Finally and officially, it’s “Jimmer-Time.”

After dominating the NBA D-League with the Westchester Knicks (22.3 points, 4.8 assists per game in 28 games), Jimmer Fredette has been signed by the New York Knicks to a 10-day contract, via Ian Begley of ESPN New York.

We reaffirm the words finally and officially due to how poorly the Knicks point guard situation has been in recent times.


At 34-year old Jose Calderon couldn’t guard your grandmother and all signs point to Kurt Rambis cutting down on Jerian Grant‘s minutes even more.

The news comes down just days after Fredette had this to say, via Marc Berman of the New York Post:

I feel I’ve definitely proven I can still play and provide something for a team out there. I’ve shown that. And I’m definitely confident if I do get an opportunity, I’ll be able to produce. The D-League has helped me to get better and develop as a basketball player. I hope there’ll be a team that takes notice and gives me a chance.

Jimmer hasn’t played in the NBA since last November when he was waived by the New Orleans Pelicans. He played just 13 minutes over four appearances.

It should be interesting to see what Rambis does with the point guard spot tonight in Brooklyn.
