One of Fredette's biggest questions is his defense. However, this really is not as big of a deal as people are making it out to be. He is a 6'2" guard with a 6'4" wingspan, which is to Stephen Curry and Deron Williams. Fredette is average athletically, but that is something he can work on with some vigorous training.
In an interview with Yahoo Sports, Fredette said, "There are a lot of question marks out there. There are a lot of guys who don’t think I can play at this level and I won’t be able to dominate as well as the college level. I’m not expecting to do that at the NBA level right away anyway."
That alone shows that he is going to prove people wrong and work hard to improve his game in the best he can which starts on the defensive side of the ball.
Critics of Fredette also pointed out that he looked as if he could care less about playing defense. Well, that was almost a given being on a team where you are forced to score 33-plus points per game as you are really the only offensive option. He will not be able to do that on this Kings team, so expect his defense to jump to another level.
