The Sacramento Kings are in the process of buying out guard Jimmer Fredette (or are they) and if he hits the marker, there is going to undoubtedly be interest fem contending teams in a guy who can be an explosive scorer in the right system.

So far there has been rumored interest from the Denver Nuggets, but it’s hard to say them being interested at the deadline in Jimmer means that they’re interested now, especially after acquiring Aaron Brooks from Houston.Another team that people are linking Jimmer to are the Jazz, but that doesn’t appear to be happening either.

Jimmer is Mormon, there is a healthy population of Mormons in Salt Lake City. Both of those facts are true but are cancelled out by the ply meaningful information in that whole equation — the Utah Jazz are carrying a league maximum 15 players and literally have no room to sign Jimmer if they wanted him.

While Jimmer heading to the Jazz and back home to Utah where he played his college ball in Provo makes sense on the surface but there’s nothing much more to it than that.

    I think Utah could benefit with Jimmer. When you are a losing team, you still want to sell tickets. Jimmer Fredette would be a ticket seller in Utah at least for a while. In my opinion, they could use another combo guard. And of course, they could use a stellar outside shooter. It’s a no brainer to me. Buy out John Lucas and sign Fredette.
