The Kings began Monday ranked last in the NBA with 16.6 assists per game.

That's not shocking, considering the Kings are shooting 40.1 percent, also last in the NBA.

Keith Smart believes Jimmer Fredette could help in those areas.

The second-year guard might be the most popular King, even though his playing time has been sporadic.

The Kings' offense has featured a lot of missed shots. Fredette, when he has played this season, has made more shots than he has missed.

It's why Smart said he must figure out how to make more time for Fredette on the floor.

"I've just got to get our team to (know) when he's on the floor, you've got to find that guy because that guy is making shots," Smart said. "If you want an assist, make sure you know where he's at first, and he'll get you that assist."
