Jimmer update: Is his time with Chicago Bulls coming to an end? ESPN says no

With the recent signing of former Jazzman Ronnie Brewer to the Chicago Bulls lineup, the time for former BYU star Jimmer Fredette may be coming to an end -- or so believes one person in an article written on Monday, April 7.

The sad truth is Jimmer hasn't done much to help in his time in the Windy City since leaving the Sacramento Kings.

15 points total have been scored in seven games by the former college player of the year out of BYU -- and Brewer comes to the Bulls wanting to prove himself.

Like Jimmer, Brewer wants a fresh start in Chicago but his numbers are worse -- averaging less than a point per game in Oklahoma City and Houston the past two years.

Brewer was also waived by the Rockets which doesn't help Jimmer either, because Brewer is already familiar with the Bulls and is a lockdown defender who enjoyed two good years in Chicago.

But, Jimmer still brings to the Bulls what others cannot -- Brewer included -- and that’s three point shooting, according to the latest ESPN Insider.

Rumors of Jimmer’s demise in Chicago are just that, says ESPN, and the Bulls will need the former BYU star’s range during the playoffs.

Even if Jimmer has just played in seven games for the Bulls, the man from BYU still shoots 50 percent from three-point land -- and that’s the one thing Jimmer was brought in for, bar none.
