Jimmer Fredette Workout Impresses Sacramento Kings Front Office

Per the Deseret News:

“Jimmer played well. Of course he shot well, though not spectacularly — for him,” said Andrus. “He passed very well in the 3-on-3, dominating without shooting a lot. He also looked good, and I would guess quicker than the Kings’ braintrust might have expected, on defense. Offensively, he had some moves that had Jerry Reynolds, Pete Carril, and the whole row of Kings brass laughing and shaking their heads at how good he was. At one point he probably hit 15 20-foot pull-up jumpers in a row.

“It was actually comical to see how much (co-owner) Gavin Maloof seemed to be enthralled with Jimmer. While Tyler Honeycutt’s athleticism was impressive, both Maloof and Petrie went directly up to Jimmer afterwards and spent a considerable amount of time with him. I didn’t see them even speak to the other five players.”

I really wasn’t a big fan of Fredette at first, but, he has impressed throughout the course of his workouts and his draft stock seems to be rising daily. It’s still a risk at #7, but he’s doing his best to calm the fears with each impressive pre-draft workout he ace’s.
