Former All-Big Ten Guard Tim Frazier Signs Two-Year Deal With Pelicans

One of Penn State basketball’s most dynamic players in recent history, Tim Frazier, seems to finally have found a home. The former Nittany Lion captain signed a guaranteed two-year, $4.1 Million deal, keeping him with the New Orleans Pelicans.

Frazier joined the Pelicans in the middle of last season after being waived by the Portland Trailblazers. Originally signing just a 10-day contract, Frazier made an immediate impact in New Orleans, earning him a deal for the rest of the season. The guard seemed to click much better with the Pelicans, getting significantly more playing time, and contributing much more — from 1.5 points and 1.2 assists per game with the Blazers, to 13.1 points and 7.5 assists per game with New Orleans.

Frazier was a member of Penn State’s last NCAA tournament team in 2010-2011 and a centerpiece of the team during his time in Happy Valley. He earned first team All-Big Ten honors during for his performance in the 2011-2012 season, and was a third team All-Big Ten selection for the 2013-2014 season. Frazier is the only Penn Stater in the NBA currently, breaking a drought that went well into the 2000’s, when Joe Crispin played. However, with Pat Chambers’ recruiting ability, it seems that the odds are better now than ever that another Nittany Lion will soon join Frazier in the NBA.
