RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2015-16

Following a disappointing rookie campaign in 2013-14, McLemore displayed significant improvement across the board in his sophomore season, averaging 12.1 points and 1.7 assists while shooting 44 percent from the field and 36 percent from beyond the arc. Each of those numbers represented an increase from his rookie year, with the most improvement displayed in his shot selection and field goal percentage. McLemore's strength is his top-level athleticism which he uses to finish well at the rim, particularly on fast breaks. His main weakness is his inability to defend opposing shooting guards, grading out as bottom-five defender versus opposing twos in each of the past two seasons. He'll now be paired with an elite distributor in Rajon Rondo which should help his ability to score, but McLemore may now face competition for minutes from Darren Collison and Marco Belinelli. The upcoming season could help establish whether McLemore takes his game to the next level or becomes merely a rotation player on a below-average NBA team.

2014-15

The uber-athletic McLemore flew under the radar as a rookie, despite playing in all 82 games and making 55 starts. One of the best athletes in the league at the shooting guard spot, McLemore struggled offensively last season, posting an ugly 38 overall shooting percentage. A three-point marksman in his one season at Kansas, McLemore shot a disappointing 32 percent from long range. He also added 2.9 rebounds and 1.0 assist. Despite the relatively poor rookie numbers, McLemore remains one of the NBA's highest upside talents. He had a solid showing at the Las Vegas Summer League, but 2014 first-round pick, Nik Stauskas, performed well there too. The sharpshooter out of Michigan isn't as athletic as McLemore, but he's a more polished overall player and will certainly challenge McLemore for the starting shooting guard spot.

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.
