RENO, Nev. -- Former BYU star Jimmer Fredette said Wednesday that people have been telling him his whole life he's not a good defensive player but he thinks he's on his way to proving them wrong as he works out for a series of NBA teams.The 6-foot-2 point guard, who averaged 28.9 points per game last season and was named The Associated Press player of the year, had his first workout on Tuesday with the Indiana Pacers. He plans another with the New York Knicks on Thursday and future workouts at Sacramento, Utah and Phoenix."I think they all are pretty interested," Fredette said Wednesday."I think they know I can play offense at the level of an NBA-caliber player. The biggest thing they are concerned about is the defensive end and being able to defend NBA point guards," he said. "My goal is to show that I can. I think I did a good job of that (Tuesday). I think I'll do a good job of that the rest of the time."Fredette was speaking to reporters on a teleconference call to promote the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship, which he is scheduled to play in July 15-17 at Lake Tahoe. He said the knock on his defensive play is nothing new.
