Spurs to Waive Jimmer Fredette, per Report

The San Antonio Spurs will waive guard Jimmer Fredette, according to Yahoo! Sports’ Shams Charania.

Fredette received $500,000 in guaranteed money to go to Spurs camp, but he clearly didn’t show enough to warrant a spot on the final roster. He had just four points on 2-of-10 shooting overall and 0-of-3 from long range in 26 preseason minutes.

The 10th pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, the Sacramento Kings acquired Fredette in a draft-night deal from the Milwaukee Bucks, but he made little impact and lasted just two-plus seasons in Sacramento.

It was the same story with the Chicago Bulls and New Orleans Pelicans over the last few years, but the Spurs still hoped they could get something out of Fredette. But that didn’t happen, and now he doesn’t have an NBA job.

Where Fredette goes from here is anybody’s guess. As Charania notes, perhaps he heads overseas in an attempt to rebuild his stock.
