It looks like “Jimmer Time” is officially over in Sacramento, as the Kings have started aggressively shopping guard Jimmer Fredette around the NBA. While this should be expected after the team landed Kansas guard Ben McLemore in the 2013 NBA Draft, Fredette’s fans will no doubt begin to pop up and defend him. The bottom line on the 24-year-old Fredette is that in two seasons in the NBA he’s shown himself to be more likely to make an impact in Europe than America. He’s a standing shooter who doesn’t create his own shot, play defense or add anything as a rebounder. In 69 games this past season he averaged 7.2 points, 1.3 assists and 1.0 rebounds in 14.0 minutes per contest. Fredette also doesn’t add much inside the three-point line on offense. He hit 41.7 percent of his shots from beyond the arc, but made just 42.1 percent of his field goals overall. Fredette is listed as a point guard but he’s not great with the ball, and at 6-2 and 195 pounds he’s woefully undersized to be a scoring guard in the NBA. The Kings apparently need to move Fredette to make room to bring in Monta Ellis, who they are reportedly close to a deal with. Because he can shoot someone will offer the Kings something for him. The Oklahoma City Thunder would probably be a fit, after the departure of Kevin Martin. Second-year guard Jeremy Lamb will be expected to step up in Martin’s place, but the Thunder could always use another shooter. The Golden State Warriors lost Jarrett Jack to the Cleveland Cavaliers, so they could use depth at the guard spot, as could the Utah Jazz. The Cavs are actually another team looking for guard depth and they have talked to the Kings about a deal. At this point it’s a pretty safe bet that the Kings have given up on Fredette, showing that he was definitely not worth the No. 10 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft.
