Default Jimmer get promise from Jazz

Jimmer At #12? This one may not come as much of a shock, but Jimmer Fredette is believed to have received a commitment from the Utah Jazz at #12 and has started shutting down workouts. Fredette has been in to see the Knicks, the Pacers, the Suns and the Kings all of which raved about his performance. After a stellar workout, the kid from Provo seems to have heard what he wanted to hear to pull out of a planned Houston workout tomorrow and may be finished barring a last minute push from teams in the top ten.

It is easy to get caught up in the concept of a "promise" but in this case there could be a lot of substance to the rumor, mainly because Jimmer is a huge fan favorite. He solves a real and pressing need in Utah and he could become a big part of Utah's future.

So it seems if another team wants Jimmer, they may now have to get on the phone to Golden State and see what the #11 is going to cost, because it looks like Jimmer's floor is now #12.

If true, this is great news for those hoping to see the Raptors select Brandon Knight. It would be highly unlikely that they would select 2 PGs in the lottery.
