Apr 10, 2017 1:04 PM

Jimmer Fredette received multiple 10-day contract offers when he finished his season in China.

Fredette instead decided to stay home with his wife and their new daughter.

Shanghai would like to sign Fredette for the 17-18 season though they would likely have to improve on the $1.1 million salary after taxes he made this season. 

Fredette is also on a three-year endorsement deal from a Chinese sneaker company for $345,000 and another $300,000 in bonuses.
