Report: Kings Decline Jimmer Fredette's Fourth-Year Option

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Jimmer Fredette's option for 2014-15 is not being picked up, making him an unrestricted free agent after this year.

Today was the deadline for the Kings to decide whether or not to pick up Jimmer Fredette's 2014-15 team option.  Kings General Manager Pete D'Alessandro told Cowbell Kingdom earlier this week that they would likely not come to a decision before today.

Now it appears a decision has been made:

This decision means that this is the last year of Fredette's contract, after which he will become an unrestricted Free Agent.

Fredette has performed well at times but has struggled to find a place on a Kings team filled with guards.  After a solid preseason, Fredette again found himself out of the rotation in yesterday's season opener, as coach Michael Malone has Marcus Thornton and rookie Ben McLemore ahead of him on the rotation.  Fredette, who sees himself as a Point Guard, is also behind Greivis Vasquez and Isaiah Thomas at that position.
