Bobby Marks: 1/3 . The NBA tweaked the roster rules to allow teams to sign a player to a 10-Day contract via the hardship exception. Teams originally were allowed to sign a player to a non-guaranteed contract and incur a per day cap hit before 10-Day contracts started (normally Jan. 5).
Shams Charania: The Memphis Grizzlies are signing free agent guard Tim Frazier via hardship exception, sources tell @The Athletic @Stadium.
The Milwaukee Bucks have signed guard Tim Frazier. Frazier, 28, played 47 games (17 starts) this season for the New Orleans Pelicans and averaged 5.0 points, 4.4 assists and 2.9 rebounds in 19.3 minutes per game. He was waived by the Pelicans on Feb. 28.
The Milwaukee Bucks need help at the guard position. Malcolm Brogdon, Donte DiVincenzo and Sterling Brown are all out with injuries and George Hill is still only playing limited minutes as he works back from a strained left adductor muscle. With that in mind, the Bucks made a difficult decision Monday, opting to waive forward Christian Wood to clear a roster spot to sign point guard Tim Frazier. Wood initially beat out Frazier for a spot in training camp, but with multiple forwards ahead of Wood in the lineup and a depleted corps of guards, the team had to make a move to balance its roster ahead of the playoffs.
Frazier, a 6-1 guard, has bounced between four NBA teams in his five seasons, most recently playing with the New Orleans Pelicans after getting cut by the Bucks in camp. He averaged 5.0 points and 4.4 assists while shooting 35.1 percent on three-pointers in 47 games with the Pelicans before being waived at the end of February so New Orleans could sign Dairis Bertans. During the preseason, Frazier was one of the better performers among the Bucks' roster hopefuls. His best game came in Oklahoma City, where he scored 14 points on 5-of-8 shooting, including making 4 of 5 three-pointers. He led a frenzied comeback, connecting on a 29-foot three-pointer with 0.9 of a second left to send the game to overtime.
Bobby Marks: Milwaukee receives $18,321 in savings with Tim Frazier claimed by New Orleans. The Pelicans will now inherit the $1.5M non-guaranteed contract of the point guard. Waiving Troy Williams will cost New Orleans $34,183.

The Bulls’ offseason overhaul couldn’t have come at a better time, as Zach LaVine is on the final year of his contract with an extension yet to be signed. But if it were up to LaVine himself, he’s reportedly all-in on staying in the Windy City. That’s according to ESPN Chicago radio analyst David Kaplan, who’s heard from sources that the All-Star doesn’t want to go anywhere. Via ESPN 1000 FM: “He has told people that I know: ‘Hey man, if they want me here, I’m not going anywhere. I’m building this thing. I’m the first guy in the door. I wanna be part of this.’”
Is KAT’s trade value at all impacted by missing the playoffs yet again? If a Simmons deal can’t get done, would you think about trading him now, considering the likelihood that you may need to next offseason? — @JWeAnd1 Definitely no interest in trading him now. Towns will have plenty of value for the foreseeable future, barring a big injury. This is a big season. I think there will be more clarity, positive or negative, when 2021-22 concludes. Then the Wolves can make a real decision on how best to move forward. But Towns remains a focal point right now. That’s not changing anytime soon.
Morey will be in a similar position to Thibs in that rival executives will try to back him into a corner and wait for things to get really uncomfortable with Simmons, thereby driving down the asking price. But Morey is much more experienced in front office work than was Thibodeau, a coach to his core who had not yet started his third season as the lead decision-maker. Those around the league believe that if there is any executive able to stomach the circus that is sure to descend upon Philly, to block out the noise that comes with this kind of drama, it’s Morey.
Ben Simmons trade buzz has been one of the offseason’s hottest storylines, but president of basketball operations Daryl Morey and the 76ers have yet to pull the trigger in a deal involving the 25-year-old three-time All-Star. Will the Aussie wear the 76ers’ red, white and blue to start the season? By a wide margin, our panel’s vote projects Simmons to remain in Philly — at least until the season tips off on Oct. 19. 1. Philadelphia 76ers: 45%
Despite the on-paper match, ESPN’s NBA insider Zach Lowe took to his podcast to say there’s a slim chance of that actually happening due to the Clippers’ lack of interest in Russell Westbrook when he was available: “The Clippers were never interested in Russell Westbrook. They were a rumored Russell Westbrook trade in a few places whenever that happened. They were never interested. That was never a real thing. I think they value their optionality too much.” Lowe ultimately concluded, “I just don’t see it,” because, like Westbrook, Wall is over 30 and has a massive contract — $44 million due this season and a player option the following season for over $47 million.
The Philadelphia 76ers earn the top spot for Team Turmoil, as our experts predict which teams will be surrounded by the most drama this season. While the Ben Simmons saga lingers in Philly, the Lakers could share in the dramatics, as head coach Frank Vogel will have to incorporate former MVP Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony along with five former Laker alums. 1. Philadelphia 76ers: 61 points (55.0% first-place votes)
