This might be his final chance. Lets see if he gets the minutes that Jimmer Nation has been saying is all he needs to prove himself.

OK - now let's hear all you experts (you know who you are - he lit you up with 49) spin this one. Good job Jimmer!!

Burley, ID

Good luck Jimmer, here's one Ute fan who bears you no ill will.

Arlington, VA

Congratulations Jimmer! Here is to hoping that you have a good year in New Orleans that leads to a longer contract there or elsewhere in the NBA.

West Jordan, UT

Go Jimmer! Good luck with the new team!

Vernal, UT

Good for Jimmer, and I personally hope when New Orleans plays the Jazz, Jimmer lights them up for 30 plus.

Syracuse, UT

Doesn't say much for any kind of long term career. A stop-gap, plug a hole for the Pelicans for this year only.

Plano, TX

100% behind this guy. Play or no play, he's conducted himself with class the whole way.

Is that D-league?

Kaysville, UT

Jimmermania continues...a million dollars a year, not a bad gig!

Loomis, CA

Good for Jimmer. Unfortunately he is reunited with Tyreke Evans. The guy would never pass the ball to Jimmer when they were both in Sac. Doesn't matter if you have a shooter if you don't have a passer.

What do you mean "spin this one"? There's no need to spin it - the facts speak for themselves. He just signed a one-year deal at the league minimum for one of the worst teams in the NBA. In other words, a bad NBA team sees him as practice fodder. Who needs to put spin on this?

Morgan, UT

Jimmer has never had a real opportunity in the NBA to show what he can do...the inept Kings did him a great disservice by not giving him a chance with their selfish play. If Jimmer is given a fair chance, he will be resigned or pick up a better contract with another team. Every team needs a shooter.

never break .500
Los Angeles, CA

this is what happens when Ute fans can't get over being dominated like a high school team for 4 years…Jimmer took you guys to the woodshed every game and you just had to accept it. Now you hope he fails and doesn't do well. He's been an NBA player for what? 5 years? so embarrassing.

Jerome, ID

What? ChrisB hasn't commented yet? I am sure I must be in an alternate reality. BYU fans posting on a BYU article first and Jimmer signing yet another contract with an NBA team. Say what you will, Brave Sir Robin, but it was a short week ago that we were assured Jimmer would never sign another contract with any NBA team and he was certainly headed for Europe. This is an NBA contract, league minimum or no (nearly $1 million ain't bad), bad team or no (the Pelicans finished 9 games above the Jazz and ahead of 9 teams in total). Good luck, Jimmer. I hope you prove as many people wrong with your pro career as you did in your college career.

Sir -

Plain to see the 49 point smack down still hurts.

Salt Lake City, UT

When you are wrong, you're wrong. And I was very wrong about Burdette. I projected him out of the Association in three years and signing a contract in Tel Aviv. Instead he just signed a one year contract for the league minimum. Congrats to Jimmer and his nation of fans.

Provo, UT

Ute fans/Jimmer haters were wrong about him having to go to Europe, so now it's all about him playing for the league minimum on a bad team. Not quite the same thing -- if it makes you feel better, New Orleans was once run by France, and they still have the French Quarters down there. That's kinda almost but not even close to right isn't it?


The 6 foot Shawn Bradley of the NBA. Yes he will make a cool million sitting on the bench but what a bust. # 1 draft pick and he will be Dave Rose's assistant in another year. Good for you Jimmer, save your money.

Henry Drummond
San Jose, CA

Monty Williams is a good head coach. I'm sure he'll give Jimmer a chance to prove himself. This could prove to be one of the great comebacks in NBA history. Best of luck.
