Sacramento KingsJimmer Fredette was a beast in college, but that has definitely not been the case in the pros. So, will he ever meet expectations in the NBA?

There were plenty of people who thought that Fredette would be a bust and those people are turning out to be right.

Last season he only averaged 7.2 points per game. Of course, he did only play 14 minutes per game on average. Not many people will succeed in that little amount of playing time. There still is hope, though.

The team could always trade him. Sacramento is not a good basketball team and that will likely be the case in the upcoming season. Fredette is still young and the talent is there.

Even though he is not an elite scorer, he is a very good three-point shooter. He did shoot 41.7 percent from behind the arc last season and is shooting 38.4 percent for his career.

He has so much work to do if he ever wants to really make it in this league, but getting the proper playing time will be huge. Playing for a better team that actually competes would also help.

Until either of those things happen, though, we will not hear a whole lot about Fredette and he will be considered a bust. He was a top 10 pick not too long ago, but he has not found his way in the NBA yet.

Hopefully next season will bring him some success, but we will just have to wait and see if that will actually be the case.
