Jimmer To Be Signed By Knicks
It's about time! Glens Falls native Jimmer Fredette is going to be signed by the New York Knicks to fill their vacant roster spot.
Fredette has played this season with the Westchester Knicks of the NBA Developmental League (D-League), where he played well. He was averaging nearly 23 points a game while shooting 49 percent from the floor and 43 percent from three-point range.
He also made the D-League All-Star team where he scored an all-star game record 35 points. He also finished second in the D-League 3-point shootout.
Fredette starred at BYU in college, where he won the Player of the Year award in his senior year. At Glens Falls, he led the Indians to the Class A State final.
The Knicks have a need for a shooter. Jose Calderon is a guy who can shoot well but Jerian Grant isn't much of a shooter yet. The Knicks are looking for answers under interim head coach Kurt Rambis, who takes over for the recently fired Derek Fisher.
