Penn State Basketball: Frazier's NBA Quest Continues With Solid Summer League Showing

by on July 16, 2014 2:00 PM

The Philadelphia 76ers may have picked up nearly every available player in the 2014 NBA Draft but former Nittany Lion Tim Frazier is making the most of his time on the court for his summer league squad.

Having played in both of the Sixers' Las Vegas summer league games so far the 6-foot-1 guard has put up the kind of numbers fans have been accustomed to seeing while he was still in Happy Valley.

In the opening game of his professional career, Frazier logged 21 minutes while scoring 4 points on 2-of-5 shooting. Frazier also hauled in 4 rebounds, dished out 4 assists and registered 2 steals. All things considered it was an effective debut for a player just trying to show a wide array of skills. 

Frazier improved on his initial showing on Tuesday night despite playing fewer minutes. In Frazier's 18 minutes of playing time he went 3-of-8 from the field for 6 points while pulling down 6 rebounds, picking up 2 assists and 2 steals.

In total Frazier is averaging 5 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals per game.

Tonight Frazier will get a chance to continue his improving play at 10:30 PM in the first elimination game of the winner's summer league bracket. A loss against the Lakers would send Frazier and Sixers down to the "losers" bracket.

Either way, Frazier will look to continue to make the most of his chances with at least two more games with a Sixers' uniform on. While Philadelphia may have an abundance of talent to choose from this year, Frazier might be able to turn a few heads at other organizations if he can keep up his averages.

In the end if he makes the most of opportunities there isn't much more Frazier can ask for.
