Now that Jimmer Fredette finally wiggled free from the bench-burying hands of the Sacramento Kings, he had the opportunity to pick the new home of his liking. A new start.
And it appears that he’ll get that new start as a member of the Chicago Bulls, as USA Today’s Sam Amick reported late Friday night.
Former Sacramento Kings guard Jimmer Fredette has told the Chicago Bulls he will sign with them if he clears waivers, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.
The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the private nature of the negotiations.
Fredette was bought out by the Sacramento Kings earlier this week and is expected to clear waivers later today. The former BYU-star averages 7.0 points per game for his career and is an above 40 percent shooter from three point range.
He’ll likely be given the opportunity to resurrect his career in Chicago with the potential for extended minutes on a playoff platform. Plus, we’ll get to see if he Fredette will ever get this concept of defense down. If Tom Thibodeau can’t help him, then I’m not really sure if anyone can.
