Jimmer Fredette is a rookie guard for the Sacramento Kings. Fredette was originally drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks with the tenth pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, before being traded to the Kings as part of a three-way deal.
Fredette became an icon at BYU, as he averaged a whopping 28.9 points per game during his senior year. His great play led the Cougars to the Sweet 16 in last year’s NCAA Tournament, before losing to Florida in overtime. It was the farthest BYU had advanced in March Madness since 1981.
Fredette has had an up and down rookie season to this point, but he is starting to find his groove. Above is iFollowSports.com original video of Fredette interacting with fans and warming up on the court at the Target Center in Minneapolis, prior to Tuesday night’s game against the Timberwolves. Fredette would go on to have one of his better games as a pro, scoring 13 points off the bench, which helped get the Kings back into the game before eventually losing to Minnesota 86-84.
