The agreement guarantees Jimmer to play on the active roster for the remainder of the season with a team option next year.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Fredette has agreed to a two-year contract with the Phoenix Suns. In three seasons he's averaged just over 36 points per game and become a popular player. The Suns now hold a 17 - 55 record making them the second-worst record behind the Knicks at 14 - 58.

A 2007 graduate of Glens Falls High School, Fredette played four seasons of college basketball for BYU. He also had stints with the Bulls, Pelicans and Knicks before heading overseas.

Andrei Zhestkov, 27, stuffed the stowaway - a sleeping orangutan - in his luggage, officials at Bali Airport in Indonesia said. He had deliberately fed the animal allergy pills mixed with milk so it would lose consciousness for up to three hours.

Fredette was named MVP of the CBA last season.

In 235 career National Basketball Association appearances, Fredette averaged six points, 1.4 assists, and one rebound in 13.4 minutes per game in the National Basketball Association.

The Suns will miss the playoffs for the ninth consecutive season. Fredette is a six points per game scorer in his career, shooting 38.1% from three.

After being selected with the No. 10 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft by the Milwaukee Bucks and then immediately traded to the Sacramento Kings, Fredette never stuck in the league.
