Jimmer Fredette's quest to find a home in the NBA may be over. After starring with the NBA Developmental League the Westchester Knicks. Along with shining brightest in the D-League All-Star game last weekend. It appears that the New York Knicks have seen enough and are ready to add Fredette to their lineup.
As reported by Ian Begley on Twitter:
The Knicks plan to sign Jimmer Fredette with their open roster spot, league sources tell ESPN. Story coming.— Ian Begley (@IanBegley) February 19, 2016
The New York Knicks had an empty roster space. Maybe Fredette can add some perimeter pop as New York tries to close in their four game gap to a playoff spot.
Jimmer's home state is New York. His favorite team growing up was the New York Knicks. So, this signing must be particularly special for the former National Player of the Year from BYU.
Jimmer has experience lighting up Madison Square Garden in his pro career when he splashed 24 points helping the Kings defeat the Knicks in 2014.
Best of luck to Jimmer in his new opportunity!
