You would think for first round lottery pick and player of the year Jimmer there would be many teams happy to give up a first round lottery pick to get him. Once in a while we hear about a rumor, but why don't we hear of tons of teams willing to give up a first round lottery pick to get first round lottery pick Jimmer?

Chris B.. I don't think there were many of who thought Jimmer was going to dominate in the NBA the way he did in college. However, he was drafted by the one of the worst ran teams in the NBA, if not the worst.
I can assure you if Kawhi Leonard would have been drafted to the Kings you would have never heard his name after college. Switch the roles. If Jimmer went to the Spur's as a spot up role player, you would be hearing more about Jimmer. The great thing Jimmer does is spread defenses out because of his shooting abilities. If he was on a team like the Spur's where the ball went into Duncan and when everyone collapsed on him, he could kick it out to a guy like Jimmer to rain 3's all day. Miami would be another great place for him to go where he is not the main focus but could spot up and shoot.
Jimmer was not meant for a team like the SAC Town Queens.

Cougar Blue,

And yet where are all the rumors of first round picks for lottery pick Jimmer? You and I both know whatever future he has, its not with the kings. All other NBA teams know that as well. So why hasn't another team come forward and offered a first round pick in exchange for first round lottery pick Jimmer? And again, you and I both know that the Kings would love to receive such an offer, so don't use the excuse "maybe teams are offering that"
