Jimmer Fredette could be one of the most electrifying players in the NBA if he ever gets an opportunity. And with Fredette now a free agent, it's time to examine the five best landing spots for him this summer.

Although Fredette didn't get much of a chance with the Chicago Bulls throughout the end of the regular season, he's exactly what the team needs — another shooter off of the bench who can score in bunches. Get him in the mix with a healthy Derrick Rose and Fredette could thrive in the Windy City. It's just a matter if head coach Tom Thibodeau gives him a spot in the rotation.

The Lakers would be an intriguing team for Fredette. With Kobe Bryant in the tail end of his Hall of Fame career, and Pau Gasol more than likely on the way out, Fredette could give the Lakers something more to cheer about on that rebuilding team. He would also be able to get more playing time and be able to prove his worth in the league.

If the Heat are able to keep LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade this summer, Fredette could be a great addition to that team. With Miami not expecting to keep point guard Mario Chalmers, there could be a spot for Fredette in head coach Erik Spoelstra's rotation. Fredette could be the same x-factor that saw sharpshooters Ray Allen and Mike Miller thrive alongside the Heat's Big 3.

After being edged out of the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference, the young Phoenix Suns will look to tinker their roster and add a few pieces to get them over the top. Fredette would fit in perfectly with a young nucleus that is looking to grow together. Fredette's shooting touch would also take some of the pressure and scoring burden off of Goran Dragic -- especially if the Suns lose Eric Bledsoe to free agency this summer.

One of the most intriguing landing spots for Fredette is the Golden State Warriors. With new coach Steve Kerr now at the helm, Fredette can learn from Kerr who won multiple championships as a sharpshooting role player. Fredette could also take over the role that Jarrett Jack had two seasons ago as the team's sixth man, a role that the Warriors weren't really able to fill during the 2013-14 season.

    How are the spurs not on this list? Think of all the open corner 3s they get, then consider that he shot 89% from there last year. It’s a no-brainer.
