Former Knicks guard Jimmer Fredette is back in the NBA.
Fredette signed a two-year deal with the Phoenix Suns, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.
The 30-year-old Fredette last played in the NBA in the 2015-16 season, appearing in two games with the Knicks and spending most of that season with their G League affiliate in Westchester.
Since, he has spent three years with the Shanghai Sharks in China, once scoring 73 points in a double-overtime game. In 45 games this season, Fredette has averaged 36 points, 5.6 rebounds and 5.3 assists.
A former first-round pick, Fredette was drafted 10th overall by the Milwaukee Bucks in 2011 after averaging 28.9 points per game as a senior with BYU, but debuted with the Sacramento Kings, scoring 7.6 points per game in 61 games as a rookie.
In his five-year NBA career, Fredette has averaged 6.8 points in 235 games with four teams: the Kings, Pelicans, Bulls and Knicks.
When Fredette played with G League Westchester, he averaged 21.1 points, 4.4 rebounds and 5.0 assists in 40 games.
