Jimmer Fredette entered the NBA as one of the top scorers out of BYU last year, but after a mediocre first season in the league, rumors have the Sacramento Kings looking to move the young guard before the start of the upcoming season.
Sports Illustrated has confirmed that Fredette is on the trading block and the latest has Milwaukee as the top option. The Bucks need some scoring punch off their bench and after showing scouts and GMs his shooting touch is in good form this summer, a deal between the two teams could happen in the next few days.
Fredette has been labeled a defensive liability and until the youngster begins to play with more hustle and desire on that side of the court, coming off the bench is about all that will become of the 23-year-old.
The NBA is always willing to give players a second and sometimes third chance, but being traded this early in his career by a team that has not shown much success is not a good way to begin a professional career. Luckily the young shooting guard has time to turn things around and one good season could turn things around, and the Bucks and their fans would love it to be in Milwaukee.
