Knicks Sign Jimmer Fredette To 10-Day Deal

MONDAY, 9:59am: The signing is official, the Knicks announced (on Twitter). The contract will cover five games, against the Raptors, Pacers, Magic, Heat and Trail Blazers.

SUNDAY 9:04am: Fredette confirmed that he will likely be signing a 10-day contract with Knicks as soon as Monday, Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports relays (Twitter link).

FRIDAY, 1:48pm: The Knicks plan to sign Jimmer Fredette, reports Ian Begley of (Twitter link). It’ll be a 10-day contract, according to USA Today’s Sam Amick (on Twitter). The former 10th overall pick has spent much of the season with New York’s D-League affiliate, and this past weekend he won the MVP award in the D-League All-Star Game. The Knicks have an open roster spot, so they don’t have to make a corresponding move.

Fredette is averaging 22.3 points in 36.2 minutes per game across 28 regular season D-League appearances this season. He’s regained his vaunted outside shooting touch, nailing 40.4% of his 3-pointers. That’s much better than the 9 for 49 clip he’s produced at the NBA level in his limited playing time over the past two seasons. Still, his most profound struggles have come on defense, and his shortcomings on that end reportedly played a key role in New York’s decision to sign Thanasis Antetokounmpo instead of Fredette earlier this season.

The Pelicans had Fredette on their roster for a brief time in November, when he reprised the role of little-used reserve that he played last year with New Orleans. He was with the Spurs in the preseason this past fall on a partially guaranteed deal, but he didn’t make the opening night roster, a signal of how mightily the former BYU star has struggled to translate his college success to the pro level.

Fredette, who turns 27 this coming Thursday, will make close to $60K on the 10-day deal, an amount that exceeds his D-League salary for the entire season. New York will pay close to $56K, the equivalent of the cost of a prorated minimum-salary 10-day contract for a two-year veteran. The NBA picks up the rest.

    In the words of Brian Cashman “It’s like making a trade!”

    Okay Jimmer, or should I say “Jimsanity” its already trademarked. I love my Knickerbockers

  5. Jimsanity…?

  6. lets just hope he gets some playing time see what he can offer in the big city. I know d league is completely different but the guy has been ballin down there. that’s defense better be on point if he wants to stick around

    • D Hansen

      Just watch his games…
      his defense is
      NO WORSE THAN any other player in the league
      to not play a
      white religious guy in a league
      dominated by attention obsessed,
      non-white jumpers
      politically correct coaches, GMs and sports writers.

      • He is a fairly bad defender, though. At least in the NBA. His career DRtg is 113 and he has a negative defensive BPM. He also has negative DWS. His offense his a little overrated too… This guy is a little bit of a bust.

    He read the book.

    I’m finally glad Jimmer is getting a opportunity like Galloway got last season ! I think the knicks is a perfect fit for his game all he has to do is pass the ball and catch and shoot ! Something grant and Calderon have not done consistently enough ! His defense has always been below average but it is about team defense is it not ….

    Hope NY will give the kid so time on the court! Hopefully he will get in a couple of good practice’s before getting playing time. There’s know doubt that JF can score in buckets. ( Remember what he did to NYK when played at MSG?

    Chuck…re: “Still, his most profound struggles have come on defense, and his shortcomings on that end reportedly played a key role in New York’s decision to sign Thanasis Antetokounmpo instead of Fredette earlier this season.”


    watch a couple games at a minimum,
    observe his 2-3 steals per game,
    5+ assists,
    5+ rebounds
    ALL FROM A GUARD position.


    • Found: Jimmer’s mom

    • Kaboosh

      Steals don’t equal defense, lol

    He is probably the best shooter on the team. So logically he probably won’t play….Knick logic of course! Jackson and the other top notch organization heads need to get off their butts and make more moves and change more players!

    • Who would you suggest they get? They’re a rebuilding team so trading the first round picks they actually own isn’t plausible. Their players also have little value as Melo and Porzingas are the only players with real value, and Porzingas is untouchable (which he should be) and Melo’s no trade clause can prevent any deal. After those two, the only value guys are Afflalo and Lopez, but they’re not bringing back a superstar. The other complication is that the Knicks run the triangle which, like most other systems, is very player specific. You wouldn’t be able to plug a guy like Rondo at the point because the triangle needs a point guard who can shoot. The Knicks definetly should be looking to change the roster at all times, but they’re in no position to do so based on their limited assets.
