NBA free agency rumors: Kings waiving guard Ben McLemore

McLemore is averaging career-lows in points (3.9), rebounds (.9) and assists (.2) this season.

Ben McLemore is no longer a part of the Kings’ organization.

Sacramento is waiving the 25-year-old guard, according to a report from The Athletic, which cites unidentified league sources.

McLemore is averaging career-lows in points (3.9), rebounds (.9) and assists (.2) this season. He’s shooting 39.1 percent from the field and 41.5 percent from 3-point range.

McLemore was originally selected by Sacramento out of Kansas with the seventh pick of the 2013 draft. He spent his first four seasons with the franchise before playing with the Grizzlies in 2017-18. He was dealt back to the Kings in July.

The Kings made multiple moves before the trade deadline, including acquiring guard Alec Burks from the Cavaliers and forward Harrison Barnes from the Mavericks.

The Kings will enter play Thursday 1 1/2 games behind the Clippers for the eighth spot in the Western Conference standings with a 28-26 record.
