The legend of Jimmer Fredette was hatched in Glens Falls, N.Y., where family members predicted NBA greatness not long after he sank his first 3-pointer — at age 5.

He developed into the national player of the year at BYU and was taken 10th overall in the 2011 draft. But the Kings bought out his contract less than three years later, and Fredette will join the Bulls as their 13th player.

Fredette officially cleared waivers Saturday and has agreed to sign with the Bulls for a prorated portion of the veteran’s minimum contract, sources said. Fredette is shooting a career-best 49.3 percent from 3-point range and is expected to attend Sunday's matinee against the Knicks.
