Team Klutch Sports! Ben McLemore signs with Lakers
The Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to sign guard Ben McLemore for the rest of the season, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.
McLemore becomes the sixth Laker who is currently represented by Klutch Sports by agent Rich Paul — the other five are LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Montrezl Harrell, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, and Talen Horton-Tucker.
McLemore was released last by the Houston Rockets after spending two seasons with the franchise.
The eight-year veteran will be able to utilize his three-point shooting with the Lakers, especially when James returns from his injury.
McLemore is a career 36.3 percent 3-point shooter, but he hit 40.2% from distance combined during the 2018-19 season with Sacramento and the 2019-20 season with Houston, according to Associated Press.
