PROVO, Utah – BYU basketball legend and former NBA first round pick Jimmer Fredette announced he will play in The Basketball Tournament in July.

Jimmer Fredette will headline “The Money Team” in The Basketball Tournament and will be joined by a pair of former Jazzmen.

Fredette told ESPN that he will play in TBT this summer after he took some time off to be with his family after welcoming their third child.

“I’m going to get out and play again and have fun,” Fredette told ESPN. “My brother [general manager TJ Fredette] is part of getting the team together. It should be a lot of fun to get back out on the court again and play competitive basketball.”

Fredette has played in TBT before, leading Team Fredette to the quarterfinals in 2018. He had some great performances, including 41 points in a game in 2018. The former BYU star had Team Fredette play in Salt Lake City but did not play for the team after signing with a team in Greece.

Joining Fredette on The Money Team is former Jazzmen Trevor Booker and Jeremy Evans. Also, Anders Jacobson, Brandon Crawford, Charles Jenkins, Corey Davis Jr., Cyril Langevine, Dejan Kravic, Jordan Crawford, Jackie Carmichael, Peyton Aldridge, Terrico White and Xavier Munford. EJ Gallup will be the head coach of the team.

The Money Team is backed by boxing legend Floyd Mayweather. They are the No. 1 seed in the Dayton Region and will face No. 8 seed Athletics Miami on Sunday, July 24 at 11:00 AM MT.

The 64-team field was announced on Wednesday. The winning team will receive $1 million. TBT in 2022 features 71 players with NBA experience and 29 college alumni teams. For the first time ever, games will be played outdoors with one of the sites being hosted at historic Rucker Park in New York City. Other regional sites include Omaha, Nebraska; Albuquerque, New Mexico; Wichita, Kansas; Syracuse, New York; Charleston, West Virginia; Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio.
