As the Kings usually do, they botched everything. Fredette was a hot name out of BYU, a popular player with range as soon as he crossed midcourt, but what he lacked was a position. They took him anyone, probably in hopes of selling tickets. It backfired. Fredette’s shooting stats have actually improved in each of his three seasons, even though his minutes have dwindled.
