According to Stein, the Pelicans will use the exception to sign guard Tim Frazier to a 10-day contract.
Frazier, who went undrafted out of Pennsylvania State in 2014, played 35 games with the Portland Trail Blazers this season. He averaged 1.5 points on 33.3 percent shooting in 7.8 minutes per game before being waived in February.
He's since played eight games with the D-League's Maine Red Claws, thriving against the diminished competition. He's averaged a near triple-double of 15 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 9.6 assists, while shooting 55.7 percent from the field and 40 percent from beyond the arc.
The Red Claws have won seven of the eight games he's played.
