According to ESPN.com’s Myron Medcalf, Fredette said: “I would always love to get another chance in the NBA. I’ve gotten better in China and improved every year. … You hope somebody takes notice.”
Fredette has played for the Chinese Basketball Association’s Shanghai Sharks for the past two seasons.
The 29-year-old veteran averaged 37.6 points per game for the Sharks in 2016-17, and he was named the CBA International MVP.
Fredette followed that up by averaging 36.9 points per game in 2017-18. He is a two-time All-Star in the league.
Oh my would the Cleveland Cavaliers gladly trade JR Smith to Shanghai for Jimmer Fredette. Jokes aside, I could see Jimmer return to the NBA as a knock down shooter. He could fit into a good team and system in the role Kyle Korver is playing for the Cavaliers right now. I don’t think we will see Jimmer attempt the creator role in the NBA ever again. Jimmer is putting up Jordan numbers in China right now — now I know it’s China, but the league would be a better place with Jimmer knocking down playoff threes.
Hot take: the only good thing Kevin Durant has ever done was saying Jimmer is the greatest scorer in the world. pic.twitter.com/NZgFB7Jfqb
