Jimmer Fredette was waived by the New Orleans 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.
The Pelicans have used their hardship exemption to sign Jimmer Fredette , Steve Popper of The Record reports.
The Pelicans are dealing with a glut of early-season injuries, so they've been granted a temporary extra roster spot, which they will use on Fredette. The former BYU star is yet to find a home in the NBA, spending time with the Kings, Bulls and Pelicans since entering the league in 2011. Fredette was with the Spurs throughout training camp and most of the preseason, but he was waived in late-October prior to the final roster deadline. The 10th overall pick in the 2011 draft, Fredette will likely play only a minor role for New Orleans, but he's capable of playing both backcourt spots.
Once-promising guard Jimmer Fredette was waived by the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday.
Fredette has struggled to keep his NBA career afloat after originally being taken by the Bucks with the 10th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. Since then he's had stops in Sacramento, Chicago, and New Orleans with little success. He still has a chance to land elsewhere in the league before the new season begins, but his four-year track record doesn't bode well for future success.
After sustaining an ankle injury during Monday’s loss over the Celtics,
Holiday has been ruled out of Wednesday’s game at Detroit, but there is no timetable on his return. His next chance to play will be Friday at Philadelphia.
"We think it's day to day, but we're not going to put a timetable on Jrue," Pelicans coach Monty Williams said.
The Pelicans are 4 1/2-point underdogs to the Pistons.
