Kings exercise options on Cousins, Fredette

The Sacramento Kings exercised their club options on center DeMarcus Cousins and guard Jimmer Fredette for the 2013-14 season.

Cousins averaged 18.1 points and 11.0 rebounds last season -- his second in the NBA after the Kings selected him with the fifth overall pick in the 2010 draft.

Fredette, the 10th overall pick in 2011, put up mediocre numbers in his rookie campaign, totaling 7.6 points and 1.8 assists last season.

"We're looking forward to seeing DeMarcus and Jimmer play this year and continue to grow, improve and help this team be successful," said Kings president of basketball operations Geoff Petrie.
