News: Fredette is finalizing a deal to sign with the Spurs, Marc Stein of ESPN reports.
Impact: Fredette's future in the NBA was looking bleak after he once again failed to consistently be part of a rotation in his fourth NBA season, as he appeared in just 50 games for the Pelicans in 2014-15 and played just 10 minutes per game. However, it looks as if the Spurs are going to give the sharp-shooter an opportunity. There is a chance this pans out for the organization given that they lost some depth in their backcourt last season with both Cory Joseph and Marco Belinelli signing elsewhere, but the former BYU star will still likely have to prove his worth in training camp. Should Fredette's time with the team extend beyond preseason, he would be able to provide a shooting stroke off the bench that the team currently feels they lack.
