Jimmer Fredette filling empty spot with New York Knicks


Former BYU basketball star Jimmer Fredette will be filling the open spots on the New York Knicks, ESPN reported Friday afternoon.

The New York native has been playing with the Knicks’ D-League team, the Westchester Knicks, averaging 22.3 points and 4.8 assists in 28 games. He lit up the D-league with high-scoring games, such as the 37 point game in the video above.

Fredette played with the Sacramento Kings out of college for three years before playing with the Chicago Bulls (2014) and New Orleans Pelicans (2014–15).

After a senior season at BYU that had the nation talking about “Jimmer Range” when discussing 3-point distance, Fredette was named the National Player of the Year in 2011.
