Ok now that that's out of the way, good news! Frazier is reportedly headed back to the NBA on a 10-day deal with the New Orleans Pelicans. The news was reported last night by Marc Stein of ESPN and it became official today.

As we know from his prior stint with the Philadelphia 76ers, Frazier's 10-day deal means that he will be with the team for either 10 days or three games, whichever comes second. Once his term is up, the team can sign him to a deal for the rest of the year, bring him back on another 10-day deal, or let him walk.

It's not crazy to think that Frazier gets some reps in Nawlins in which he and Anthony Davis become the modern day John Stockton and Karl Malone and Tim becomes an All-Star and goes to the Hall of Fame and is one of the best point guard in the history of the National Basketball Associa...
