Top Ben McLemore News

  • Trail Blazers' Ben McLemore: Agrees to deal with Portland

    McLemore agreed to terms on a contract with the Trail Blazers on Monday, Michael Scotto of USA Today reports.

    McLemore spent time in Houston and LA during the 2020-21 campaign, averaging 7.7 points and 1.9 rebounds across 53 games. He'll serve in a bench role with Portland, likely competing with Anfernee Simons for playing time at shooting guard.

  • Lakers' Ben McLemore: Provides three-point support

    McLemore tallied 12 points (4-8 FG, 4-7 3Pt) and one rebound across 22 minutes in Sunday's 123-110 win over the Suns.

    Since he arrived from Houston, McLemore's sharpshooting skills have generated considerable spark to the Lakers' offense when they give way to the second unit. He's never been a solid contributor in secondary stats, so his success is completely dependent on his shooting accuracy, which is usually determined by three-point attempts.

  • Lakers' Ben McLemore: Hits four triples off bench

    McLemore registered 16 points (5-16 FG, 4-12 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 22 minutes during Wednesday's 116-107 loss to the Wizards.

    The 28-year-old has now hit at least one three-pointer in nine of his first 11 games as a Laker. McLemore's court time has been a roller coaster lately, as he's played 17, 23, 10, 16, nine, 29, 12, and 22 minutes over his last seven games, respectively. Feel free to stream the eighth-year guard in deeper formats if you're in desperate need of some points and threes.

  • Lakers' Ben McLemore: Returning to bench

    McLemore will come off the bench for Monday's game against the Magic, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    After making a spot start in place of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope on Saturday, McLemore will head back to the bench as KCP returns to his customary shooting guard spot. McLemore went off for 20 points and six three-pointers Saturday, though the Lakers fell to the Mavs for the second time in three nights.

  • Lakers' Ben McLemore: Leads team with 20 points

    McLemore scored 20 points (7-12 FG, 6-10 3Pt, 0-1 FT) and blocked one shot in Saturday's loss to the Mavericks.

    Anthony Davis played 28 minutes, and the Lakers also had Andre Drummond and Dennis Schroder in their starting lineup, but it was the recently acquired McLemore who paced the team in scoring in the loss. The sharpshooter knocked down six three-pointers in the contest, his most since joining Los Angeles on April 6. In nine games with the team, McLemore is averaging 9.4 points and 2.0 treys while shooting 44.3 percent from the field.

  • Lakers' Ben McLemore: Starting for KCP

    McLemore will start Saturday's game against the Mavericks, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.

    With Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (ankle) sidelined, McLemore will make his first start as a member of the Lakers. In four starts with the Rockets, McLemore has averaged 13.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 steals in 29.8 minutes.

  • Lakers' Ben McLemore: Hits 17-point mark in loss

    McLemore finished Thursday's loss to the Celtics with 17 points (7-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds and two assists over 23 minutes.

    McLemore's 17 points matched his season high with his current team, though he did notch two 21-point efforts earlier in the season with Houston. The veteran was a big part of a valiant fourth-quarter comeback attempt by the Lakers, during which they nearly erased a 27-point deficit. McClemore has drained 10 three-pointers over his past four contests, demonstrating his primary value to the team. He could continue to find minutes in the teens even after Los Angeles gets healthy if he is able to consistently drain shots from deep.

  • Lakers' Ben McLemore: Posts 17 points in win

    McLemore recorded 17 points (6-12 FG, 5-10 3Pt), a rebound and a steal across 23 minutes in Saturday's 126-101 win over the Nets.

    McLemore came in handy after Dennis Schroder's ejection, but the recent acquisition had already made his presence known independently in his debut on Thursday night. The loss of LeBron James (ankle) has capped the Lakers' ability to move the offense, and a guard with McLemore's spot-up shooting ability should help bridge the gap until Los Angeles' two superstars return from injury.

  • Lakers' Ben McLemore: Sees 17 minutes in team debut

    McLemore posted six points (1-4 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT) and two rebounds across 17 minutes during Thursday's 110-104 loss to Miami.

    In his first game with the Lakers, McLemore put forth a fairly forgettable display in limited action off the bench. That said, the four trips to the foul line matched a season high for the 28-year-old guard who normally does his damage from downtown. McLemore will likely see a smaller workload when Kyle Kuzma (calf) and Talen Horton-Tucker (suspension) return to action.

  • Lakers' Ben McLemore: Expected to debut Thursday

    Lakers head coach Frank Vogel indicated that McLemore is on track to make his team debut Thursday against the Heat, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Los Angeles didn't include McLemore on its Wednesday's injury report, which seemingly suggests that he's passed all COVID-19 intake testing. McLemore is expected to contend for a second-unit role for a Lakers squad that could use some extra scoring punch while Anthony Davis (calf) and LeBron James (ankle) remain sidelined indefinitely.

  • Lakers' Ben McLemore: Headed to Lakers

    McLemore agreed to a one-year contract with the Lakers on Tuesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    After being waived by Houston a few days ago, McLemore quickly found a new home in Los Angeles. In 32 games for the Rockets this season, the 27-year-old wing averaged 7.4 points on 35.7 percent shooting from the field to go with 2.1 rebounds and 1.7 triples per game. The Lakers are already relatively deep on the wing, so McLemore will likely have a fairly limited role off the bench.

  • Ben McLemore: Waived by Rockets

    McLemore has been waived by the Rockets, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    McLemore was recently cut from Houston's rotation as the Rockets continue to focus on the future, so this move was is not completely surprising. The sharpshooting wing is expected to see interest from several contenders on the free-agent market.

  • Rockets' Ben McLemore: Cut out of rotation

    McLemore (coach's decision) went unused Monday in the Rockets' 120-110 loss to the Grizzlies.

    McLemore had hit double figures in the scoring column while playing 20-plus minutes in each of the last three games, but he lost out on a rotation spot with both Danuel House (personal) and Avery Bradley (calf) cleared to return from multi-game absences. In addition to House and Bradley, Sterling Brown and Kevin Porter also look to be ahead of McLemore in the pecking order for playing time on the wing.

  • Rockets' Ben McLemore: Moves to bench

    McLemore will come off the bench Saturday against the Timberwolves, Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

    The 28-year-old started Friday and put up 21 points (7-15 FG, 7-14 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists and one steal, but he'll shift back to the bench with Kevin Porter (quadriceps) rejoining the lineup. McLemore should still be included in the rotation but will have a lesser role as a reserve.
