Ben McLemore - SG - Kansas

Ben McLemore is a 6'4" 195 pound redshirt freshman SG for Kansas. He turns 20 this February and is a very good athlete with great leaping ability and very good quickness.

Draft Express Profile

He is very good at coming off of curls and hitting shots, shooting 44% from three. McLemore continues to improve his game as the season progresses. He is becoming more capable of handling the ball when defenders play him tight.

I'd never even heard of this kid and he's snuck to the top of every draft board.

Need to do me some scouting.

Athletic St. Louis kid who went to Oak Hill.

Probably KU's best option on offense, and plays ok if not good defense.

Somebody's getting a player here.

This dude is Ray Allen. People thought it was Brad Beal last year, but it's this kid.

re: Ben McLemore - SG - Kansas

He disappeared pretty good vs Oklahoma State 7pts on 25% shooting. He looked really timid and not willing to take over the game when his team needed him. He's only a freshman, but Marcus Smart doesn't seem to have that problem.

re: Ben McLemore - SG - Kansas

He is absolutely murdering West Virginia. 31 points on 12 shots with 10 minutes left in the game. It's a really special guard to go #1 overall, but this guy is doing everything he can to be in that group.

Great player. Better at home than road games. Most says he is a frosh but as a player yes but he redshirted first year and he was un system already think that helped him a lot. He said if he is not in hrdship he would stay ku one more year

Yeah, another guy that's almost certainly #1, no worse than #2, who would, in all likelihood, trail guys like Wiggins and Harrison next year, and be lucky to be picked #4.

Re: Ben McLemore - SG - Kansas

I think McLemore needs another season in college, but I wouldn't stay if I were him. His skills look very translatable, but I wouldn't take him 1st overall. Wouldn't it be great to have that Raptors pick jump super high and somehow the Thunder under up taking McLemore?

Re: Ben McLemore - SG - Kansas

People criticize him a little for being passive, but he started next to four seniors. I thought he got an appropriate number of touches. Some NBA fans who don't watch a lot of college basketball expect every highly touted prospect to look like Michael Jordan dominating a bunch of amateurs. It doesn't work that way.

Don't think there's anything for him left to learn in college

Re: Ben McLemore - SG - Kansas

He could stand to improve his play in the clutch, and could also benefit from being the leader of a team. If he returned, he would not only be clearly their best player, but he would also probably be asked to step up as a captain. Cultivating that mentality could greatly benefit his game.

I agree he should leave though, he's in contention to be 1st overall pick and is basically a lock to go at worst Top 2.
