Why the NBA is suing Jimmer Fredette

Kings rookie Jimmer Fredette was named as a defendant in the NBA's unfair labor practices suit against the National Basketball Players Association.

Fredette is one of two rookies named in the suit, along with Charles Jenkins, a second-round pick of the Golden State Warriors.

Both were named in the suit because they are from New York, where the suit was filed.

Adding the rookies covers having an unsigned player that would receive a guaranteed deal (Fredette) and another that wouldn't (Jenkins). Others named included Knicks star Amar'e Stoudemire (who is under contract) and Mike Dunleavy, a free agent, along with the leadership of the NBPA.

In the big scheme of things, this won't mean much. Nevertheless, Fredette is keeping the Kings in the news, even during the NBA lockout.
