Sacramento guard Jimmer Fredette has demanded a King’s ransom.

According to the National Basketball Association, the former Brigham Young standout filed suit Monday against a Utah-based clothing company over more than $50,000 in royalties that he claims haven’t been paid.

Fredette entered an endorsement agreement with Black Clover Enterprises in March 2012 to use his name and likeness on a variety of products. The transaction also called for the cager to make himself available for two hours during “appearance day”, wear the apparel at media events and promote it.

Fredette’s attorney, Tyson Snow, filed the suit Monday in Utah’s Third District Court against Black Clover. The litigation alleges breach of contract, abuse of identity and using Fredette’s 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 told the NBA Thursday.

Fredette, 24, is in the second year with the Kings and earns $2.4 million.
