Fredette will not be re-signed to another 10-day contract by the Knicks, Ian Begley of ESPN reports. Fredette appeared in just two games for the Knicks during his last 10-day contact, scoring seven total points and accruing no other offensive or defensive stats in 3 minutes per game through both games. Fredette shot rather well (1-1 FG, 1-1 3PT, 4-5 FT) in his extremely limited time with the Knicks. Though his sample size might not be enough for another NBA team to sign him right away, his efficient performance probably bodes well for him down the line. Expect Fredette to most likely return to the D-League in the immediate future.
Fredette is not expected to see much of a role with the Knicks after signing a 10-day deal Monday, the New York Post reports. While Fredette, a former college standout at BYU and a New York native, is still a relatively big name, he hasn't established himself as a productive player at the NBA level, and Knicks coach Kurt Rambis has been openly apathetic about the team's decision to sign him. "A lot of that [decision to sign him] comes from management, too," Rambis said Monday night. Fredette saw action in his first game with the Knicks on Monday but was limited to less than two minutes at the end of the fourth quarter with the result well in hand. If Rambis' attitude is any indication, that's likely the role Fredette will continue to hold for the duration of his 10-day contract. "He's not going to displace someone who's played all year and has worked hard in practice," Rambis said. "He's got to be keyed in to where everyone's supposed to be. I'm not sure he's there yet."
Fredette has been signed to a 10-day contract with the Knicks, Ian Begley of ESPN New York reports. Fredette averaged 22.3 points, 4.8 assists, and 1.8 steals in 28 contests with the D-League Westchester Knicks. The former BYU star has been struggling to keep his NBA career afloat although he was selected 10th overall in the 2011 NBA draft. Since then, Fredette hasn't had much success as he was recently waived by both the Pelicans and Spurs and wasn't much of an offensive threat during his time in Chicago and Sacramento. Expect Fredette to play a limited role off the bench for New York.
Fredette is expected to sign with the Knicks, Ian Begley of ESPN New York reports. While nothing is official yet, the Knicks have an open roster spot and plan to use it to add some depth in the backcourt. The former BYU star is currently averaging 22.3 points, 4.8 assists and 1.8 steals per game in 28 outings in the NBA D-League this season, and he was named the MVP of the D-League All-Star Game. Fredette likely won't see the floor often in the beginning of his stint with New York, but he does add some offensive firepower in a backcourt that is lacking scoring capabilities.
Fredette was waived by the Pelicans. After being waived by the Spurs in late October, the Pelicans signed Jimmer in early November. Fredette played a total of four games for New Orleans and averaged 0.5 points, 0.3 assists, and 0.3 steals with 3.3 minutes per contest. It seems difficult for the shooting guard to find a team in the NBA considering he has been on the Kings, Bulls, and Pelicans since he was drafted into the league in 2011.
