2013 NBA Draft: Sacramento Kings Select Ben McLemore With No. 7 Pick
Position: Shooting Guard
About the Prospect: After sitting out the entire 2011-12 season at Kansas with NCAA eligibility issues, Ben McLemore remained patient and finally got his opportunity as a redshirt freshman this past year. He made the most out of it, bursting onto the scene with play that showcased his budding potential and overall athleticism. McLemore can get out and run and he can shoot the ball from the perimeter. He’s also not afraid to attack the rim and get to the free throw. McLemore is a great back court addition.
About His Impact on Team:
When considering the fact that McLemore could have been a top-three pick, this could turn out to be a solid pick for the Kings at No. 7. There was a reason why McLemore was considered one of the top guards in the country last season and it will be interesting to see how well he fits in with Sacramento during his rookie season.
If his career at Kansas is any indication of what to expect–McLemore has the potential to emerge into one of the league’s top guards of the future, but only time will tell when it comes to whether or not that ends up being right.
