This bummed me out, he never got a far shake here in Sac. He is raw but anytime he was given minutes he produced on the offensive end.

The BYU connection between him and Danny Ainge is pretty strong. Stevens values a 3PT specialist in his motion offense. It makes sense for him to come to the C's. Probably won't though.

Thank god. The Kings don't know how to utilize anyone. I was listening to Chris Colinsworth on the radio this morning and he's saying he's done because he can't defend. 60% of the NBA can't defend lol. Bring him to Milwaukee so I can get a reason to go there, as much as I like Giannis.

He also can't handle the ball well for a pg and tries to throw too many jump-passes

But in all seriousness, if Jimmer wanted minutes, he could go somewhere like New York since both Udrih and Felton are donebar, Utah would be another place as a 6th man and it gets people in the arena, and New Orleans could use a PG too

That's because they finally gave Isaiah minutes. I knew he'd be that good, idk how he went 60th overall. Still blows my mind to this day. Boogie just needed to get his head straight, and Gay has a little bit more offensive talent around him so he's getting better quality shots. Everyone else on the otherhand, not that great considering their overall record. They've had a revolving door at PF for the last 4 years or so and they still think that Jason Thompson still has potential, in which I think he's already peaked.

Eddie House 2.0

Any team could use a shooter off the bench.

He played for a garbage organization that never really gave him a chance albeit for 15-20 minute spurts....& even that wasn't consistent.

His handle and defense are mediocre to below average, but his shooting will keep him in this league just like it did for Eddie House.

Spacolie716
02-25-2014, 01:48 PM
I mean, he's never gonna be that great of a player, lets be real here. I mean, anything can happen, but I highly doubt it. But he's definitely not done in the league like what some people have been saying. I don't even see him being a starter anywhere except on a last place team, but a 6th man would be his ceiling in my opinion.

I don't think Jimmer is at a stage in his career when he wants to just win, he probably wants a chance to play consistent minutes more than anything.

Knicks seem like the obvious fit since he's a NY kid, and the Knicks wanted to draft him in 2011 before SAC took him. And of course with the Felton situation. And the way he lit up MSG a couple of weeks ago probably helps too.

My money says NY it is.

He's better than House... JJ Reddick took 5-6 years before he came into his own, I see a similar thing with Jimmeer.

Yeah it's not like he's in his 30's or anything (25 I believe). No contender really needs a scorer off the bench, that's the thing. Any legit contender already has them. Contenders would prefer defense over anything right now.

Spacolie716
02-25-2014, 02:02 PM
He's better than House... JJ Reddick took 5-6 years before he came into his own, I see a similar thing with Jimmeer.

That was because JJ was at a team were he was relied on too much and he couldn't quite handle it right away, or at least that's what it looked like to me. JJ on the Clippers is like the 4th scoring option considering CP3, Blake, and Crawford are in front of him. So he can be himself and get his shots. The problem with Jimmer is that he's too short to be a SG, (which that's what he pretty much is), and doesn't have the handles of a PG.

Redick made some HUGE strides. His game transformed significantly..and was the result of a LOT of work and effort. Just because he did it, doesn't mean Jimmer will...because Jimmer is at a low starting point here. His game has a ton of holes to it. I can't see how Jimmer flips the switch to becoming a even somewhat decent defender like JJ did (which is ultimately what got him on the court). He's also a tweener. JJ wasnt'.


And to whomever said "who cares, 60% of the league can't defend". There's a wide spectrum of "bad" and Jimmer is at the absolute bottom of that. He ranks second to last in defensive RAPM right now. Last year only Ben Gordon ranked lower. His synergy stats are vomit-inducing. From what I've see via the eye-test, it's not so much that he's a bad defender, it's that he can't even stay in front of his guys.

Just saying, Reddick didn't look like an NBA player for 5-6 years... too early to give up on Jimmeer

It's just not sound logic. For every guy who panned out after years of struggling and sitting on the bench for bad teams, there are guys that didn't turn it around. IDK, like Johnny Flynn, or Joe Alexander, or Terrence Williams. Sometimes it's NOT too early to give up on guys :shrugs:

You never know, he's gonna look for playing time most likely, Jameer is towards the end of his career and his minutes should dwindle down. Oladipo is a solid SG, idk why people wanted him to be a PG. And Afflalo will be out of there in the offseason through a trade I bet.

Shots have been fired! and P&G the reason why people are saying Jimmer to NY is because he's from there and has wanted to play there. Also the Knicks were considering getting him in the draft that year. Oh, and the Knicks need point guards? But believe me, not alot of people do want to go to NY because of their front office.

With potentially 2 picks in the lottery this year, a bunch of second rounders, the possible rookie of the year, Nerlon Noels, and $40+ mil in cap space the Sixers might be a good team for him. He'd play right away and the Sixers are a team that could go from terrible to good quickly.

They also have a coach known for developing young players and a GM that got rid of a bunch of bad players and bad contracts in a short period of time.

Jimmer could also play good minutes for us and be a part of a team for the long term. Of course a guy with his range on a contender would be nice.

I spoke with Jimmer right before the draft. He REALLY wanted to go to the Knicks. Fairly close to home, grew up a HUGE knicks fan and he wanted it then.

Now if that is how he feels today, I do not know. But what a great opportunity to be in the spotlight, and playing BIG minutes right away. All within driving distance from Home.

Normally I hate pure speculation like this but with Felton getting busted for gun charges and Beno getting bought out, there is no reason why he couldn't START at PG for the Knicks. It'd be a dream come true for Melo to have an actual pure spot-up shooter to help space the floor for him (hello Steve Novak and your wildly underrated season last year!).

