The "Free Jimmer Fredette" movement has reached its tipping point.
The Sacramento Kings have decided not to pick up Fredette's team option for next year, making him an unrestricted free agent after this season.
It's a somewhat surprising fall for Fredette, who has gone from college standout at BYU to the 10th pick in the draft to a third-string guard for the Kings in just two seasons.
Is too late for him to revive his career? Maybe not. Despite failing to live up to the hype overall, Fredette has still shot the ball very well from behind the arc in his limited time on the floor, and there appear to be suitors out there on the trade market.
Utah seems like a natural fit given the injuries at point guard for the Jazz and the need to sell tickets, but perhaps the following six playoff contenders can instead provide a better home for Fredette this season.
