Sacramento Kings guard Jimmer Fredette has filed suit against a Utah-based clothing company, alleging they failed to pay $50,000 plus royalties. Per the AP: “Fredette’s Salt Lake City-based attorney, Tyson Snow, filed the complaint Monday in Utah’s 3rd District Court against Black Clover Enterprises. It alleges breach of contract, abuse of Fredette’s identity and using his name and likeness for profit. ‘We are working with Black Clover attorneys and it is our hope that the complaint can be dismissed in the near future,’ Snow said Thursday. Fredette, 24, is now in his second year with the NBA’s Sacramento Kings and earns $2.4 million. Brett Wayment, one of Black Clover’s owners, also said both sides have been working toward a resolution and hoped to continue the business relationship with Fredette. The apparel company has been selling Fredette hats with Kings colors. The lawsuit says Fredette entered an endorsement agreement with Black Clover in March 2012 to use his name and likeness on a variety of products. In exchange, the former NCAA national player of the year was to receive $50,000 a year plus royalties of up to 10 percent of company revenues on endorsed products.”
