After a year at the University of Kansas, McLemore bounced for the NBA, going to Sacramento with the 7th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. He’s had an average NBA career, averaging 8.8 PPG, and he’s still in the league today.
These days he’s with his fourth NBA team, the Rockets. He’s made over $25 million in his 8-year career. Not bad for 8.8 PPG. The street where he grew up in St. Louis, Wellston Avenue, has recently been renamed Ben McLemore III Place in his honor.
