Guard Jimmer Fredette, who was waived by the Sacramento Kings, the only team he has known in his three-year NBA career, made his debut for the Chicago Bulls in their 109-90 victory over the New York Knicks Sunday afternoon.
Fredette scored two points on one-of-two shooting and grabbed two rebounds in just over three minutes of play.
Fredette, who has been nowhere near the postseason, is excited to join a team like the Bulls.
“I see how this team plays and they play hard every single night,” Fredette told Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago. “And they play for each other and they play the right way and that’s kind of something that I was looking for, to come into a team that I could fit in and play the way that I wanted to and play hard every single night and be a part of a team. So I’m excited to be here and I can’t wait to start and get out there and play and see how things go. But I’m really excited to be here.”
Fredette is averaging 5.9 points, 1.5 assists and 1.1 rebounds per game this season.
