Jimmer Fredette struggled during his rookie season and didn’t seem to be a good fit on the Sacramento Kings. Fellow rookie Isaiah Thomas outplayed him, and then the Kings further complicated Fredette’s role by signing Aaron Brooks in the offseason. If the Kings decide to move the former No. 10 overall draft pick, it sounds like the Thunder would be interested in discussing a trade.
FOX Sports NBA reporter Sam Amico tweeted the following about the Thunder’s interest in Jimmer:
Speaking of Kings, Jimmer Fredette would love to go someplace where someone other than just DeMarcus Cousins will pass him the ball. Thunder would love to pry Fredette away from Kings as replacement for Derek Fisher. Kevin Durant is a Jimmer fan.
It’s interesting to note that some teams may still ike Fredette even though he had a disappointing rookie season. Maybe the Thunder feel the Kings misused him, or that he would fit in well with their franchise in a specific role.
If the Kings don’t trade Fredette but elect to let him go as a free agent after the year (they have a team option), then keep your eye on the Thunder possibly trying to sign him.
