NBA Buyout Rumors: Chicago Bulls, Jimmer Fredette agree to deal

After being bought out by the Sacramento Kings, it appears that Jimmer Fredette has chose a new home. According to Sam Amick from USA Today, Fredette has promised the Chicago Bulls that they will be the team he signs with if he clears waivers.

While no contract specifics seem to have been hammered out, the Bulls and Fredette appear to have a deal in place for when the guard clears waivers this weekend.

Per Amick:

Former Sacramento Kings guard Jimmer Fredette has told the Chicago Bulls he will sign with them if he clears waivers, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the private nature of the negotiations.

Jimmer seems to be looking to explode in the right system, which seems odd considering the defensive mindedness the Bulls pride themselves on in Tom Thibodeau’s schemes. Still, without Derrick Rose in the lineup and without a serious offensive outlet, Jimmer could flourish and the Bulls may find the scoring option they covet.
