Draft Prospect: Jimmer Fredette

6,2
Combo Guard
BYU

Jimmer Fredette has been a great college player but how will his skills transfer to the pro game?  There is no doubt that Jimmer can shoot the ball but his lack of shooting guard size and less than elite athleticism will hinder his pro game.  If he can learn to distribute the ball and become a true point guard the sky is the limit but as a shooting guard his effectiveness will be limited.



Upside = Stephen Curry/Steve Nash
Likely = Ben Gordan/ Kirk Hinrich
Downside = JJ Redick
