The Kings are playing perhaps the hottest team in the NBA, but Jimmer Fredette dominated coach Michael Malone’s pregame chat.

The Kings are negotiating a buyout with Fredette, the popular 2011 first round draft pick. Fredette will not be at the game.

Fredette did attend this morning’s shootaround, where the team sang happy birthday to him. Today is Fredette’s 25th birthday.

The buyout is not official, but the Kings are moving to find players to fill in on the roster.
