The Toronto Raptors will sign shooting guard Ben McLemore to a 10-day contract, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.
McLemore was waived by the Sacramento Kings and still must clear waivers before the deal is official.
McLemore, 25, got lost in the shuffle with the Kings for a second time. The former No. 7 overall draft pick (2013) spent last season with the Grizzlies before returning to the franchise that drafted him in a trade.
The Raptors had just 10 players after Thursday’s trade deadline. They also have signed Malcolm Miller to a 10-day contract.
McLemore is 6-foot-5 and averaging just 3.9 points in 8.3 minutes per game this season. He averaged a career-high 12.1 points in 2014-15, when he started all 82 games for the Kings.
