Frazier was claimed off waivers by the Pelicans on Wednesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Frazier was waived by the Bucks just a few days ago and will now be scooped up by New Orleans. Look for the 27-year-old guard to slot in as depth in the backcourt, but he'll struggle to see meaningful minutes with the likes of Elfrid Payton, Jrue Holiday and Ian Clark present at the position.
Frazier will be waived by the Bucks on Monday, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports. This move isn't too surprising given the Bucks' depth in the backcourt, especially at the point guard position. With Matthew Dellavedova still under contract and rookie Donte DiVincenzo locks to make the final roster, Frazier ended up being the odd-man out. Frazier, however, has managed to latch onto teams in year's past and has plenty of in-game experience, so he should get another NBA opportunity down the road.
Frazier tallied 14 points (5-8 FG, 4-5 3Pt), five assists and two rebounds in 19 minutes during Tuesday's 119-115 preseason loss to the Thunder. Frazier, who signed a training camp deal only a few weeks prior, managed 14 points to go with five assists in 19 minutes Tuesday. Frazier has shown the ability to have some standard league value over the past two seasons but is going to struggle to even lock in a spot on the Bucks squad. He is not a fantasy relevant player at this stage.
Frazier signed a training camp contract with the Bucks on Saturday. Frazier played a backup role in Washington last season, seeing 14.2 minutes per game across 59 appearances. He averaged 3.0 points, 3.3 assists and 1.9 rebounds. He struggled shooting the ball, however, hitting just 39.5 percent of his looks from the field.
Frazier (nose) will play during Thursday's game against the Cavaliers with no restrictions, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports. Frazier has been fitted with a mask following a broken nose Feb. 10 against Chicago and subsequently sitting out the following game against New York. In the seven games prior to suffering the injury, Frazier averaged 2.9 points, 2.0 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 1.6 steals across 18.1 minutes per game.
