Jimmer Fredette has had an up and down start not only to this season, but also to his NBA career. His minutes have yo-yoed back and forth during his time with the Sacramento Kings. Lately, that’s started to change and Fredette is finally seeing some consistent action on the floor. He may not be playing the minutes his diehard fans would like, but Fredette now knows he’s part of the rotation. That may be one of the reasons for the third-year guard’s improved comfort level on the floor according to Chris Jent. Among his many duties, the Kings lead assistant often works on shooting with Fredette and the other guards as well the wings during pregame warmups. Cowbell Kingdom

Michael Malone has not yet named anyone to his coaching staff. But two strong candidates who could join him were spotted during the Sacramento Kings’ pre-draft workouts this morning and afternoon. Chris Jent and Roy Rogers were in attendance for today’s pre-draft auditions in Sacramento. Jent is in the running to become Malone’s lead assistant while Rogers would likely lend his expertise as a big man coach. “There’s nothing formal on that,” Malone said when asked if hiring both Jent and Rogers was a done deal. ”Obviously, I have some guys that I’m definitely looking at. I’m gonna try to hire the best staff I can and when we’re ready to announce that, we’ll let you guys know.” Cowbell Kingdom
