The Top 20 Second Year Player - Fredette & Thomas

I am an espn insider and Thorpe just did an article about the top 20 second year players. For those non insiders, I thought I would extract the relevant Kings Information... Please Comment

"9. Jimmer Fredette, Kings

Fredette came into the league as a scintillating scorer, but experts thought he'd be more of a shooting specialist rather than a top scorer in this league. This season, with better shot selection and far more balance in his game, Fredette looks like he's going to be one of the top shooters in this league for years. As a backup he has adjusted to his role as a shooting specialist, and perhaps has earned the right to get more minutes and responsibility moving forward. There is not a team in the NBA that does not value, or need, a shooter like Fredette.

14. Isaiah Thomas, Kings

He can come in and light up the scoreboard as if he's the hardest guy in the league to defend. But Thomas rarely gets those chances because he is a bad defender on a terrible defensive team."
