08:09 AM ET 03.16 | He likely has no say, of course, but Jimmer Fredette's opinion is now clear, via his brother T.J. DraftExpress currently predicts Jimmer will go 13th (to the Phoenix Suns) in the 2011 NBA draft, although his stock fluctuates with questions about his size, speed and defense. What isn't a concern is his endorsement potential: One agent said companies are lining up to use his squeaky-clean image and market his electrifying game and trouble-free persona. The ideal NBA landing pad for both brothers -- basketball for Jimmer, music for T.J. -- would be New York. "We want him to go to the Knicks," T.J. said without hesitation. "That's our team." In N.Y., Jimmer could learn under veteran point guard Chauncey Billups, play in coach Mike D'Antoni's up-and-down system and live in a city close to home.

Everyone wants to rock with the best. But that's not how we like it. He needs to go to another team to learn and show he belongs in this league then when he's about to enter his prime we'll snatch him the way we robbed Phoenix and Denver... yes the world is not fair but we found a way to make it work for us... NY baby!

"One agent said companies are lining up to use his squeaky-clean image and market his electrifying game and trouble-free persona."

Then NY isn't the place. That image will get tarnished. Better to choose Oklahoma, or Memphis. No drama going on there.
