Jimmer Fredette is headed back to the NBA.

According to Shams Charania, the former BYU star signed a two-year deal with the Phoenix Suns after playing in China. The second year of the deal is a team option.

This is awesome for Fredette. He was arguably the most exciting player to watch play college basketball in the past decade.

The man was just a scoring machine. He never saw a shot from the floor that he didn’t love and wasn’t eager to pull the trigger on. That’s my kind of guard. He would jack up shots from anywhere. (RELATED: Remember Basketball Star Jimmer Fredette? He Just Pulled Off An Incredible Accomplishment)

His initial run at the NBA didn’t go very well, but he’s done a nice job of dominating in China and puling up cash while doing it.

Don’t sleep on the talent of the CBA. There are a lot of former NBA guys over there, and the league is no joke.

Clearly, the Suns thought Fredette did enough to earn himself another shot in the NBA. I hope he does well. He seems like a really good dude, he’s fun to watch and those are the kinds of guys you always want to cheer for.
