Chris Jent Rumors
Adrian Wojnarowski: Unclear if top assistant Chris Jent will stay on with Corbin. D’Allesandro will meet with Jent on Monday to discuss future together.
“Well, I think with Jimmer it’s stated, and I think it’s probably accurate for any player, is that he knows he’s gonna play,” Jent said in an outtake from this week’s Cowbell Kingdom Podcast. “And when you know you’re going to play, you’ve got a different approach to your day. “You’re in your routine,” added Jent. “You know you’re going to step on the floor and you’ve just got a certain comfort level – before game, during game.”
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.
The Sacramento Kings announced today the team has accepted the resignation of Assistant Coach Brendan Malone, effective immediately. No replacement will be made at this time and moving forward, Chris Jent will assume responsibilities as the lead assistant on Head Coach Michael Malone’s staff.
