During his time in the NBA, where he spent parts of 5 seasons with 4 different teams, he averaged 6.0 points on 41 percent shooting.

While at BYU he led the country in scoring and was named the 2011 National Player of the Year.

The Jimmer, during that 2011 year, averaged nearly 29 points, leading the Cougars to a 32-5 record and an appearance in the Sweet 16.

Fredette balled out in Shanghai including a 75-point game in November of 2018.
