Jimmer Fredette and Jackson Emery will be teammates again, but this time they'll have an even more loaded roster when they take the court Thursday at Brigham Young University's Marriott Center.

The teams were announced Tuesday for Jimmer's All-Stars exhibition, a game between teams of unsigned rookies, including Fredette and former San Diego State star Kawhi Leonard. Fredette was drafted by Sacramento in June but has not been able to sign a contract due to the NBA lockout. He will lead one team, while Leonard, drafted by the San Antonio Spurs, will captain another.

Through a draft system, Fredette will be joined by former Cougar Emery, Denver draft pick Kenneth Faried, Portland's Nolan Smith, Washington pick Chris Singleton, the Kings' Tyler Honeycutt, Golden State's Charles Jenkins and undrafted rookie Chris Wright, who played collegiately at Dayton.

Leonard's team includes Kemba Walker, who led UConn to an NCAA title in April, Charlotte first-round pick Bismack Biyombo, Milwaukee's Tobias Harris, Minnesota's Malcolm Lee, Vernon Macklin of the Pistons, former Washington guard Isaiah Thoma and undrafted Indiana State product Jake Kelly.

Fredette's team will be coached by BYU's Dave Rose, while San Diego State's Steve Fisher will coach the team led by his former star, Leonard.
