A 2007 graduate of Glens Falls High School, Fredette played four seasons of college basketball for BYU. In his senior college season, Fredette was the national player of the year before becoming the No. 10 overall pick in the 2011 NBA draft.

Besides the Suns, Fredette has played for the NBA’s Sacramento Kings, New York Knicks, Chicago Bulls and New Orleans Pelicans.
