SAN ANTONIO — The San Antonio Spurs signed guard Jimmer Fredette.
Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed Wednesday.
The former BYU player spent last season with the New Orleans Pelicans, averaging 3.6 points, 1.4 assists and 10.2 minutes. He has career averages of 6.1 points and 1.4 assists in 229 games in four seasons with Sacramento, Chicago and New Orleans.
As a senior at BYU in 2010-11, he was the NCAA Division I scoring leader with a 28.9 average.
HIBBERT, WILLIAMS, BASS EAGER FOR FRESH STARTS: In El Segundo, Calif., right after Roy Hibbert, Lou Williams and Brandon Bass received their new gold jerseys Wednesday, they all spoke variations on the same theme.
The three veteran NBA players entered the summer looking for a fresh start, and they’re all eager to get it with the Los Angeles Lakers.
They’re also looking forward to playing with Kobe Bryant — after they get a chance to talk to him.
Bass revealed a secret he kept buried during the past four seasons with the Boston Celtics: He was a Lakers fan in college at LSU, partly due to their similar purple-and-gold color schemes.
Bass was a starter for most of his four seasons in Boston, but he is willing to play any role required by Lakers coach Byron Scott, his coach for his first two NBA seasons with the Hornets in New Orleans and Oklahoma City.
