Penn State Basketball: Frazier Continues Workouts With NBA Teams As Draft Closes In

Tim Frazier's quest for an elusive spot on an NBA roster continues.

The former Nittany Lion has worked out with a good number of NBA teams leading up to the draft on June 26.

Having already shown off his skills to the Phoenix Suns, New York Knicks and Boston Celtics, Frazier has moved on with several more squads. Most recently Frazier has put his skills on display for the Minnesota Timberwolves, Washington Wizards, and Philadelphia 76rs. 

While Frazier might still have an uphill battle in front of him he has been working out with plenty of talent around him, his session with the Timberwolves included the likes of Shabazz Napier, Rion Brown, Eric Moreland, Ronald Roberts and fellow Big Ten hoop star in Ohio State's LaQuinton Ross. has Frazier ranked at No.79 in his draft class but multiple draft outlets have the former Nittany Lion ranked in the Top 20 of available point guards heading into the draft. 

That being said, Penn State head coach Patrick Chambers hasn't been afraid to heap praise on his former player, comparing him to at least one current NBA star.

“Tim is the fastest player I have ever coached and I have coached some fast players. He’s faster than Kyle Lowry (formerly of Villanova) who’s in the NBA now,” Chambers said. “Tim doesn’t get the credit he deserves for what he has done. He is a special talent – the way he can jump and his rim-to-rim speed. He wants to lead this team and he is our hardest worker. He wants to improve too. His shooting has gotten better and he has a lot of room to continue to improve his game.”

So as often is the case, Frazier can only work hard and let the rest take care of itself at the month's end.
