Rockets Sign free agent Ben McLemore

Posted: July 23, 2019 -- 12:02 p.m. CT

Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey announced today the team has signed free agent guard Ben McLemore. Per Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium, the deal is a partially guaranteed 2 years deal.

McLemore (6'5", 195) was originally the seventh overall pick by Sacramento in the 2013 NBA Draft. In 368 career games with 233 starts, he has averaged 8.8 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 1.1 assists in 23.7 minutes per game. Over the past three seasons, McLemore shot 37.0% from 3-point range while playing for Sacramento and Memphis.

McLemore finished his senior year of high school at Christian Life Center Academy, which at the time was located in Humble, TX.
