Jimmer Fredette quicker than people think?
 
Jimmer Fredette will join 54 prospective draftees this week at the NBA Combine from Wednesday through Friday at the Attack Athletics Facility on the West Side of Chicago. While there, Fredette will surprise people, predicted Taft. The surprise? "I think it will be his athleticism, and they will be very surprised with his quickness and his speed," said Taft two days before he left to participate in athletic training clinics in Helsinki, Iceland, Chicago, Las Vegas and Kansas City.

Taft predicts when Fredette does the three-quarter-court sprint, he will post one of the fastest times, just like he did a year ago at a New York Knicks workout where his time ranked in the top three among prospects. That was after a season of illness and a bout of mononucleosis. This year he's increased his measurables by an average of 3 percent, said Taft. "The agility drills they do, he will be very efficient with it.
