The university of Florida graduate averaged 9.9 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 25.7 minutes per game, shooting 44.3% from the field, 43.2% from beyond-the-arc during his collegiate career spanning three seasons. He guided Florida to the final four with an impressive performance, averaging 12.4 points per game and shooting 118 3-pointers in 2014.
6-foot-4 Frazier recently played six games for the reigning NBA champions Golden State Warriors in the summer league in Las Vegas. The 21-year-old showcased a decent performance averaging 4.5 points and 2.7 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 15.8 minutes per game.
