Jimmer Fredette scores 35, wins D-League All-Star Game MVP
Jimmer Fredette of the Westchester Knicks earned MVP honors at Saturday’s D-League All-Star Game in the East’s 128–124 win.
Fredette, who ranks fourth in points per game this season with 22.6, set a D-League All-Star Game record with 35 points on 13-of-19 shooting with six three-pointers, eight assists and six rebounds.
A first-round pick of the Kings in 2011, Fredette fell out of the NBA in 2015 after a brief stint with the New Orleans Pelicans and was taken with the No. 2 pick in the D-League draft by Westchester. He was again picked up by the Pelicans earlier this season, but was cut after just nine days and reacquired by the Knicks.
In addition to his 22.6 points per game, Fredette has averaged 4.8 assists and 4.5 rebounds this season while shooting 48.7% from the field and 42.7% from three.
