Jimmer Fredette Gets Ready for The Basketball Tournament
The biggest difference in this year's The Basketball Tournament will be Jimmer Fredette's presence. The former Glens Falls and BYU star is no longer a coach of Team Fredette, he's the best player.
With Jimmer on the active roster, Team Fredette has secured a 2 seed for the TBT in July and it just may be the right stage and the right audition he needs to impress NBA people for a path back into the world's best league. Even from draft night for Jimmer in 2011 and his last season on an NBA roster in 2015-'16, the game has changed and to his benefit. Are you telling me Jimmer couldn't thrive off the bench in a system like Mike D'Antonio's in Houston? He couldn't provide an affordable scoring option for the salary cap-strapped Warriors?
With another guaranteed year on his contract with the Shanghai Sharks in the Chinese Basketball Association, Jimmer has options and that's never a bad thing in life.
