Will Jazz grab Jimmer?

 

Jimmer Fredette has his own reality show, a song that’s amassed nearly a million YouTube views and a legion of followers. He also has a legion of detractors, making him possibly the most polarizing player in this year’s NBA draft. Caught in the middle are the Utah Jazz, who with two first-round picks could be in position to pull the trigger at No. 12 and draft the BYU shooter turned national sensation. Jazz general manager Kevin O’Connor and Jazz vice president of player personnel Walt Perrin get to make the final decision Thursday on draft night. “He showed us the ability we always have seen in him – to knock down shots,” Perrin said. “He’s a good passer. We’ve just got to see how he can be incorporated into our defense if we pick him.” – AP
