Think back a few years to when Jimmer and Sacramento had not become a toxic relationship yet. There was hope that Fredette had a great shot at being the point guard of the future for the Kings.
Sometimes we forget that there was a different coach at the helm when Jimmer was drafted – a coach who believed in what Jimmer could do and wanted to use him. This was a coach who got canned seven games into the regular season.
Guess what coach just agreed to be an assistant with the Brooklyn Nets? Paul Westphal, ladies and gentlemen.
ESPN reported the news last week. With a likely new team direction and an assistant coach who knows what Jimmer can do, will Jimmer finally catch on with a team who sees him as a usable set piece?
Fredette is still a free agent, and after the loss of Shaun Livingston the Nets have a need at PG.
What do you think – Jimmer back to his home state this year?
