On January 26, 2011 I sat in the fourth row of the Marriott Center in Provo, UT for what would end up being one of the biggest victories in BYU basketball history. I watched in awe as Jimmer Fredette, in the midst of his historic senior season, led No. 9 BYU to a huge upset win over Kawhi Leonard and the No. 4 San Diego State Aztecs.

Though the game was close, Fredette was in control, finishing with a casual 43 points on 14-24 shooting and ultimately outlasting Leonard's 22 point and 15 rebound effort. Jimmer sealed the deal with a pair of late threes, but as thousands of screaming fans relished in the win afterwards I couldn't help but wonder if Fredette's game could actually translate to the NBA.

Five years later, I'm still wondering the same thing as I watch Fredette try and salvage his career after not being able to find any continuity or a team that is willing to take him on for good. I've followed him as he bounced around from Sacramento to Chicago to New Orleans to the D-League to New York for 10 days and now to the Denver Nuggets Summer League team where so far he has played a huge role on the team.

In three Summer League games Fredette has impressed, averaging 16 points per game on 43.8 percent shooting from deep. Like during his scorching collegiate campaign, Jimmermania of old has been rekindled with every shot he takes, and with that comes the inevitable question of whether or not Denver should take on the former NCAA superstar.

From a basketball standpoint, you know what you're going to get out of Fredette. He's a godly shooter who can also make some scoring plays, but other than that not much can be expected from him on the court. The Nuggets of course have been a terrible shooting team in recent years and remedying this issue has been the focal point of this offseason. By that measure he would be most welcome.
