Say it ain’t so Jimmer.
Former NCAA sensation and overseas scoring star Jimmer Fredette has quit the Golden State Warriors summer league team after two games.
The San Jose Mercury-News reported his leaving Wednesday afternoon before Warriors summer league coach Aaron Miles confirmed the news with reporters.
The coach confirmed Jimmer was out.
“He was great with us, that veteran leadership he provided for us,” Miles said. “We appreciated what he did for us.
“We wish him well. I’m not sure exactly what’s going on with him. He’s still got a lot of basketball left in him. I’m not sure what the plan is for him.”

The Mercury-News reports that Fredette left the team to minimize injury risk as he plans to ponder overseas options.
Fredette, a 6-2 guard, starred at BYU and earned the Naismith and Wooden Awards as college basketball’s National Player of the Year in 2011. He never really could dominate at the NBA level, and I think he knows his NBA dream is over.
Fredette has decided he has better options overseas.
