Former college basketball sensation and lottery pick Jimmer Fredette is looking for another shot at the NBA.

"I want to have another opportunity in the NBA because there is some unfinished business for me there," Fredette said, via HoopsHype. "After this season is over, I want another NBA chance."

Fredette is 6-foot-2 averaged 29 points a game during his senior season at BYU in 2011, becoming a human highlight reel of perimeter shooting along the way.

Things didn't go nearly as well in the NBA. Fredette was selected by the Milwaukee Bucks with the No. 10 overall pick, then immediately traded to the Sacramento Kings.

Unsuccessful with the New Orleans Pelicans and San Antonio Spurs followed.

Today, Fredette is lighting it up in China. He recently scored 75 points in a game, breaking his previous mark of 73. The 29-year-old is now hoping for one last shot with the right NBA club.

"This time, I’ll succeed," Fredette said. "I feel really good about how I am playing. I know that if I get a chance, I will take advantage of it and be successful and help a team win."
