Ben McLemore Profile

Ben McLemore - Guard - 6'5 - 189 lbs
Kansas - Fr. - 21 years old


Ben McLemore is the best player at his position in this draft, though Victor Oladipo is in the picture as well. For teams looking for an offensive adjustment, McLemore is a perfect addition. A solid outside shooter and quick to the basket, McLemore will be able to create space for his teammates in many ways.

To become an NBA force, however, and not just a role player, McLemore needs to be able to make things happen off the dribble, and needs to become a little more self-centered. Team-oriented guys are important, but McLemore just has too much ability and potential to make himself that person.
