Kings Planning to Trade Jimmer Fredette?
Though there appears to be nothing to the latest rumors, it’s unlikely (Jimmer) Fredette will get much playing time this coming season – if he’s still with the Kings.
The Kings acquired Greivis Vasquez to be their starting point guard, likely pushing incumbent Isaiah Thomas to a backup role. Look for rookie Ray McCallum, who impressed coaches this summer in Las Vegas, to be ahead of Fredette at the point, too.
Fredette has not proven he will be in the NBA beyond his rookie contract – he’s in the final guaranteed year – and if he’s back with the Kings, he’ll probably be the ninth or 10th man on the roster.
Look for the Kings to try to deal Fredette before the February trade deadline, if not sooner, because it’s time for Fredette – and Kings fans – to move on.
