NBA Trade Rumors: Sacramento Kings seeking second-round pick in Jimmer Fredette trade


The NBA trade deadline is just hours away and teams are going to going mobile with more and more trade offers as the deadline nears. One team that has been very active, not just at the deadline but all year long, are the Sacramento Kings and they are showing no signs of slowing.

After trading for Derrick Williams and Rudy Gay earlier in the season, the kings acquired Jason Terry and Reggie Evans on Wednesday and ar eloping to swap Jimmer Fredette for what could end up being a second-round draft pick.

The Kings won’t settle unless they have to, and even then they may just hang onto Fredette through the deadline. But if a second-rounder gets the deal done, it’s hard to imagine someone not biting on that deal and adding Fredette for what usually amount to a lost draft pick anyways.

    The Kings aren’t embarrassed by wanting to trade Fredette, a first round draft pick, for a second round draft pick?!? Instead, why don’t they give him some playing time, so he can prove that they made a good first round selection? Worst case, he disappoints them, then nobody second guesses them for wanting to trade him. At present, most fans and observers think the Kings are idiots for not giving Fredette a real chance.
