Jimmer Fredette is developing a floater to help him score when he gets to the paint.

"I'm working on making floaters and other things that have to be a part of my game,” Fredette said. “I'm better than a year ago, my skills are better and I'm excited about the season and being part of it."

Fredette said his preparations for his second season are far ahead of a year ago with a minicamp under his belt and knowledge of what he needs to do and what he cannot do.

"Mentally, I'm more prepared," he said.
