Wizards news: Houston native Tim Frazier moved by Washington’s support after Hurricane Harvey
Despite being part of the Washington Wizards for only a month now, newly-signed guard Tim Frazier already feels the love from the entire organization. A Houston native, the 26-year-old has seen his hometown get slammed hard recently by Hurricane Harvey.
Frazier himself was not able to move freely the past week, due to the high water levels and flooding. During the course of the city’s ordeal, he shared that almost everyone from his new team checked on him and wanted to know if he was safe.
Known to have good relationships with his past teammates, Frazier was admittedly moved by the gesture made by his team, despite being new to Washington. He even said, via Candace Buckner of The Washington Post, that it’s really something that made him feel good, knowing that the whole franchise is supporting him.
“Honestly, I don’t want to say it caught me off guard but it kind of did. They’ve only known me, what, a month or so? But … it wasn’t a hesitation in the thought process,” Frazier said. “It’s just an awesome feeling to know you have that support from your brothers and the people in your organization.”
“It was literally the entire organization checking in on me.”
Frazier was traded to the Wizards during last June’s draft in exchange for the 52nd overall pick. He is a three-year league veteran, and has played for the Philadelphia 76ers, Portland Trail Blazers, and the New Orleans Pelicans, which is the team he suited up for the past two seasons. He owns career averages of 6.2 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 4.4 assists.
