NBA Trade Speculation: 3 Teams Who Can Use Sacramento's Jimmer Fredette

Jimmer Fredette is arguably the best offensive player on the Sacramento Kings, but he only plays 14 minutes a game and it has become clear that head coach Keith Smart isn't concerned with getting the former BYU superstar more playing time.

Until a couple of games ago, Fredette led the Kings in player efficiency rating (PER). With a PER of 18.4, he's now second on the team behind DeMarcus Cousins. He leads Sacramento in true shooting percentage, offensive rating and win shares per 48 Minutes.

In just 14 minutes a game, Fredette is averaging 8.2 points a game while shooting 41 percent from three-point range and 91 percent from the free-throw line.

The young guard's talents are being utterly wasted in a system and on a team that couldn't be much worse for him.

Prior to the season, there were rumblings that Fredette may be moved, and his strong offensive play these first few months of the season may have increased his trade value. 

Here are three teams that could use Jimmer's offensive abilities.
