Kings decline to pick up Jimmer's contract option
The Kings on Thursday declined to pick up the fourth-year option on guard Jimmer Fredette's contract for the 2014-15 season, which would have paid the 2011 first-round draft pick a little more than $3 million. The deadline to do so was Thursday at 9 p.m.
Therefore, Fredette will be an unrestricted free agent after the season. The Kings could re-sign him at a reduced salary, but the decision likely means this will be Fredette's final season with the team.
