Sacramento Kings have received trade offers for Jimmer Fredette

After tearing apart the NCAA during his time at BYU, Jimmer Fredette has struggled to find similar success in the NBA.

Many of his issues can be attributed to his undefined role within the Sacramento Kings organization and former head coach Keith Smart, who continually yanked Fredette in and out of the lineup.

Fredette was never put in a proper position to succeed which has fellow NBA teams interested in the third year pro as KSL.com reports the Kings have received offers on the 2011 National Player of the Year, but Sacramento isn’t biting:

“The Kings are not actively shopping Jimmer, but they have had calls and apparently will move him if the deals makes sense,” said Jones.

“The Kings still believe Jimmer has value to teams in the league,” Jones said. As the February trade deadline approaches, that’s when the Kings will likely push harder to move him — hopefully to a team that actually has an idea of how to use him. Then we’ll find out whether or not Jimmer can contribute meaningful minutes for an NBA team.
