Kings Don’t Exercise Fredette’s Option
The highlight of Jimmer Fredette's NBA career, to this point, was the night he was drafted 10th overall by the Sacramento Kings in the 2011 NBA Draft.
Since then, it's been a nightmare. That's only fitting because on Halloween the Kings informed Fredette that his days in Sacramento are numbered.
The team has opted not to exercise the 2014-15 team option that would have paid Fredette $3.1 million next season. While frustrating at the moment, this could pay off in the end.
When given the minutes, the Glens Falls native contributed. Despite averaging just 16 minutes a game his first two seasons in the NBA, Fredette averaged 7.4 ppg.
Whether it's this season or next he'll finally get to play somewhere else and hopefully it will be with a winner because that's what he was at BYU.
I'm just glad that for the first time in his NBA career he'll get the opportunity to know what it feels like to control his own destiny.
