.1 assists to go along with 6.3 points and 3.9 rebounds. Frazier scored a season-high 22 points in the Big Ten tournament win over Michigan State and had 15 points and seven assists in the NCAA Tournament loss to Temple. In 2011-12, Frazier became a lead scorer. He paced Penn State with 18.8 points and 6.2 assists and had six double-doubles. The guard had 23 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists in a win over Nebraska. He was named to the All-Big-Ten first team and the All-Defense team. Things looked good for a solid senior year to cap Frazier's career, but he ruptured his Achilles' tendon in the fourth game of the season. The guard returned for his redshirt senior season and provided 14.9 points and 5.4 assists. Frazier finished his career with the seventh most assists in Big Ten history.

Past Season Summaries
2018

Just prior to the 2018-19 season, Frazier was claimed off waivers by the New Orleans Pelicans. He picked up a role with the team right away, and he ended up appearing in 47 games. Frazier also started 17 of those contests. He made 45.1 percent of his field goals with New Orleans, scoring 5.0 points per game. Frazier also averaged 4.4 assists and 2.9 boards for the Pellies. However, he was waived by the Pelicans in February. Roughly 18 days later, Frazier signed a deal with the Bucks for the remainder of the season.

His scoring average actually improved with the Bucks, as he averaged 6.3 points per contest. He also put up 3.5 assists and 2.6 rebounds a night with Milwaukee. Frazier ended the regular season with a bang. On Apr. 10, he played all 48 minutes against the Thunder, scoring 29 points and dishing 13 assists.

Two nights later against the Warriors, Frazier had 21 points, 10 assists and six rebounds. On the season, the Penn State product scored in double-figures 21 times and handed out at least 10 assists eight times. Against the Suns on Dec. 11, Frazier recorded a career-high five steals. In that same game, he registered a 14-point, 11-rebound, 11-assist triple-double, becoming just the second Pelicans player in franchise history to have a triple-double off the bench. In a win over the Hawks on Nov. 22, Frazier matched his season-high with 21 points to go with 14 assists, five rebounds and three steals. He hit a season-high three of his four three-point attempts in that contest.

Frazier notched double-digit assists in four of the final seven games of the regular season. In the season finale on April 13 in Minnesota, Frazier went for a career-high 15 assists.

2014

Undrafted out of Penn State in 2014, Frazier initially signed a training camp deal with the Celtics but was waived prior to the start of the regular season. On Feb. 5, he signed a 10-day contract with the 76ers.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2015
2014
Frazier spent the 2016-17 campaign largely as a backup to starting point guard Jrue Holiday in New Orleans, though drew 35 starts over his 65 appearances due to Holiday missing some games. On the year, Frazier, primarily a distributor, posted 7.1 points, 5.2 assists and 2.7 rebounds across 23.5 minutes per game. The 6-foot-1 point guard also shot 40.3 percent from the field and went 40-of-128 (31.3 percent) from beyond the arc. The Wizards were likely interested in his services for the possibility of John Wall missing games, as Frazier proved to be one of the more capable reserve point guards in the league last season when it comes to emergency starts. As a starter, Frazier posted 8.9 points and 6.9 assists across 29.1 minutes per game. He even flashed some impressive big-game upside, posting four games with at least 20 points, eight games with at least 10 assists and nine games with at least three steals. Notably, he recorded a triple-double on Dec. 11 against the Suns, posting 14 points (4-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 11 assists, 11 rebounds, five steals, one block and just one turnover across 38 minutes. While his reserve status likely makes him avoidable in the majority of year-long formats, he could make another splash in daily formats if he’s ever in line for extended run.
Frazier opened his second NBA season as a deep reserve for the Trail Blazers, frequently finding himself out of the rotation with the dynamic duo of Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum sucking up most of the minutes at point guard. Incidentally, it wasn't until Frazier was waived by the Blazers last February before his career began to take off. About a month after that, Frazier joined an injury-plagued Pelicans roster desperate for point guard help and almost immediately thrived. Frazier only started one of his 16 games with the club, but averaged 13.1 points (on 45% shooting), 7.5 assists, 4.4 rebounds and 1.4 steals across 29.3 minutes per game. Given his success with the club, it wasn't a surprise that the Pelicans opted to re-sign him on a two-year deal this summer. He was initially expected to open the upcoming season in a backup role, but with the news that Jrue Holiday will likely miss the first several weeks of the campaign to tend to a personal matter, Frazier now looks positioned to open the season as the starting point guard. His fantasy value will fade a bit once Holiday returns, but as he showed late in 2015-16, Frazier is certainly capable of delivering ample production when he receives a hefty dose of minutes. He'll make for a worthy target in the later rounds of fantasy drafts.
Frazier spent the bulk of last season with the Maine Red Claws of the D-League, but his MVP performance in the minor league prompted a pair of stints in the NBA itself. After a six-game run with the Sixers spanning the All-Star break, he signed with the Blazers for the remainder of the season on Mar. 31, averaging a collective 5.2 points (on 34 percent shooting), 5.5 assists, 2.5 rebounds, and 0.7 steals in 22 minutes across 11 contests. Portland will feature a revamped starting five due to this summer's mass exodus, with C.J. McCollum expected to replace the departed Wesley Matthews. If McCollum indeed starts over Gerald Henderson, a sprinkling of point-guard reps behind Damian Lillard could fall to either Frazier or Phil Pressey. Expect their respective performances in training camp to determine whose non-guaranteed deal transforms into a permanent roster spot.
Signed training camp deal with Celtics in September 2014.
