Thunder Waive Melvin Frazier Jr.

Shooting guard Melvin Frazier Jr. has been waived by the Thunder, according to the NBA’s official transactions log.

The Thunder signed Frazier earlier this week. Initially drafted by the Magic in the second round of the 2018 draft out of Tulane, Frazier played just 29 games for Orlando over the past two seasons.

Frazier got significantly more run with the Magic’s G League affiliate, the Lakeland Magic. Frazier played 41 games (all starts) for Lakeland, with a competitive slash line of 15.5 PPG/5.8 RPG/1.9 SPG/1.9 APG. The 24-year-old will now look to continue his basketball career beyond Oklahoma City.

Frazier’s brief stint on Oklahoma City’s roster signals that the club may have been looking to secure his G League rights.
