Jimmer Fredette in China today, per @Sportando:
Lost 137-136 https://t.co/pSwvJYxB32
English Sportando Pierre Jackson was almost as good and scored 63 points to drive Beijing to profit.
Fredette signed with Shanghai in August 2016 after he could not earn a regular role with New Orleans Pelican and New York Knicks during the NBA season 2015-16.
Fredette’s unbelievable points never translated into NBA but he has had a lot of success in China. He averageed 36.8 points and shot 41.3 percent from three-point range during the 2017-18 CBA season. He continues to be a dynamic painter this season with an average of 34.2 points and shooting 50.2 percent from the field.
