According to a report from USA Today’s Sam Amick, soon-to-be free agent and BYU legend Jimmer Fredette intends to sign with the Chicago Bulls if and when he clears waivers.
Signing Jimmer potentially could complicate the Bulls’ efforts to stay out of the luxury tax, but the Bulls reportedly are willing to risk it. This, ostensibly, means saying farewell to Jarvis Varnado after his 10-day contract expired yesterday.
Jimmer’s shooting 49 percent from downtown this season, so he figures to aid a team that arguably boasts rookie Tony Snell as its third-best outside shooter. And if nothing else, watching him gun from outside should be entertaining.
Let the JimmerMania commence, Chicago!