02-25-2014, 05:06 PM
Don't you think it would be more beneficial for him to just go ANYWHERE that he could actually play? I mean, he's young and not proven...why look to lock on with a contender? I don't know why people are listing teams like Miami.

Yup. I would think opportunity would be the first priority. No one is even really sure he's truly NBA material. Sitting at the end of a bench won't help that. Ask Morrison.

Jimmer is so much like Reddick than Morrison... and Reddick eventually caught on and got a nice contract because his shooting couldn't be denied. The only difference is Jimmer is shorter but on a team that has other ball handlers he's perfect to space the floor. Love to test the waters on him in NY. I'd start him too. When Carmelo Anthony has reliable shooters he proved last year we are a completely different team.

Jimmer has no athleticism and no handle. Not to mention his defense is literally among the worst in the league according to advanced stats. He can't be a PG cause its such a labor to bring the ball up the court. Yes he can absolutely shoot lights out but I cant wait for people to see how limited he really is instead of thinking BYU Jimmer. No one cares about SAC outside of Kings fans like myself so no one sees him play. Rotational bench player is his ceiling. JJ Reddick is something Jimmer will not become.

And I don't want to say this, but the dark horse here will be the Nets. A PG who can play w/ the 2nd unit, can stroke the 3 w/ ball movement. They are going to be a dark horse. I hope my Knicks or the Bulls pick Jimmer up first, b/c he'd get playing time here. Well hopefully.

People miss the point on what the knicks need. I watched a lot of Jimmer in College and we all understand that college is NOT the NBA. Shooters SHOOT and Jimmer is PUREoffense.

Sacramento was a mess. I watched games just to see Jimmer play and the absolute Jungle street ball they played was confusing to watch. 90% of the time whoever had the ball in their hands at half court was the guy who took the shot. No cohesion, no flow just street ball.

Jimmer was THE MAN at BYU but what is often lost is how well he passed the ball at the same time. I understand he is not even an AVERAGE defender, but niether is FELTON. The difference between the two is that Fredette is an awesome spotup shooter.

Melo needs an outlet, in recent losses he has continually been upset at STUPID shots taken by others or wide open shots NOT taken by others.

With a guy like Jimmer lurking outside, Melo becomes more dangerous.

I normally don't believe people on here but the name does give you some cred! I got ex communicated but my family and me follow jimmer and knew from college he's a knick guy. Perfect fit too. I think the reason he's requesting the buyout is the kicks situation

Tyler and K-Mart when he is back both defend and are much better then Clark. If you are sick of looking at Stat or Bargs out there i understand but we already have options that are better then Clark. On the other hand, Jones brings you what Shump was supposed to. He defends the 1,2, and 3 better then anyone on the team and lets you go small while having a someone who has a sack at the 3. That's the only way the Knicks have been successful with Chandlor and Melo. They wont sign him but jones is the guy and probably should start on this team

I normally don't believe people on here but the name does give you some cred! I got ex communicated but my family and me follow jimmer and knew from college he's a knick guy. Perfect fit too. I think the reason he's requesting the buyout is the kicks situation

I own a restaurant that Jimmer frequented 3 times a week. Super quiet guy you would never even know who he was if you didn't know what he looked like.

I hope he signs with Okc.

Durant and Westbrook would draw a lot of attention, which would allow Fredette to get open for those 3s

Also Durant's a Huge fan of Fredette

You must have missed jump passes in the lane that become automatic turnovers or the occasional travel.

You tend to over-try when you get 8 minutes a game. In the right situiation with a bona-fide superstar next to you, Jimmer could be killer.

I'm still shocked my Knicks haven't released Cole Aldrich to get him. [no I'm not]

I'm more shocked the Nets haven't gone after him, I mean a 2 guard advantage on both the starting line up and 2 unit. How the hell does any GM resist that?

I'm more shocked the Bulls haven't gotten this guy [yeh a 47% shooter who would want that?]

I just find it funny how many if you want Jimmer on your team. Here's a guy who can't even get off the bench on one of the worst teams in the NBA. He can't play a lick of defense. He's to slow to guard the point and to small to guard the 2, and trust me, opposing teams go after him every time down the court. On offense he's not a good ball handler and has a hard time creating for himself. Yes he can shoot lights out, but it's really his complete lack of D that keeps him off the court.

^^^because with a good coach with great surrounding players like a contending team(OKC, Pacers, Miami, Clips, Spurs) he could just come in and do what he does best spot up shoot

The same could be saod with Jalen Rose coming out of retirement and being a spot up shooter for a contender

Thibs made can coach people up on defense and allow them be passable to their physical ability . If there are two coaches that can help players get better it's Pop and Thibs . Not to mention all the players that's came to Chicago left and got paid since Thibs tenure .

As a bulls fan I want Jimmer. Thibs was able to make korver respectable. Granted korver played a different position, different size, etc. But still, if there is a coach who can get the most out of him defensively its thibs.

Additionally, bulls play very unselfish basketball. While some may argue this is because rose is out and they don't have a pure scorer, fact is they move a ball and would get jimmer some looks.

Sacremento is so poorly run that I don't put a lot of stock in there judgment.

maybe they'll slot him some time at the 2 guard. He's been playing alongside iT in sac. are his handles any good?

hinrich and augustine but the bulls dont really have a backup sg , which could now be kirk and fredtte gets some of his pg minutes for example.
Snell backing up MDJ.
Wheres the backup sg at? u know what i mean.
