Report: Former Penn State Hoops Guard Tim Frazier Waived By Detroit Pistons

Former Penn State men’s basketball star Tim Frazier was reportedly waived by the Detroit Pistons Thursday afternoon, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Frazier signed a one-year deal with Detroit back in July. Up to this point in the season, he averaged 3.6 points, 1.2 rebounds, and 3.4 assists per game coming off the bench. His best performance of the season came against the Washington Wizards in December, when he totaled 17 points after shooting 83.3% from beyond the arc.

Before landing in Detroit, Frazier bounced around between several NBA teams including the New Orleans Pelicans, Washington Wizards, and Milwaukee Bucks. He wasn’t selected in the NBA Draft after graduating from Penn State in 2014 and spent plenty of time in the G League before getting called up to the big leagues.

Frazier signed a deal with the Maine Red Claws — the Boston Celtics’ then D-League (now G-League) affiliate — in 2015 and eventually earned the league’s MVP and Rookie of the Year awards after averaging 16.1 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 9.5 assists per game.

Despite serving as an NBA journeyman, Frazier found great success in his college years. He earned first-team All-Big Ten honors in his junior year after averaging 18.8 points, 6.2 assists, and 2.3 steals per game with the Nittany Lions.

At this point in time, it’s not clear what the future holds for Frazier’s NBA career. It’s possible he’ll land with yet another team once the league’s trade deadline wraps up Thursday.
