Kings buying out Jimmer Fredette

Jennifer Stewart-USA TODAY Sport

Multiple reports indicate that Jimmer's time as a King is over.

Multiple reports this morning indicate that the Sacramento Kings are working on a buyout agreement with point guard Jimmer Fredette.  It was expected that Jimmer would have a reduced role the remainder of the season, but it comes as somewhat of a surprise that he'll be bought out.

Jimmer has the best three point field goal percentage among all qualified players in the NBA, and should be a coveted free agent once a buyout is completed.

The Kings attempted to trade Jimmer at the deadline, but we're unable to fetch even a second round pick.

Jimmer is a talented player, but has never fit with any of the multitude of Kings coaches. Fredette was the 10th overall pick in the 2011 draft. As a reminder, the Kings traded back in that draft as part of the acquisition of John Salmons. Thanks Geoff Petrie.

It's a disappointing end to Jimmer's Kings career, but he's been a consummate professional in Sacramento. We wish him all the best.
