Fredette Re-Signs with Shanghai Sharks

The Glens Falls graduate announced on Facebook he signed a two-year deal with the Shanghai Sharks.

"I've chose to go back to Shanghai for a two-year contract", the post read. "My family and I are very excited about this opportunity! It was a great home for me past year", Fredette said after finishing the Deseret News 5K race Monday morning in a time of 30:28.

Former BYU guard Jimmer Fredette is heading back to China to suit up for the Shanghai Sharks again, the former BYU guard confirmed Monday morning.

Fredette quickly became a fan favorite in Shanghai, and was nicknamed "Jimo Dashen", which translated roughly means the "Lonely Master". Team Fredette was eliminated in the first round.

After so many years struggling to get a shot in the National Basketball Association - upon being drafted by the Sacramento Kings in 2011, Fredette spent much of his time in the G-League, and only averaged 13.4 minutes in 235 career National Basketball Association games with four teams over five seasons - the former college star has again become revered.

The consensus College Basketball Player of the Year in 2011 while playing for BYU, Fredette played for the Sharks last season and was named the regular-season Most Valuable International Player.
