This past Thursday marked another questionable day for the Kings organization. Of the players I had preferred the Kings pick, Jimmer Fredette wasn't one of them.
And I sincerely hope I am wrong for those sentiments.
While he is a great shooter, hard worker and was a fantastic PR move, I still feel there were players with higher ceilings and better natural ability.
This pick had Petrie written all over it though. Solid shooter, high basketball IQ, not a defender, and less athletic than you would prefer from a player at that position. Seems about on par with plenty of other Petrie picks (see: Peja Stojakovic, Kevin Martin, Francisco Garcia, Quincy Douby, Spencer Hawes, Jason Thompson, Omri Casspi, Jon Brockman).
Either way, lets dissect what the Kings did to (hopefully) improve their team.
