Press release from The New Orleans Pelicans:
The New Orleans Pelicans have announced that the team has acquired the 52nd overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft from the Washington Wizards in exchange for point guard Tim Frazier.
Frazier, 6-1, 170, was originally signed by New Orleans on March 16, 2016. In 81 career games with the Pelicans, Frazier averaged 8.3 points, 5.6 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 24.6 minutes per contest. Undrafted out of Penn State in 2014, Frazier has appeared in 127 career regular season games with Philadelphia, Portland and New Orleans, holding averages of 6.2 points, 4.4 assists and 2.4 rebounds per game.
i am hoping that the Pelicans will draft 2 wing “3 and D” guys tonight. The Pelicans have the best front court in basketball and it could end up being an historic front court if they stay together. What the team needs however, is shooting. I’m hoping Tyler Dorsey (SG Oregon), Frank Jackson (SG Duke) or Devin Robinson (SF Florida) find themselves holding a Pelicans’ jersey tonight!
