by September 01, 2011

Kemba Walker will join The Jimmer in a pair of charity games taking place in Utah later this month. Reports the Salt Lake Tribune: “Walker was confirmed Wednesday to participate in two exhibition games hosted by Fredette. Walker, a rookie guard and former Connecticut standout, was selected by the Charlotte Bobcats with the ninth overall pick during the 2011 NBA Draft. Fredette was taken No. 10 by the Sacramento Kings. ‘I have always been a big fan and have a lot of respect for Kemba,’ Fredette said in a press release. ‘We had the chance to work out together before the draft and have become friends.’ The charity games will be held Sept. 21 (Salt Lake City) and 22 (Provo). Other participating players will be announced during the coming weeks.”
