Bucks waive Christian Wood, sign Tim FrazierThe Milwaukee Bucks made a pair of moves in the last 24 hours, waiving forward Christian Wood yesterday, then signing guard Tim Frazier today.

Frazier had been playing for the Pelicans this season, and started 17 of his 47 games for them. Overall for New Orleans, the 28-year-old averaged 5.0 points, 4.4 assists and 2.9 rebounds in 19.3 minutes per outing. The team waived him on February 28.

The Bucks were already familiar with Frazier, as he played in four preseason games for them this year. Last season in the NBA, Fraizer played for the Wizards. Overall, his NBA career averages are 5.1 points, 4.1 assists and 2.4 rebounds in 233 games.

He will wear No. 12 with the Bucks.

Wood spent far more time in the G League this season than on NBA court for the Bucks. But he opened eyes with his G League play, and put up big stats: 29.3 points, 14.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 2.1 blocks per outing. Other NBA teams will likely take a look at him.

Through yesterday's games, the Bucks are an NBA-best 52-18 this season. They host the Lakers tonight.
