Coach Terry Stotts said Tuesday that Frazier will play for the Blazers' at the Las Vegas Summer League in July and be invited to participate in training camp next fall for the start of the 2015-16 NBA season. Frazier was scheduled to arrive into Portland Tuesday evening and will be in uniform for the Blazers' Wednesday night home game against the Los Angeles Clippers. "I have not seen him play, but from what I've been told, he's a good point guard, he's a good defender," Stotts said. "He's the kind of guy you would want in your program." Oregonian

Frazier, 24, is not expected to play -- barring an injury, he will be inactive against the Clippers -- but he will practice, giving the Blazers an extra guard during 4-on-4 and 3-on-3 drills and scrimmages. He will be eligible to play in the postseason. "Moving forward, I think it's in the best interest of the franchise," Stotts said. "This is not a playoff move. This is a moving forward move."

Ian Clark underwent a cram session on the Nuggets' playbook on Monday afternoon, knowing that his stay will last beyond the final eight games of the season. "It's like a new start for me," Clark said. "That's how I look at it." The plan for Clark, a 6-foot-3 guard the Nuggets were awarded off of waivers last week, extends into the summer. He said he'll be part of the Nuggets' summer league team. Clark has spent the majority of his first two years as a pro bouncing between the Utah Jazz and their D-League affiliate, the Idaho Stampede. He was let go by the Jazz on March 26. Denver Post

Lionel Hollins has been at odds with Brook Lopez at times this season. But that doesn’t mean he wants a breakup. “I don’t worry about whether he’s going to be a free agent, whether he’s going to be back, or anything like that,” Hollins said. “Obviously I’d like for him to be back. I hope he’s going to be back. But those decisions are not mine, and I don’t worry about it.” The Brooklyn Game

When pressed further about his role in the team’s decision-making process, Hollins grew exasperated. “I just said I want him back. How many damn times do I have to say that? Damn.” Hollins then turned to each individual reporter, repeating the mantra: “I want him back. I want him back. I want him back. Okay, everybody got it? I want him back. I want him back. But it’s still his call.” The Brooklyn Game
