Ben McLemore Agrees to Deal with the Rockets

The Houston Rockets have added another piece to their roster. According to reports, the Rockets have signed free agent guard Ben McLemore. The deal is for two years and is partially guaranteed, which gives him a chance to earn a roster spot in training camp.

Rockets general manager welcomed McLemore in a tweet

McLemore last played for the Sacramento Kings, where he played 19 games. The Kings acquired McLemore in exchange for Garrett Temple. The Kings eventually waived McLemore later in the season. During his time with the Kings, he averaged 3.9 points.

McLemore started his career with Kings. He was their draft pick in the 2013 with the seventh overall pick. McLemore played with the Kings four years before signing a multi-year deal with the Memphis Grizzlies. Then, he returned to the Kings after their trade.

The free-agent guard has career averages of 8.8 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.7 assists. His best season was his second season, where he averaged a career-high 12.1 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.7 assists. He also played 82 games that season. McLemore showed promise but did not have another season like his 2014-15 season.

With the signing of McLemore, the Rockets have six players with partial or non-guaranteed contracts. The Rockets also have three Exhibit 10 contracts and two open Two-Way spots.

McLemore’s signing is not a significant move, but it gives him an opportunity to prove himself. If he gets minutes, he could be a helpful addition to the Rockets’ bench, so this a good move for the Rockets.
