BYU Basketball Star Jimmer Fredette Looking to Return to NBA

After nearly two years playing in the Chinese Basketball Association, former BYU basketball star Jimmer Fredette is hoping to rejoin the NBA—here's how.

Jimmer Fredette, the former BYU star and first-round NBA draft pick, will compete in this year's edition of The Basketball Tournament with one goal in mind -- earn another spot in the NBA.

"I would always love to get another chance in the NBA," Fredette told ESPN.com. "I've gotten better in China and improved every year. ... You hope somebody takes notice."

The Basketball Tournament is a $2 million winner-take-all event that will air on ESPN this summer.
