Jimmer Fredette will have a chance to impress the injury-riddled Golden State Warriors this summer, as the former BYU star will be on the franchise's Summer League team.

The 30-year-old guard, who played in six NBA games for the Phoenix Suns last season, has been added to the Warriors' summer roster.

Golden State's assistant general manager, Larry Harris, announced the news this morning.

Fredette has mostly been playing overseas in China since 2016.

The Warriors will likely be in need of some cheap contributors in the backcourt in 2019-20, with Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant potentially both being on the roster and unable to play.

Fredette, the No. 10 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, has starred overseas in China, averaging 37.6 points a game, earning regular season MVP in 2016-17.

Being on the Summer League roster is far from a guarantee for a regular season spot, though, so Fredette will have to impress to earn a contract.

NBA Summer League begins in early July.
