Report: Sacramento Kings finalizing buyout agreement with Jimmer Fredette

It appears that Jimmer Fredette is finally going to be free.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, the Sacramento Kings are finalizing a buyout agreement with Jimmer Fredette. A buyout would allow Fredette to be placed on waivers, and if he clears, he will become a free agent.

Fredette was the 10th overall pick in the 2011 NBA draft.

There have been whispers of the Kings trading Fredette for the past season and a half, but nothing had materialized as many expected the Kings to simply waive the third-year guard.

Fredette is averaging 5.9 points per game this season and is a career 40 percent shooter from three. Granted, he is only averaging 15 minutes per game in his three-year career. Defense has been the issue with Fredette throughout his young career. He needs to go to a place where it’s stressed, so that he could at least have a chance at picking it up.

Prior to the start of the season, the Kings decided against picking up Fredette’s 2014-15 option.
