Former Brigham Young standouts Jackson Emery and Jimmer Fredette are teaming up again.

Emery will participate in Fredette's upcoming exhibition games, joining a roster that includes Kemba Walker, Kawhi Leonard and Nolan Smith. The contests are scheduled Sept. 21 at the Maverik Center in Salt Lake City and Sept. 22 at the Marriott Center in Provo.

"Jackson's addition to these exhibition games will make this event all the more special for me and the BYU fans in the crowd," Fredette said Wednesday in a press release. "Jackson was a great teammate and I'm really excited that his one and only on court performance following his great career at BYU will be during our event in front of the fans who have so passionately supported us over the years."

Emery will make his only scheduled post-BYU basketball appearance during the exhibition showcase. He chose not to pursue a professional career, despite earning a pre-NBA draft workout with the Jazz.

A four-year letterman at BYU, Emery concluded his career as the Mountain West Conference's all-time leader in career steals. Emery was also an offensive threat for BYU, scoring in double figures 26 times and adding four 20-point games during 2011.

Tickets for the exhibitions are on sale at the venues' box offices, websites and by phone.
