Kings Decline Fourth Year Option On Jimmer Fredette
What was supposed to a solid NBA career for Jimmer Fredette is slowly disintegrating into the label of ultimate bust.
Sam Amick of USA Today is reporting that the Kings have decline to pick up their team for next season, and will allow the disgruntled guard to become a free agent.
On deadline day, I’m told the Kings have informed Jimmer Fredette of their decision not to pick up his 14-15 team option ($3.1 mil)

Fredette would have been due $3.1 million if the Kings exercised the option.
Fredette was the No. 10 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft ahead of more talented players such as Klay Thompson, Kawhi Leonard and Iman Shumpert to name a few.
The 2011 National Player of the Year simply hasn’t been able to crack the Kings guard rotation.
