Former BYU standout Jimmer Fredette has agreed to a new deal to remain with the Shanghai Sharks, a source told ESPN.

The 28-year-old New York native was drafted 10th overall in the 2011 NBA draft and has played for the Sacramento Kings, Chicago Bulls, New Orleans Pelicans and New York Knicks. He last played in the NBA in the 2015-16 season, appearing in two games for the Knicks.

Fredette has been playing for the Sharks of the Chinese Basketball Association since 2016. He made waves last season by scoring 73 points in a double-overtime loss for Shanghai and was named the regular-season international MVP while averaging more than 37 points per game.

ESPN’s Coral Lu contributed to this report.
