Sixers sign Penn State's Frazier to 10-day deal

PHILADELPHIA (The Phanatic Magazine) – The 76ers have signed guard Tim Frazier to a 10-day contract. 

Frazier is the 31st call-up of the 2014-15 NBA Development League season.

In 27 games with 26 starts for the Maine Red Claws of the D-League this season, Frazier averaged 16 points, nine assists, seven rebounds and two steals.  At the time of his call-up, Frazier ranked third in the D-League in assists and tied for fourth in steals.   A two-time D-League Performer of the Week, Frazier was also selected to the D-League All-Star Game and earned 2015 NBA D-League Showcase Third Team honors.

Back in July, Frazier competed for the Sixers in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, appearing in five games with four starts.  Frazier also saw action in four preseason games for Boston before signing with the Celtics D-League affiliate, Maine.

Frazier was eligible for the 2014 NBA Draft following a standout career at Penn State.  He finished his career as the Lions all-time leader in assists and became the second player in conference history to record 1,000 points, 600 assists and 500 rebounds.  Former Sixer Calvin Booth, who finished his career in 2008-09, was the last Penn State player in the NBA.
