Former BYU star Jimmer Fredette may be on the outs with the Sacramento Kings, who are in talks to trade him to Cleveland, according to ESPN's True Hoops Blog.
According to the report, the Kings are interested in clearing cap space to sign free agent Monta Ellis, and would send Fredette and Chuck Hayes to the Cavaliers.
Ellis opted out of an $11 million deal with the Milwaukee Bucks for next season and is seeking at least a $12 million deal for next season. According to CBSSports.com's Ken Berger, the market for Ellis is uncertain and a deal with the Kings may be his last chance to recoup the money he opted out of in Milwaukee.
Although full trade terms of the trade talks have not been released, it is likely that the Cavaliers would send draft picks, possibly in the second round, or cash for Fredette and Hayes.
Fredette averaged seven points and one assist per game last year for the Kings while shooting 42 percent from the field, and 42 percent from three.
