An unwillingness to adjust his freewheeling college game to the NBA style of play led to Jimmer Fredette‘s lack of success in the league, a former NBA assistant told Michael Lee of Yahoo Sports. The Spurs waived Fredette on Wednesday, though four other NBA teams still reportedly have some level of interest in him. Fredette is a former lottery pick, having gone 10th overall to the Kings back in 2011. Still, he didn’t make too much of an impact during his rookie season, and his numbers have declined ever since. He shot only 18.8% from three-point range last season with the Pelicans and didn’t make a three-pointer in the preseason this month for the Spurs.
This brings me to the topic/question of the day: Does Jimmer Fredette have a future as an NBA player? If so, what adjustments to his game need to be made?
Fredette thus far has shown himself to be a one-dimensional player, and his one marketable skill, outside shooting, hasn’t been consistent enough to allow him to stick on an NBA roster thus far in his professional career. Do you believe Fredette can alter his game enough to become a reliable contributor in the league, or is his dream of being an NBA player at an end? Is there a team or system that would be ideal for the shooting guard? Take to the comments section below to share your thoughts and opinions on the subject. We look forward to what you have to say.
