More Rumors in this Storyline
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.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Detroit is waiving guard Tim Frazier, league source tells ESPN.
Chris Haynes: One year deal at approximately $2 million.
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.

Speaking at a SporticoLive event on Tuesday, Roberts said that while players share in the passion for the game, and in the responsibility of growing the NBA’s multi-billion-dollar enterprise, “what we don’t share is having an equity stake in the teams.” “We’ve got a collective bargaining agreement that says we can’t [own stakes], and hopefully down the road we’ll make some changes,” she said. “The players will be the last to suggest that we want to see the game’s value, or teams’ values, in any way diminish, but it sure would be nice to be able to go to the party.”
The league is also making changes to make it easier to attract minority investors. Last year it greenlit Dyal Homecourt to raise money for a fund that could invest in multiple teams. Now it’s discussing an expansion of that program, where other institutional investors could gain the same right. “If [private equity investment] happens,” Roberts said, “I will have players complain bitterly that, ‘Wow, we helped create this wealth, we helped create this value, and some private equity guy can come in and I can’t?’”
One suggestion: Instead of giving equity to players themselves, give it to the union. That wouldn’t necessarily result in checks to individual athletes, but it would give the NBPA more resources to support players and their communities. Another suggestion: a structure similar to employee stock options, which are common in other some businesses. “There’s a way, in other words, for players to enjoy equity in these teams that may be non-traditional,” Roberts said. “It may be a little different from the way we do it on the private side, but I still think there’s an opportunity for us to talk about, think about and ultimately resolve what I believe to be an inequity in the system.”
Anthony Slater: Draymond Green: “We got to find an identity as a team. Sometimes we move the ball, sometimes we don’t. Sometimes we defend, sometimes we don’t… Are we gonna be a ball movement team or an iso team?”
Connor Letourneau: Steve Kerr: “It’s going to take us 20 games to figure out where we want to be with our rotation. We’re at 16 now. … We’ve just had two bad losses in a row. We have to assess everything.”
Wes Goldberg: And with that falling-away corner 3, Steph Curry has moved into sole position of second all-time on the NBA’s 3-pointers list with 2,561. Surpasses Reggie Miller. Behind only Ray Allen. Fittingly, assisted by Draymond Green.
Drew Shiller: -Reggie Miller’s son to Steph Curry: “I have all your jerseys and shorts.” -Reggie Miller to Steph Curry: “I know you’re chasing Ray (Allen). You are an inspiration to so many little ones … thank you so much for what you have done, my friend.”
