Spurs Sign Jimmer Fredette


After suiting up for three teams over his first four NBA seasons, Jimmer Fredette is headed to San Antonio after the Spurs locked up the former BYU standout with a contract.

Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski added that Fredette is signing a “training camp deal.”

After the Sacramento Kings selected Fredette No. 10 overall in the 2011 draft, he went on to play two-and-a-half seasons in California’s capital before the team waived him in February 2014. The Chicago Bulls subsequently signed him in March 2014 to a rest-of-the-season deal, and he went on to sign a one-year deal with the New Orleans Pelicans last summer.

In 50 appearances for the Pelicans, Fredette averaged just 3.6 points while shooting a career-worst 38.0 percent from the field and 18.8 percent from three.

Fredette can shoot the pumpkin, and with the stack Spurs already heavy download he should go a lot of open looks as teams try to double the big men.
