Jed Jacobson/Getty Images(CHICAGO) — After a disappointing run with the Sacramento Kings, guard Jimmer Fredette is ready to get his career back on the track with the Chicago Bulls.

Earlier this week, Fredette’s contract was bought out by the Kings despite being the 10th overall pick back in the 2011 draft.

Now that he’s in Chicago, he wants to take his game to another level.

“I see how this team plays and they play hard every single night,” Fredette said. “And they play for each other and they play the right way and that’s kinda something I was looking for, to come into a team where I could fit in and play the way that I wanted to and play hard every single night and be part of a team. So I’m excited to be here and I can’t wait to start and get out there and see how things go.”

Fredette averaged just 5.9 points per game for the Kings despite shooting .475% from the field, and .493% from the three-point line.

In his Bulls debut on Sunday, Fredette scored two points in three minutes of play.
