NBA Buyout Rumors: New York Knicks had little interest in Jimmer Fredette


When the Sacramento Kings released Jimmer Fredette this past week, there were a few logical teams that likely would have interest in signing the three-year veteran.

One such team would be the New York Knicks, who are in desperate need of a point guard.

Now, Fredette isn’t technically a point guard but it’s not as if the Knicks are overflowing with solid choices.

Regardless, it appears the marriage never had much of a chance anyway as Fredette says there wasn’t much interest from the Knicks:

I asked Fredette if #Knicks showed any interest? “Not too much that I was aware of.” Woodson indicated #Knicks didn’t want to wait.

It’s a little shocking given the lack of options for the Knicks, the fact Jimmer is from the New York area and would have been a media sensation in the Big Apple.

They’ll have another opportunity to bring Jimmer in this Summer as the former BYU star will become a free agent once the Chicago Bulls season comes to an end – that is, assuming they want to.
