    This is from Arizona Sports 98.7.



    Gambadoro reports the Suns could sign Fredette through the rest of the season. The Suns currently have an open roster spot.

    The 30-year-old guard is currently playing for the Shanghai Sharks of the Chinese Basketball Association. On Tuesday, the Sharks were eliminated from the postseason. Fredette averaged 36.9 points per game for Shanghai, the league’s top mark.

    If he filled Daniel's role, sure.

    He could add some excitement. Fredette has been out of the NBA for a few seasons.

    Maybe Johnson is going to be out for while. The Suns do have an open roster spot.

    I suppose if we cut Daniels this summer, he can fill a roster spot for the vet min. He is a veteran with lots of experience all over the world. The guy can shoot.

    The Suns could never figure out the right way to use Daniels so perhaps you are right.

    You don’t find guys that can score 37 points a game everyday - that is impressive in any league.

    The point is obviously he might be instant offense off the bench.

    The problem is he can't do anything else, especially defend, and he is too slow to get his shot off against NBA competition. I wouldn't expect much. He is taking a roster because they are likely shutting down Johnson and/or Oubre for the season.

    If they are looking at someone from the CBA, they should consider Pierre Jackson. He is averaging 40 ppg, 9 assists, 3.4 to, 6 rb, while shooting 42% from 3. He is also getting 2.3 steals a game. Now understand this is the CBA. But those numbers are all better than Jimmer, and Pierre is younger.

    It looks like Fredette has been talking about a return since November.



    Fredette careers NBA career averages of 6.0 points and 34 percent shooting.


    He said in November he is looking for an NBA return.



    “I want to have another opportunity in the NBA because there is some unfinished business for me there,” Fredette said. “After this season is over, I want another NBA chance.”

    I was waiting for someone to compare him to Mike James.
