After one season in Memphis, McLemore will return to the team that originally selected him with the 7th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. After five NBA seasons, McLemore is yet to make the impact of most lottery picks, and he now lands with a team in Sacramento that already has plenty of young backcourt talent with the likes of Bogdan Bogdanovic, Buddy Hield and Justin Jackson all under contract. As a result, minutes will likely be hard to come by once again for the 25-year-old this season.
McLemore managed 7.5 points, 2.5 rebounds and 0.9 assists over 56 games played with Memphis during the 2017-18 season.
McLemore was just about average all season long as his stats indicate. The 24-year-old only scored more than 20-points twice while playing in a career low 56 games. McLemore is bound to make around $5.4 million next year in what would be his final year on his contract.
McLemore finished with 18 points (8-15 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, and one assist in 42 minutes during Monday's 113-94 loss to the Timberwolves.
McLemore managed a team high scoring effort while earning 10 minutes more than any other Grizzly. He couldn't find his form from beyond the arc, but overall it was a fairly efficient showing. With the team locked in to the second-worst record, McLemore and company can let it all hang out during Wednesday's season finale versus the playoff-bound Thunder.
McLemore struggled from the floor Friday, failing to make one of his four three-point attempts while converting just one of his seven shots overall. The former Kansas standout is averaging a career low 7.1 points during his fifth NBA season.
McLemore will draw the start Wednesday against the Pelicans.
With Wayne Selden sitting out with a sore knee, McLemore will jump into the starting lineup. Over the past two games, McLemore is averaging 26.0 minutes, and it's likely he'll see more Tuesday.
