The Sacramento Kings had high hopes for guard Jimmer Fredette when they made the former BYU Cougars’ star the 10th overall pick of the NBA Draft (via the Milwaukee Bucks).
Those hopes have not come to fruition. Fredette has struggled in his young career and this season, he can barely get off the bench. Fredette has appeared in 40 of the Kings’ 53 games and is playing just 11.5 minutes per game. He’s averaging 6.0 points, 1.5 assists and 1.1 rebounds per game.
According to sources of Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, the Kings are discussing a Fredette trade with several teams.
Starting point guard Isaiah Thomas is out after an MRI showed strained ligaments in his shooting wrist. Wojnarowski reports that “further complications could lead to him missing time,” but one of Wojnarowski’s sources called it ”a short-term nuisance.”
Terry, who has really struggled in Brooklyn, could replace Fredette with a veteran presence and give the Kings a reliable option to step in while Thomas’ wrist heals.
