Jimmer Fredette Rumors: Thunder not likely to be an option


The Oklahoma City Thunder are looking at their options this offseason to see where they want to go and how they can get over the championship hump that has stumped them for the last few years. They either can’t win in the postseason to get to the NBA Finals or they can’t win in the NBA Finals.

One thing that the Thunder need is shooting and that’s why they went out and padded their rotation by signing Sebastian Telfair on Thursday morning. While this is a signing that makes a lot of sense for the Thunder depth, it seems to eliminate Jimmer Fredette as a possibility for the Thunder.

Jimmer has had a rough go of things in the NBA so far as he didn’t catch on with the Sacramento Kings and failed to do much of anything with the Chicago Bulls. He’s likely to go over and play in Greece this upcoming season which may end up being the best option for him.

Thanks to the Telfair signing, he can cross a third team off his list when it comes to possible NBA homes and that’s not counting the teams he doesn’t know aren’t interested in him at all.

    what a shame for the Thunder and KD…Fredette would make the Thunder impossible to defend. He is also a Team first guy, Genius Basketball IQ , Great passer, Gets to the hoop with ease, creates his own shot and he is simply the Best Shooter on the Planet. AND he continually improves.

      I couldn’t agree more. I wonder if Jimmer is still putting in an insane amount of work. He would have to if he has any hope of getting better. Without meaningful time in games it would be amazing if he still has the skills needed to play.

    Fredette would have been a far superior option for the Thunder than Telfair… Telfair has been a grade A loser wherever he has gone.
