Jimmer Fredette is averaging just 4.3 minutes per game in his four appearances with the Chicago Bulls, but he thinks the opportunity with Tom Thibodeau's team will be a good proving ground with his career at a crossroads.
“I really like the way that they play,” Fredette said. “They play hard and they don’t have great outside shooting as a team, and that’s something I feel is a strength of mine and I can help them in that area. They play great team defense, and I feel I fit in very well with these guys and this organization.”
Fredette insists he's an improved player since coming into the NBA as a lottery pick in 2011.
“It happens to a lot guys in the NBA,” Fredette said. “Not everyone comes in and is a superstar right away or gets the right role right away. You’ve got to find the right fit, find the right team on that journey, and I hope that it happens here.”
Fredette will be an unrestricted free agent in the offseason.
