Taken seventh overall in the 2013 NBA Draft by the Sacramento Kings, McLemore has averaged 8.8 points and 2.5 rebounds per game in six NBA seasons while shooting 41.7 percent from the floor. He has had two stints with the Kings, including last season, when he averaged only 3.9 in 19 games as a reserve.

After joining the Memphis Grizzlies on a two-year, $10.7 million deal when the Kings declined his option, he averaged 7.5 points and 2.5 rebounds over 56 games (17 starts) in the 2017-18 season.
