The older brother of Jimmer Fredette told the Salt Lake Tribune that BYU's star guard will declare for the NBA draft after the season, but will not hire and agent and strongly consider returning for his senior season.
Here's what T.J. Fredette, an aspiring rapper, had to say to the paper:
T.J. said Jimmer will definitely put his name into the NBA Draft this spring (just as Jonathan Tavernari and Lee Cummard did after their junior years) so he can go through workouts for teams, etc.
“If there is not something real concrete on the table, he will pull out and come back for his senior year,” T.J. Fredette said. “So that is probably what is going to happen. But he will keep his options open, just in case.”
Fredette has a 49-point game on his highlight reel this season and leads the Mountain West Conference in scoring with 20.7 points per game despite battling various illnesses throughout the season.
He's got the conference tournament to get healthy and concentrate on for next week and said last month that he wouldn't worry about the NBA decision until after the season.
