2013 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Ben McLemore


Position: Shooting Guard

Size: 6-5, 195

School: Kansas, Freshman


Strengths:
  • Athleticism
  • Explosive at the rim
  • Three-point range
  • Catch and shoot ability
  • Pretty outside stroke
  • Pullup jumper
  • Moves well off the ball
  • Plays under control
  • Impressive shot blocker for his position
  • Rebounds well for a two guard




  • Weaknesses:
  • Ball handling needs to improve
  • Frame needs to fill out


  • Summary: There aren't many holes to McLemore's game, which is why he has emerged as a legitimate candidate for the top overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. McLemore is a dynamic offensive threat from beyond the arc or using his athleticism at the rim. He has all the tools to be a complete shooting guard at the next level.

    Player Comparison: O.J. Mayo. Mayo was highly touted coming out of USC and is a more-than-capable scorer from everywhere on the floor. Mayo is better at creating off the bounce, but McLemore can match his explosiveness at the rim and pure outside shot. I think McLemore has a higher ceiling than what Mayo has shown thus far in the league, but they have a lot of similarities.
