Tim Frazier could make move into Pelicans starting lineup
Tim Frazier has emerged as a “safe bet” to become the New Orleans Pelicans starting point guard to start the season, according to Brett Dawson of the New Orleans Advocate.
Undrafted out of Penn State, Frazier isn’t a big name in the NBA, but he’s made an impression on Alvin Gentry and his coaching staff.
The 6-foot-1 guard has been on three teams in his two years in the league, but made a splash at the end of last season — scoring in double figures in 13 of his 16 appearances for the Pelicans.
Frazier posted averages of 13.3 points, 10.4 assists, 4.9 rebounds and two steals per game in the month of April.
While being a fairly small point guard, his ability to penetrate and find the open man is uncanny and he can prove to be a huge asset for the team is he improves his shot selection.
