New Orleans, LA, United States (4E Sports) – Guard Jimmer Fredette joined the New Orleans Pelicans on a one-year deal, with the team’ hoping he’ll replace three-point gunner Anthony Morrow.
NOLA.com’s John Reid confirmed through twitter that the 25-year-old guard is now a member of the Pelicans.
Fredette averaged 5.6 points while only playing under 11 minutes per game last season, splitting it with the Sacramento Kings and Chicago Bulls.
Despite having limited attempts with the Bulls, Fredette shot 47 percent from the floor and 47.6 percent beyond the arc.
Fredette should contribute instant offense and solid numbers from long range.
His steady three-point shooting is what the Pelicans need to replace Morrow.
Morrow, who chipped in 8.4 points a game last season, signed a deal with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
