  • Jimmer Fredette: Headed to EuroLeague

    Fredette agreed to a two-year contract with Panathinaikos, Varlas Nikos of Eurohoops.net reports.

    Rumors of Fredette potentially heading overseas started swirling as soon as he left the Warriors's summer league team last week, and now it has been confirmed that the sharp shooter is headed for the EuroLeague. His new home should be a fairly large step up in competition for Fredette after he was dominant with the Shanghai Sharks in China.

  • Warriors' Jimmer Fredette: Leaves summer league

  • Jimmer Fredette: To play for Warriors at summer league

    Fredette will play for the Warriors' summer league team, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    News of the decision surfaced over the weekend, but Fredette can now officially join the Warriors' entry after the Suns declined his team option for the 2019-20 season. The former lottery pick has found success overseas since flaming out of the NBA in 2016, but he failed to make much of an impact in six appearances for the Suns at the end of last season. In total, Fredette has appeared in 241 NBA games for five teams across six seasons.

  • Suns' Jimmer Fredette: Supplies 10 points off second unit

    Fredette delivered 10 points (5-11 FG, 0-4 3Pt), one rebound, one assist and two steals across 22 minutes in the Suns' 118-97 loss to the Jazz on Wednesday.

    Fredette's minutes have evenly alternated between single and double digits in the four games he's spent with the Jazz thus far. The 30-year-old guard's scoring total Wednesday was his highest over that span, as were his minutes. However, given that Fredette hadn't seen more than 14 minutes in the three games prior, it's possible his allotment of playing time Wednesday proves to be an outlier.

  • Suns' Jimmer Fredette: Scores six points in loss

    Fredette finished with six points (1-10 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), one rebound, one assist and one steal over 14 minutes in the Suns' loss to the Jazz on Monday.

    Fredette saw his minutes grow from four in Saturday's debut to 14 in Monday's loss, as he played just his second game in three seasons. The former BYU star received a standing ovation from Utah fans when he checked into the game, but all the love from the crowd couldn't help him muster more than six points on a terrible shooting night. It's unlikely he gets too much playing time down the stretch, but if Fredette can manage 15-20 minutes per contest, he could be a dirt cheap daily play with some three-point upside.

  • Suns' Jimmer Fredette: Signing with Phoenix

    Fredette agreed to a two-year deal with the Suns on Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    The deal is guaranteed for the rest of this season, and then Fredette will have a team option for next season. Fredette is still awaiting clearance from China, where he has been for the last three seasons, so it's unclear exactly how soon he will be able to join the Suns. Fredette was last in the NBA back in 2015-16, when he appeared in six games for the Pelicans and Knicks but averaged just 1.5 points per game.

  • Suns' Jimmer Fredette: Available Saturday

    Fredette will be available to make his Suns debut Saturday against the Kings, Kevin Zimmerman of 98.7 Arizona Sports reports.

    According to Zimmerman, coach Igor Kokoskov is "apprehensive about pushing [Fredette] to play too much too soon." Either way, we should see Fredette make his first NBA appearance since the 2015-16 campaign. The 30-year-old will look to make the most of his new opportunity with the hopes of staying in the NBA next season and beyond.
