Jimmer Fredette

  1. Winderman: Why Fisher, Fredette, 11 other players get named in NBA suit

    Aug 2, 2011, 8:12 PM EDT

    Jimmer Fredette

    They are, for now, the Lockout 13, the 13 players selected by the NBA to be listed as defendants in the class action complaint for declaratory relief filed Tuesday by the league with the United States District Court Southern District of New York. But why those 13? Because of union status. And proximity to the…

  2. Tyreke Evans wants his role defined in Sacramento

    Jul 31, 2011, 10:29 AM EDT

    Paul Westphal, Tyreke Evans

    This is another problem that can in part be chalked up to the lockout. Tyreke Evans remains the guy that will make the King’s offense go next year — he’s finally healthy again — and now he’s got an interesting potential backcourt mate in just drafted Jimmer Fredette. Except, Evans and Fredette basically play the same…

  3. Isaiah Thomas’ journey made into documentary

    Jul 26, 2011, 10:38 AM EDT

    Washington v North Carolina

    Isaiah Thomas was selected No. 60 — the very last pick, Mr. Irrelevant — in the NBA draft. He fell that far because there are questions — he’s small for an NBA point guard (5’10”) and is not and explosive athlete at a position where the NBA is loaded with amazing athletes. That said, he…

  4. Video: Jimmer Fredette has NBA range on his shot

    Jul 20, 2011, 12:39 PM EDT

    Gonzaga v Brigham Young

    There remain plenty of questions about how Jimmer Fredette’s game will translate to the NBA level. What was never in question was if he could shoot. He has range. As he showed at his Jimmer Camp, he has half court range. Not that coach Westphal wants him shooting from half court. First, not an efficient…

  5. Fredette sees similarities between himself, Tim Tebow

    Jul 15, 2011, 3:49 PM EDT

    Gonzaga v Brigham Young

    Is Jimmer Fredette the Tim Tebow of the NBA? Interesting question. Both were huge college stars with questions about how their games would translate to the next level. Both have a religious aspect to their popularity. Both are locked out right now. Tebow and Fredette also both are at the American Century Championships this weekend,…

  6. Today’s NBA or Europe roundup — Jimmer’s staying

    Jul 15, 2011, 2:23 PM EDT

    Seems like every day one or more NBA players say they are open to the idea of playing overseas during the NBA lockout. While we have our doubts about how many will actually go (even if the lockout drags into the season), here’s a roundup of who is saying and doing what in the last…

  7. Video: Jimmer Fredette’s brother raps

    As you may have heard by now, the NBA has decided that it will indeed lock out its players once the current collective bargaining agreement expires at 12:01 a.m. on July 1. You may also have heard about just how many aspects of league business will be affected by this lockout decision — basically, all…

  8. Derrick Williams gamblers favorite to be Rookie of Year

    Jun 27, 2011, 3:22 PM EDT

    2011 NBA Draft

    Kyrie Irving was the consensus No. 1 pick because of position and potential, but Derrick Williams — who comes into the league ready to score right away — might have a better rookie season. Which is why the bookmakers at Bodog.com made him the favorite to be the Rookie of the Year: Derrick Williams 9/2…

  9. Jimmer fever in Sacramento might help bring new arena

    Jun 27, 2011, 2:56 PM EDT

    jimmer-kings

    Jimmer Fredette, the most talked about player in this year’s NBA draft, was selected No. 10 overall by the Sacramento Kings on Thursday. 30 minutes later, the Kings had a splash page with his likeness up ready to sell tickets on their website. Within another 30 minutes, Jimmer was trending worldwide on Twitter and was…

  10. Kings to make a play for Aaron Brooks?

    Jun 26, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    aaron-brooks-suns-qo

    One of the big questions after the Kings’ draft-day moves was “Who is going to get the ball to all these guys?” They traded for John Salmons (21% usage)  to go with Marcus Thornton (25% usage), and Tyreke Evans (25 percent usage), then drafted Jimmer Fredette, who’s not a playmaker and who’s biggest contribution is…

  11. Sacramento is very excited for the young man who John Salmons will be stealing shots from

    Fredette stands with NBA Commissioner Stern after being selected by the Bucks as the 10th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft in Newark

    I’m starting to feel like Jimmer Fredette is the NBA equivalent of “Snakes on a Plane.” You either get it and think it’s completely awesome, or you don’t, and think it’s completely stupid. Sacramento Kings fans? Well, they’re much like the Alamo Drafthouse Theater in Austin where I saw the opening of “Snakes on a…

  12. NBA Draft day trade wrap-up… because we all got confused

    Jun 24, 2011, 11:34 AM EDT

    Fredette stands with NBA Commissioner Stern after being selected by the Bucks as the 10th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft in Newark

    There was a point while putting up PBT’s pick-by-pick updates through the draft that I thought every pick on the board started with “He was selected for Team X as part of a trade…” To help sort it all out, here is a breakdown of all the draft day trades. • Bobcats, Bucks, Kings big…

  13. Suns’ GM cites toughness, intangibles as reasons for drafting Markieff Morris

    Jun 24, 2011, 10:27 AM EDT

    markieff-morris-suns

    The Phoenix Suns selected Markieff Morris with the 13th overall pick in Thursday’s NBA draft, and by all accounts, he was the player they wanted at that spot. While the team had interest in players like Tristan Thompson and Jimmer Fredette, they weren’t likely to be available by the time the Suns were on the…

