08:11 AM ET 08.20 | The future of the Jimmer show, which had lit up college basketball before it opened in the NBA, played to mixed reviews -- an average of 7.6 points, 1.8 assists and 1.2 rebounds in nearly 19 minutes of game action across 61 of them -- in a rookie campaign of 2011-12, and things now seem a bit more complicated with a crowded backcourt in Sacramento. [Fredette] would love to go someplace where someone other than just DeMarcus Cousins will pass him the ball. Thunder would love to pry Fredette away from Kings as replacement for Derek Fisher. Kevin Durant is a Jimmer fan.

Because he's cheap, one-dimensional and no one wants him.

What leadership would Jimmer bring? OKC already has too many gunners...

I agree...this is a non-story. Jimmer wouldn't even sniff mop up duty on OKC's roster...smhl

Just as you had tons of Jeremy "Love" Lin fans, you'll now have hoards of busters championing the Jimmer "Jazzy" Jeff fan club. Is this what the NBA have now come to?.......all the Jimmer/Jeremy causes. OKC....stay away!

Maybe Jimmer's brother can write a rap song about it.

Yeah, you know my brotha, tha Jimmer,
Sounds kinda dirty, but he's clean like a swimma.

He's a Mormon, yo, he will be for liiife,
But we get benefits like takin 4 wiiives!

Now you ask why he may fit in OKC?
That's cause he'll hit a three and then say "look at me!"

He'll join Westbrook and Durant making all the moves,
And that's me, TJ, breakin' all the grooves!
