McLemore will have more consistent nights than Wes and KCP. I'm calling it now. I honestly think we got a steal here. McLemore's shooting form is beautiful to watch. Plus he played extremely well next to Harden. Think about McLemore playing with Bron. He'll be our sniper this season.

Welcome to the Lakers Ben. Better fix that .10 cent defense or Vogel wont let you see the light of day

Maybe he can be our three-point version of the Shannon Brown pick up . . . without the sleeping with teammates' girls aspect.

Thought they would be looking more at someone who could help defend on the perimeter.

No one who can guard the perimeter ever hits the buyout market. They're always traded for at least a 2nd round.

There was no one who we could have signed who we can throw against the Nets, Clippers or Nuggets. Those guys are rare.

solid pickup, def. nothing to get excited about but I can see him help out on nights Wes, KCP, THT and Caruso are looking rough (which isn't very uncommon at all) and provide some quick 3's. He'll be getting wide open looks again even without Lebron and AD back so it will be interesting if he regains the shooting stroke. He's also only 28 so if he works out at all he can be reupped cheap for next season as well for some added deep depth ala Cook.

Now they are pretty much set with McKinnie as the emergency 3&d guy but if a better player becomes available at the last second they can replace McKinnie with him still.

Dre and McLemore as buyouts is not too bad and it could been muchhhh worse.

You can also substitute these names on that blank line ^:

- Reggie Bullock
- Mike Muscala
- Danny Green
- Wes Matthews
- JR Smith

He shot 40% from 3 last year.. and basically has been a good 3 pt shooter during his time in the NBA.

WTH?

Whoever put together these highlights is definitely trolling, 3 out of 4 of the highlights is McLemore just passing to other players making a 3.

Yeah just like DG, Quinn Cook, Muscala, Bullock and Wes before they became a Laker

And 33% this year wich happen to be the time we get him. And he's a career 36% shooter.

Couple glimpses of short roll ability since Vogel likes running P&R with Bron and a guard.

Ben is pretty athletic, once compared to Ray Allen in the draft profile. If he can get his 40% clip the last 2 season on 3pts% he can stick around for a while. He is still in his prime just turned 28 yrs old. Ill be happy with a JR smith production during his time in Cleveland.

Solid pickup from the bargain bin. No complaints here.

Got a feeling he will actually find his shot again.
