Because he is among the best 3-point shooters in the league — he makes 49.3 percent from the arc — Fredette figures to attract much attention once the waiver process begins. Because Fredette played at BYU, he has long been linked to the Jazz, but sources indicated that Utah showed no interest in trading for him last week, even at a rock-bottom price. Sporting News

The Sacramento Kings and guard Jimmer Fredette are finalizing a buyout agreement on his contract, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Fredette, the 10th overall pick in the 2011 NBA draft, will be a free agent should he clear NBA waivers. Yahoo! Sports

Nevertheless, he has struggled to find his niche with the Kings. Still, there are expected to be several teams with interest in signing him for the rest of the season, league sources said. Fredette, 25, has averaged 5.9 points per game for the Kings this season – and seven in his three-year NBA career. Yahoo! Sports
