Chicago Bulls interested in signing Kings outcast Fredette

The Chicago Bulls have registered an interest in Sacramento Kings guard Jimmer Fredette, reports ESPN.

25-year-old Fredette, a versatile shooter who can play at either guard position, was selected by the Western Conference strugglers with the 10th-overall pick of the 2011 draft but he has failed to nail down a starting spot at Sleep Train Arena and is expected to agree a buyout with the Kings that will see him become a free agent this week.

The aforementioned report - citing sources - suggests that such a buyout could be completed on Thursday, with Fredette's agent supposedly having already entered discussions with interested teams.

The Bulls have endured another trying season this year, with former MVP point guard Derrick Rose again forced to miss most of the campaign with a torn meniscus in his knee and fan favourite Luol Deng traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for the contract of Andrew Bynum.

Despite the absence of their superstar and the loss of arguably the NBA's hardest worker, however, Tom Thibodeau's crew have responded admirably to such adversity and currently find themselves as fourth seeds in the East with a record of 31-26.

Wednesday night's 103-83 destruction of the Golden State Warriors at United Center was the Bulls' seventh win in eight games, with the only defeat coming against the reigning champion Miami Heat.

Given that former BYU superstar Fredette is reportedly giving strong though to signing with an Eastern-based playoff contender, the Bulls could well be that team.
