Philadelphia gives the former Penn State point guard a second contract.

With the trade of Michael Carter-Williams to the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday, newly acquired Isaiah Canaan was the only true point guard on the Sixers roster. Head coach Brett Brown said the team would make a move to add another ball handler before Friday's game against against Indiana, and the Sixers did just that.

According to a report from Yahoo!'s Marc Spears, the Sixers have opted to bring back Tim Frazier on a second ten-day contract.

Frazier appeared in three games with the Sixers, and started two in Carter-Williams absence. He averaged 5.0 points and 8.7 assists per game, while shooting 22.2% from the floor. Philadelphia initially chose not to renew Frazier's ten-day contract, only because the deal would have started midway through the All-Star break.

While the former Penn State guard didn't exhibit any shooting skills, he did a good job running the offense and setting up his teammates. After Frazier's new ten-day contract expires, the Sixers will either be forced to sign him for the rest of the season, or let him walk.
