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.