  14. Amick: Teams expect Kings to take Jimmer with the #10 pick

    Jun 23, 2011, 5:05 PM EDT

    BYU v Kansas State

    More stuff from Sports Illustrated’s Sam Amick, who’s been on fire today: Rival teams now expect the Kings to take Jimmer Fredette at No. 10. Taking Fredette would have some benefits for the Kings. He would help space the floor for Tyreke Evans and DeMarcus Cousins, both of whom are nearly unstoppable when they operate…

  15. Odds on the NBA Draft… if you’re a betting man

    Jun 20, 2011, 8:01 PM EDT

    Gonzaga v Brigham Young

    Gambling, the thing that drives horse racing and the NFL. (What, you don’t think fantasy leagues and weekly pools help the NFL’s popularity?) If you’re more an NBA guy, how about betting on the NBA Draft? The fine folks at Bodog sent over their odds on the NBA draft, and there are some interesting lines…

  16. Report: Knicks trying to trade up to get Jimmer Fredette

    Jun 20, 2011, 2:41 PM EDT

    Texas Christian University v Brigham Young University

    Jimmer Fredette and how he fits in the NBA divides scouts and fans, but there is one thing almost all agree on — he’s a better fit in a wide-open offensive system where he would have more of a green light. For example, Mike D’Antoni’s system with the New York Knicks. Which explains why ESPN’s…

  17. Jimmer Fredette will go in the lottery… but will he succeed?

    Jun 20, 2011, 8:46 AM EDT

    Gonzaga v Brigham Young

    General managers came out of the NBA Draft Combine saying Jimmer Fredette was brilliant in the interviews. Then he has gone into a series of workouts for teams and impressed by holding his own against other top point guards in the draft. He’s tried his best to answer the many questions about how his game…

  18. Charlotte Bobcats not brave enough (read: too smart) to draft Jimmer Fredette

    Jun 19, 2011, 5:00 PM EDT

    Gonzaga v Brigham Young

    If Jimmer Fredette’s name drops on down to the No.9 spot in Thursdays draft, it can just keep on sliding, the Bobcats want no part of it. From the Charlotte Observer: The team has shuttled about two dozen players through Charlotte for workouts. Fredette has not been among them and isn’t on the schedule for…

  19. NBA Draft “green room” invite list reaches 15

    Jun 18, 2011, 4:29 PM EDT

    nba-draft-green-room

    If you’ve seen the NBA Draft, then you know how this works. The top prospects that the league feels are likely to be lottery selections, and even a few who may be chosen shortly thereafter, are invited to spend the evening in a special “green room” area with friends and family before making the walk…

  20. Projecting Jimmer Fredette, with numbers

    Jun 17, 2011, 9:00 PM EDT

    Gonzaga v Brigham Young

    Jimmer Fredette was a great college player and something of a folk hero during his time at BYU, but nobody can really seem to agree on what he’ll do in the NBA. Will he be the next Mark Price? The next Steph Curry? The next B.J. Armstrong? Or the next Adam Morrison? It’s hard to…

  21. Ironically, Brandon Knight says he wants Kyrie Irving

    Jun 17, 2011, 12:47 PM EDT

    Brandon Knight Kentucky

    Brandon Knight has been avoiding going head-to-head in workouts against the other top guards in the run-up to next week’s NBA draft. If you want to see how he looks against Kemba Walker, pull out the take of the Kentucky against UConn Final Four matchup, because you will not be seeing it in a workout.…

  22. Jimmer Fredette has great workout in Utah

    Jun 15, 2011, 7:55 PM EDT

    Jimmer Fredette

    Former BYU sensation and current draft prospect Jimmer Fredette recently had a draft workout with his hometown Utah Jazz, and all indications are that it went great. Brian T. Smith of the Salt Lake Tribune has the report: The Jimmer Fredette Circus arrived Wednesday in Salt Lake City. The show was packed; the scene was…

  23. Character matters, but let’s not go too far, draft personnel.

    Jun 11, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Brandon Knight Kentucky

    Look, I’m no friend to the college game. 30% shooting, sloppy ball-handling, perimeter-pass-perimeter-pass-perimeter-pass-contested-jumper ball is not my forte (even if that sounds a lot like the Finals… zing!). I think that just because you look like a great player in college means squat at the next level. The NBA is simply that much more competitive,…

  24. PBT Thursday morning one liners

    Jun 2, 2011, 11:39 AM EDT

    Texas Christian University v Brigham Young University

    The Knicks are taking a long look at BYU star Jimmer Fredette in a workout Thursday. He can score and would be a good fit in an up-and-down system like the Knicks run. Here is Jimmer talking about Jimmer, and how he thinks he can defend at the NBA level. Scouts are not sold on…

  25. Jazz “seriously thinking” about drafting Jimmer Fredette

    May 26, 2011, 9:31 PM EDT

    Texas Christian University v Brigham Young University

    You think it’s all about the basketball, what happens on the court. It’s not, basketball is a business and the Utah Jazz may be caught a little in the middle of it when it comes to the NBA draft and Jimmer Fredette. The Jazz have the No. 3 and No. 12 pick and there are…
