Opening the overseas chapter of his career, Tim Frazier moves his talents to AEK and the Basketball Champions League.

Frazier, 31, has played nearly exclusively in the NBA throughout his professional career. Besides logging 304 games played, including 15 appearances in the Playoffs, between the Cleveland Cavaliers, Orlando Magic, Memphis Grizzlies, Detroit Pistons, New Orleans Pelicans, Milwaukee Bucks, Washington Wizards, Portland Trail Blazers, and Philadelphia 76ers since 2014, he additionally settled in multiple G League stints at the Maine Red Claws until 2016. In 2021-22, he appeared in 12 contests tallying 3.3 points, 2.8 assists, 1.2 rebounds, 0.3 steals, and 0.1 blocks per game with the Magic and Cavs.

Jumping into the BCL, the Penn State alumnus signed a one-year contract with AEK, the team announced Wednesday. Previous summer signings for the Queen extend to Alexander Madsen, Cameron McGriff, Akil Mitchell, Nikos Persidis, Janis Strelnieks, and Kenny Williams. Also, Panagiotis Filippakos, Dimitris Flionis, Antonis Koniaris, Dimitris Mavroeidis, and Andreas Petropoulos are returning for the team guided by head coach Ilias Kantzouris.

AEK was drawn in Group B of the 2022-23 Champions League Regular Season. Pinar Karsiyaka, Telekom Baskets Bonn, and UnaHotels Reggio Emilia shape the four-team field, producing one direct entrant into the Round of 16 and the middle-placed teams in a best-of-three Play-In round for a spot in the Round of 16. The fourth-placed team will be eliminated. The opening round is scheduled to be held during the first week of October with the double-legged round-robin schedule of the group lasting until late December.
