Report: ESPN Says Kings Will Trade Jimmer Fredette If Offered A First Round Pick

Yesterday it was reported by ESPN’s Marc Stein that the Sacramento Kings were involved in trade negotiations for Jimmer Fredette. Hoping to secure an additional first round draft selection, the Kings were apparently using Fredette as bait but the Sacramento Bee’s Jason Jones heard differently.

A day closer to the draft and it appears ESPN is continuing to hear trade chatter – which of course, needs to be taken with a heavy grain of salt.

According to Chad Ford, the Kings are still talking about a Jimmer trade and if they’re offered a first round pick in tomorrow’s NBA Draft, they’re pulling the trigger according to Ford:

I know the Kings are saying Jimmer isn’t on the block. Every GM, when they sign the contract, has to sign an oath that says I will deny ever putting a player on the block. It’s in there. No GM in history has ever shopped anyone. Oh, but the Kings are getting calls. If they can move him for a first round pick, they’re doing it.
