Fredette Remains In Kings' Plans

Jimmer Fredette has received inconsistent playing time this season as the third point guard on the Sacramento Kings behind Isaiah Thomas and Aaron Brooks.

Fredette hasn't talked about pursuing a trade from the Kings with Geoff Petrie.

"No, definitely not," Fredette said with a laugh. "I haven't talked to Geoff about anything like that."

Fredette has been the subject of a #freejimmer campaign on Twitter.

"I can't control anything about that," Fredette said. "I'm here playing to the best of my ability and supporting my team, and other people can think whatever they want to think. That's not my job. My job is to be here, be supportive and play the best that I can."

Fredette remains in the Kings' plans, but the team has to figure out his role since he may be more of a combo guard.

"Everybody eventually gets their opportunity," Petrie said. "He's got a real good feel for the game, and he hasn't come close to shooting the ball to his potential. That's not a concern given the quality of his stroke and his history of making shots. It'll just require some patience and time."
