Former Penn State basketball standout Tim Frazier has signed a one-year deal with the Detroit Pistons worth $2 million. Frazier will start as the the third point guard for the Pistons behind starter Reggie Jackson, and newly acquired Derrick Rose who also signed with the team as a free agent.

Frazier ended the 2018-19 season as a member of the Milwaukee Bucks after starting the year in New Orleans with the Pelicans. He was waived in February, opening the door for a return to Milwaukee, where he spent training camp prior to the start of the season.

Frazier averaged 5.3 points per game and 4.2 assist per game last season between New Orleans and Milwaukee, including a career high 29 point, 13 assist performance for the Bucks in April. The former Nittany Lion went undrafted in 2014, but has now played in 245 NBA games over five seasons with the 76ers, Trailblazers, Pelicans, Wizards and Bucks.
