Jimmer Fredette made headlines recently with a number of different teams interested in his services after he completed a buyout with the Sacramento Kings.
The former Brigham Young University star probably hopes that a change of scenery will give him an opportunity to improve his game; Fredette hasn’t averaged more than eight points per game in his career so far.
Fredette’s struggles bring to mind a number of other talented basketball players whose skills never panned out in the NBA.
