Tim Frazier and Portland Trail Blazers Celebrate His NBA D-League Awards

Tim Frazier and the Blazers celebrated his NBA D-League awards from this past campaign on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, the NBA D-League announced that Tim Frazier had won both its Most Valuable Player and Rookie of the Year awards for the 2014-15 campaign.

And while the Maine Red Claws have been eliminated from playoff contention, the young floor general isn't exactly sitting home. Instead, he's since gone on to strut his stuff in the NBA with the Portland Trail Blazers.

And though the Blazers themselves are in the midst of an intense playoff run, the team still took time to honor Frazier and his accomplishments on the minor league level. Head Coach Terry Stotts presented the youngster with both awards following practice on Tuesday. Take a look at the pictures below for more.

It's very cool that the Blazers and Frazier's new teammates can appreciate what these minor league awards mean. Earlier this month, the former Red Claw was also presented with the RidiculousUpside.com M.V.P. award as well. He had this to say on the honor:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Thanks to <a href="https://twitter.com/RidicUpside">@RidicUpside</a> for the award. Everyone in <a href="https://twitter.com/maineredclaws">@maineredclaws</a> land knows that&#39;s a team award!!!</p>&mdash; Tim Frazier (@psufraz23) <a href="https://twitter.com/psufraz23/status/585170508515270656">April 6, 2015</a></blockquote>
