The NBA draft is just a matter of weeks away and one of the wild cards is BYU’s Jimmer Fredette. Where he will land is anyone’s guess, but he’s trying to do all he can to help his case. That includes trying to workout with Kentucky’s Brandon Knight and UConn’s Kemba Walker to prove he can hang with the best of the best.
Former Brigham Young guard Jimmer Fredette is scheduled to work out next Wednesday with the Jazz, and he has every intention of sticking to the date. But Fredette is willing to change his plans to accommodate the schedules of Kemba Walker (Connecticut) and Brandon Knight (Kentucky). And whether the two highly touted 2011 NBA Draft prospects will face off against Fredette in Salt Lake City remains to be seen.
With his draft stock rising, Fredette wants to work out against Walker and Knight to prove that he can compete with the point guards, who are expected to be taken early during the first round.
