NBA ROLE: JUMP-SHOOTING WING

 

Ben McLemore’s still building momentum as a consistent NBA wing – former #7 overall pick (2013); more of a shooter than anything else (beautiful mechanics on his J, textbook release), McLemore is working to earn a full-time role*; more effective scoring off the dribble (has trouble converting non-dunks/layups around the rim) and playing tougher wing defense would round out Ben’s game; landed w/ Rockets (2019) – it’s important for McLemore to earn a rotational role and accept the responsibility of bringing energy, solid defense & long bombs in the second unit

 

*needs to hone in on curl scoring – we already know McLemore can make curl threes – adding a midrange J/extra pass (off a brush screen) could widen his attack
