Former Sacramento Kings shooting guard Ben McLemore is among 23 players who will participate in the Toronto Raptors’ free-agent minicamp, scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday at the team’s practice facility.
McLemore, 26, was selected by the Kings with the seventh overall pick in the 2013 draft. He has also spent time with the Memphis Grizzlies. He was waived by the Kings in February.
Overall, McLemore has compiled career averages of 8.8 points and 2.5 rebounds, shooting 42 percent from the floor.
Joining McLemore as part of the two-day audition: Point guard Cameron Payne and center Justin Patton. Like McLemore, both Payne and Patton are former first-round picks.
Payne, 24, has spent time with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Chicago Bulls and Cleveland Cavaliers. Patton, 21, has played in a combined four career games in two seasons overall with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Philadelphia 76ers.
Vladimir Brodziansky (Slovakia), Nicolas Brussino (Argentina), Xavier Cooks (Australia) and Egidijus Mockevicius (Lithuania) are four international players who are scheduled to participate.
The Raptors hold a 3-2 series advantage over the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals. Game 6 is slated for Thursday night in Oakland, Calif.
