After his recent departure from the New Orleans Pelicans, former Penn State basketball star Tim Frazier has found his new home in Milwaukee. Frazier will team up with the frontrunner for the 2018-19 NBA MVP award, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and the Milwaukee Bucks, which boast the best record in the NBA this season.
The backup point guard extraordinaire — who gives the Bucks some much needed backcourt depth following an injury that is expected to keep starting guard Malcolm Brogdon out 6-8 weeks — will compete for a Milwaukee side that has already clinched a playoff spot.

In 47 games with the Pelicans this season, Frazier averaged 5 points, 4.4 assists, 2.9 rebounds, and 0.5 steals per game. The Bucks will become Frazier's fifth team, after stints with Philadelphia, Portland, Washington, and two separate runs with New Orleans.
