Ben McLemore is headed to Portland to join the Trail Blazers. According to HoopsHype contributor Michael Scotto, Mclemore and the Blazers agreed to a deal on the opening day of free agency.
McLemore, who entered the NBA as a member of the Kings, played his first four seasons in Sacramento. Last year, he split time with the Rockets and the Lakers. In Los Angeles, he appeared in 21 games. In those outings, he averaged 8.0 points per game and connected on 36.8 percent of his three-point attempts. McLemore’s career field goal percentage clocks in at 41.6 percent.
The Trail Blazers also added free agent center Cody Zeller to the fold on Monday. McLemore and Zeller are early additions to a re-tooled bench for Portland. In the 2013 NBA Draft, McLemore was selected between Zeller and CJ McCollum at pick No. 7. McLemore will enter next season at 28 years old.
