NBA Rumors: Jimmer Fredette wanted New York Knicks to sign him


Jimmer Fredette got more attention on the open market than some thought he would, but he apparently didn’t get attention from a team he wished had signed him. The New York Knicks were rumored to be interested in Fredette, but we learned this weekend that no conversations between the two sides took place.

According to Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News, Fredette was hoping that the Knicks signed him, but isn’t completely disappointed that it didn’t happen.

Playing for the Knicks “would’ve been a lot of fun,” said Jimmer Fredette, but the Glens Falls product was passed over by his hometown squad.

Instead, the Knicks inked Shannon Brown and Earl Clark to 10-day contracts, while Fredette signed with the Bulls

Fredette seems to be in a better situation with the Chicago Bulls than he would have been with the Knicks. Still, he wanted to play for his hometown team, a dream any kid has, but it may work out in the end that he ends up in New York this offseason anyways as the Knicks try to rebuild their team.
