BYU’s Jimmer Fredette Re-Signs In China

Former BYU star and NBA player Jimmer Fredette has been named the Chinese Basketball Association’s Player of the Year.

 

The 6-2 guard led the CBA in scoring, averaging a whopping 37.6 points, along with 8.2 rebounds and 4.2 assists for the Shanghai Sharks.

 

Fredette, who guided Shanghai to the league’s second best record this season at 30-8, poured in an unbelievable 73 points in a double overtime win over Zhejiang in February.

 

He was the CBA’s Player of the Month in December, when he averaged 39.6 points, 10.1 rebounds, and 4.3 assists in 11 games.

 

Fredette shot a blistering 58 percent from the field, and a red-hot 40 percent from three over that span.

 

Fredette, drafted 10th overall by the Bucks in 2011 before being traded to the Kings, was a scoring machine at BYU, averaging an NCAA Div I-leading 28.9 points as a senior in 2010-2011.

 

However, Fredette has struggled to match his college success in the NBA, averaging 6 points and 1.4 assists in parts of five NBA seasons with the Kings, Bulls, Pelicans and Knicks.

 

Last season he was in the NBA D-League where he was the NBADL’s ninth leading scorer, averaging 21.1 points and 5 assists for the Westchester Knicks.
