(Jimmer) Fredette has spent a significant part of his offseason work trying to improve his mid-range shooting and defensive play.
”I’ve worked on a lot of different things,” Fredette said. ”The pick-and-roll game is real big in the NBA, so I’ve worked on that both offensively and defensively. I think being in Chicago helped me out on defensive schemes being able to get into the right positioning. I think that’s improved my game.”
Pelicans forward Ryan Anderson is already convinced Fredette will be able to make a significant contribution this upcoming season.
