RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

McLemore is the starting shooting guard for the Kings. McLemore was widely projected as the second overall pick in last summer's draft, but shockingly fell all the way to the Kings at pick number seven. Now, with little chance of a winning season and heading into a highly anticipated draft class, the Kings have every reason to give McLemore as much court time as he needs to develop. Even if he stumbles, he will continue to receive opportunities to improve. In his only season at Kansas, he was a remarkably efficient shooter – averaging .495 FG, .420 3Pt, and .870 FT. He is capable of providing some steals, blocks, and assists, and is a strong rebounder. If McLemore's game can translate to the professional level – a big "if", especially in light of the six teams that passed on the prospect last summer during a "weak" draft – he has the potential to positively contribute in almost every category.
