Jimmer Fredette has received increased minutes in the Sacramento Kings' past two games, and the guard believes he will now get a legitimate opportunity to prove that he belongs in an NBA rotation.

“It seems like that,” Fredette said. “I played in two games, and we won both of them, and it was great to be a part of that. Hopefully they will, and I think they really will. They’re trying to find a chemistry on this team and help us get wins. It’s up to them, but I think they’re true to that.”

The Kings appear to be playing Fredette due to their need for outside shooting -- not to showcase him as a potential trade candidate.

“I feel like I’m ready and I’ll keep getting better,” Fredette said.
