FMP guard Trent Frazier is among the prime targets of Zalgiris Kaunas to fill the void of injured Keenan Evans, according to Eurohoops sources. Evans, the Lithuanian side’s leading scorer, suffered a season-ending Achilles tendon rupture Thursday (5/1) early in a EuroLeague win of his team over Fenerbahce Beko.

Frazier has a two-year contract with FMP, so Zalgiris will have to enter negotiations with the Serbian club in order to acquire the player in mid-season.

In his debut professional season, Frazier, 24, is having a standout campaign in ABA League with FMP. The American guard is averaging 20.8 points, 6.3 assists, and 2.2 rebounds in 29.8 minutes over 13 games while shooting 5.19 percent from the field to lead his team through a 10-3 run.

On Tuesday (3/10), Frazier scored a career-high 45 points in a win over Mornar Bar.
