Strengths: Fredette is a very good shooter with ridiculous range on his shot. Put up crazy points in the college game and his ability to shoot the ball set up his ability to get in the lane and get to the basket. Has a very quick release on his shot and is great coming off of picks to catch and shoot the ball. Has nice weight and bulk on his frame weighing close to 200 pounds. Has a variety of hesitation and crossover moves he uses to get space to get his shot off.
Weaknesses: Isn’t big enough to play SG in the NBA and isn’t a pure PG either. Looked quick against lesser opposition, but when playing against bigger quicker defenders, the type he will face on a nightly basis in the NBA, he had problems. Had a high number of turnovers this past season, he tends to make bad decisions with the ball when caught in the lane with no where to go. He was brutal on defense in the mid level conference BYU played in, so expect him to be a defensive liability in the NBA.
