Tim Frazier Waived By Boston Celtics, Assigned To D-League
Former Penn State basketball great Tim Frazier, who holds the career assists record for the Nittany Lions, was waived by the Boston Celtics yesterday and assigned to Boston’s NBA D-League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws.
The point guard was one of four players waived by the Celtics. It was a long shot that Frazier would make Boston’s final roster, as he was buried in a crowded backcourt led by former All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo.
Frazier’s NBA journey began with a summer league invite by the Philadelphia 76ers after going undrafted in the 2014 NBA Draft. He performed well enough for the Sixers to attract the interest of other teams, including the Celtics. After the summer league season concluded, the Celtics added Frazier as a camp invite.
During his brief stay in Boston, he flashed moments of brilliance, including this impressive assist to Rodney McGruder in a preseason game against the New York Knicks.
While we won’t see Frazier in a Celtics’ uniform anytime soon, he could still be recalled by the team, barring any major trades or injuries.
During the preseason, Frazier went 1-for-2 from the field, grabbed two rebounds, dished four assists, and recorded four steals.
