Suns decline option on Fredette, who will join Warriors

Veteran guard Jimmer Fredette saw limited action with the Suns after several years in China.

The Phoenix Suns have decided to decline the team option on guard Jimmer Fredette’s contract, according to Shams Charnania of Stadium, but Fredette won’t be out of work for long.

Per Golden State Warriors assistant general manager Larry Harris, Fredette will join the Warriors’ summer squad.

Fredette, 30, is a former lottery pick who has spent time with the Sacramento Kings, New Orleans Pelicans and Chicago Bulls. He returned the NBA at the end of this past season with the Phoenix Suns, after a few years playing in China.

Fredette struggled in limited action, averaging just 3.7 points and shooting 27.6 percent, while missing all 13 of his 3-point attempts.
