The Sacramento Kings today signed first-round draft pick Ben McLemore to a contract, according to Kings General Manager Pete D’Alessandro. Sacramento selected McLemore with the seventh-overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. Per team policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed. An early entry candidate, the 6-5, 195-pound guard averaged 15.9 points (.495 FG%, .420 3pt%, .870 FT%), 5.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steals, and 32.2 minutes per game in 37 appearances for the Jayhawks last season. McLemore set KU freshman records in scoring (third in the Big 12) and free-throw percentage, while earning Second-Team All-America honors by the AP, NABC, and USBWA. A three-time Big 12 Rookie of the Week, the standout guard became only the second Jayhawk in the 17-year history of the Big 12 to win both awards in the same season.
