Frazier gives the Pistons depth at point guard, allowing Casey to pair Rose & Jackson

LAS VEGAS – In order to play two point guards at a time, as Dwane Casey is fond of doing, you need a good No. 3 point guard.

Welcome to town, Tim Frazier.

The Pistons had two critical roster needs after their season ended in the playoffs: point guard and small forward. Trading for Tony Snell the night before the June 20 draft – with the added bonus of Milwaukee’s first-round pick thrown in – allowed them to laser focus on point guard in free agency.

To replace Ish Smith and Jose Calderon, the point guards who backed up Reggie Jackson in 2018-19, they added Derrick Rose and Frazier.
