Former BYU standout Jimmer Fredette will sign a one-year deal with the New Orleans Pelicans, according to multiple media reports.

ESPN reporter Marc Stein was first to report the signing, adding that Fredette will receive the NBA league minimum in the one-year deal. The league minimum for a three-year veteran in the 2014-15 season is a little more than $980,000, according to Real GM Basketball.

NOLA.com reporter John Reid also tweeted out late Thursday night confirming the Pelicans had signed Fredette, as well as re-signed forward Darius Miller.

Fredette, 25, is entering his fourth year in the league. He averaged just 5.6 points last season and has averaged 6.9 points in his career.

The former first-round pick of the Sacramento Kings had his contract bought out by the Kings on Feb. 27. He signed with the Chicago Bulls in March, where he ended the 2013-14 season.
