Fredette, who will be 27 next week, was cut by the San Antonio Spurs in preseason and played a few games for the Pelicans before opting to go in the D-League while turning down offers to play overseas.
Jimmer averaged 22.6 points and 4.8 assists in 28 games played with the Westchester Knicks and was named MVP of the D-League All Star Game last week.
