ESPN/ABC sets hoop team

Scott, Frazier get host nods, Hardaway will be analyst

NEW YORK — Two of ESPN’s up-and-coming on-air talents, Stuart Scott and Kevin Frazier, have landed the studio-host jobs on the network’s National Basketball Assn. game coverage for 2002-03.

ESPN/ABC Sports won the rights to NBA games earlier this year — in a shared exclusive with TNT — when NBC bowed out of the bidding after a dozen years of sharing the games with TNT and its sister network TBS.

Scott will host the Wednesday-night NBA games in the studio, and Frazier will do studio chores for Friday-night doubleheaders. The network will use as Friday analyst former NBA star Tim Hardaway.

ESPN2 will produce a new two-hour weekly studio program called “NBA Fast Break Tuesday,” beginning Nov. 5 at 9 p.m. Frazier will host the show, joined by former NBA players Sean Elliott and Tim Legler as analysts.
