SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Denver Nuggets announced the addition of former BYU star Jimmer Fredette to their summer league squad.

They also added Davon Reed.

Fredette spent the last few seasons with the Shanghai Sharks in the Chinese Basketball Association though his future with the Sharks is likely over.

Fredette played six years in the NBA with five different teams. His most recent appearance in the NBA was with the Phoenix Suns in 2018.

Along with the NBA, Fredette also spent one year in the EuroLeague with Panathinaikos from 2019-20. Fredette’s one year with Panathinaikos was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

That’s where he then made a return back to China to play for the Sharks, a team that gave him the nickname, “Jimo Dashen.”  In Chinese, Jimo Dashen means “Lonely Master.”

This past season with the Sharks, Fredette appeared in 47 games and averaged 26.9 points per game while shooting 53.8% from the field and 39.8% from the three-point line.
