It’s about to be Jimmer time in New York City. News has come out that the New York Knicks plan to sign Jimmer Fredette of the Westchester Knicks (NBA D-League).

This is a signing that won’t really hurt nor improve the Knicks roster. Jimmer Fredette, though, has been tearing up the developmental league ever since his stepped foot into it. It’s not surprising since the competition is comparable to what he was able to decipher against in college. In 36 minutes of play, Fredette has been averaging 22.7 points while shooting 40% from three.
His days in the NBA, though, haven’t been as successful.
His career numbers have only gone down since his rookie season, so maybe this signing to New York can help bring back his career. Fredette has been known to be someone who can knock down a three point shot when you need him to. The Knicks could definitely us some more help from long range as the Knicks are 5th worst in the league in 3pt% at 33.6 % per game.
Hopefully we get to see more of these soon!
