Kings Exercise Option On Ben McLemore

The Kings announced that they have picked up the 2015/16 option on guard Ben McLemore‘s contract.  The move was something of a formality as it was widely expected.

The guard averaged 8.8 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 1.0 assists in 26.7 minutes per contest as a rookie last season.  On the surface, the two guard didn’t have a hard time adjusting to the pros as he saw time in all 82 games in 2013/14.  McLemore’s name was brought up in trade rumors more than once last year, particularly in connection with Celtics star Rajon Rondo.  Nothing came from those talks, however, and McLemore could prove to be an integral part of the Kings’ future.
