Jimmer Fredette pursuing to be part of 3X3 USA campaign to 2024 Paris Olympics

The former 10th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft by Sacramento Kings reveals that he is pursuing to be part of USA 3X3 Basketball in order to book the first qualification in 2024 Paris Olympics.

In a recent interview with a local news outlet in his hometown, Fredette revealed that he’s in talks to potentially joining Team USA ahead of the 2024 Paris Olympics. “I am doing some 3-on-3 basketball. Team USA asked me to come and see if it’s something I may be interested in, maybe looking to qualify for an Olympic run in the 2024 Olympics,” he emphasized. “It’s been fun.”

The former BYU established scorer revealed in The Post-Star  that he received numerous offers to play “all over the world,” but his plan is to be home till the holidays, and then decide on the more sensible options – an offer that may be a bit short and doesn’t keep him away for too long.

“Hopefully everyone will be prepared for the 2024 Olympics in Paris Because that’s what I’m working for. Have everyone thinking about that on their radar.”

Jimmer Fredette had a memorable and legendary career in college. In his four years at BYU, he brokes insane amount of records and became a national rising star. Although his career in the NBA did not pan out well, he only spent six years in the league. He re-established his image as a phenomenon and a basketball God in China, winning the MVP of the league in 2017. Fredette also landed a roster in Europe, the most recent being the Greek Powerhouse Panathinaikos Athens for one season, averaging 13 points in the Euroleague.

“People still enjoy watching me play basketball and I appreciate it so much,” Fredette said. “I’ve had such a loyal fan base and people have really stuck by my side through the good and the bad and I have appreciated it through my whole career.”
