Jimmer Looking to Make it Back to NBA (AUDIO)
Glens Falls native Jimmer Fredette has gone down a trying road in his professional basketball career.
Drafted by Milwaukee, traded to Sacramento on draft night, playing with the awful Kings, then with the Bulls, then the Pelicans. Then he was drafted by the Westchester Knicks of the D-League, back with the Pelicans, back to Westchester, to the New York Knicks for 10 days and back to Westchester again.
He won D-League All-Star Game MVP. He averaged more than 20 points a game in Westchester, and now, he wants back in the NBA. Fredette signed a deal with the Denver Nuggets Summer League team a week ago and hopes thats his ticket back to the League.
He joined Rodger Wyland and Brady Farkas today to talk about what this opportunity could bring for him, what he's worked on since we last saw him on the floor, and if he's had a chance to see Glens Falls super sophomore Joe Girard III play in person.
