Hearing the name Ben McLemore is enough to make a Sacramento Kings fan cringe. His time in Sacramento did not amount to the lofty expectations that were initially associated with the swingman when the Kings drafted him with the seventh pick in the 2013 NBA draft.
McLemore was a highly touted prospect coming out of high school, playing his senior year ball at the prestigious Oak Hill Academy in Virginia, a school that produced the likes of Kevin Duranr, Carmelo Anthony and Rajon Rondo. McLemore was dismissed from the team midseason, and finished out his high school days at Christian Life Center in Texas. Ranked as a four star recruit, he moved from one prestigious pro factory to the next, committing to play for Kansas.
