NBA Draft Rumors: Jimmer Fredette Won't Work Out For Bucks

Jimmer Fredette does not plan to work out for the Milwaukee Bucks, according to Charles F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (via HoopsHype). The Bucks pick No. 10 in the 2011 NBA Draft, which would appear to be toward the high end of Fredette's range. Jimmer, a standout at BYU and college basketball's National Player of the Year, is working out for the Sacramento Kings on Thursday. The Kings have the No. 7 pick in the June 23 draft. But most mock drafts slot Fredette between No. 13 and No. 19.

Gardner doesn't explain why Fredette would skip the Bucks except to quote a recent interview Jimmer did in Salt Lake City that focuses on fear of falling into the wrong situation. Milwaukee is a defensive-minded team with obvious holes up front and entrenched if underwhelming veterans (John Salmons, Corey Maggette and Carlos Delfino, though all also play small forward) at shooting guard.

Fredette is also working to convince teams he can play point guard in the NBA. Milwaukee has young Brandon Jennings at that position.
