Ben Mclemore Trade Scenarios


Cavaliers get: Ben Mclemore and Kosta Koufos
Kings get: Iman Shumpert and Timofey Mozgov

Mclemore has been struggling with the Kings and it has been rumored that the Kings are working with him to find him a new home.  The Cavs have expressed interest in him and Koufos and have also been searching for a new home for Shumpert.  The Kings would greatly benefit from this getting a defensive wing player they desperately need without giving up much.  To make the salaries matchup the teams would swap centers and the Kings get an expiring Mozgov contract.

Timberwolves get: Ben Mclemore
Kings get: Shabazz Muhammad
       or
Timberwolves get: Ben Mclemore, Caron Butler, and James Anderson
Kings get: Kevin Martin, Tayshaun Prince, and Andre Miller

The Twolves have been rumored to be interested in Mclemore for some reason I can't figure out because they have a plethora of young guards.  Anyways, this first scenario here allows the Kings to get a wing player with a lot of potential who is slightly cheaper than Mclemore.  In the second scenario the Kings get Martin, who is a former King and has been on the market for some time.  This is a big upgrade offensively and is a player who could make an instant impact.  This trade took some finagling to get the salaries to be acceptable for trade; so veteran SF's would be swapped and Butler could play the same role as Prince was playing in MIN, then Anderson and Miller would need to be included and the Kings and Karl love Miller.

Nets get: Ben Mclemore, Rudy Gay, and Kosta Koufos
Kings get: Joe Johnson, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, and 2016 1st round pick

This is a total rebuilding move for the Kings.  They have been on the fence about moving Gay and this deal would move him and get a huge $24,000,000 expiring contract back.  The Nets have been trying to move his huge contract and this would probably return them the most talent out of any deal they have been offered.  The Nets could be hesitant about giving up their top 15 pick this year and a rookie who has exceeded expectations. In addition, the Kings could also be hesitant about rebuilding once again as it has been hard to lure free agents,  even with all the cap space they would get here.

2015 NBA Rookie Stat Predictions

Points

1. Jahlil Okafor 15
There is no real scorers on the 76er's and not many big men to take his minutes early so he should get plenty of minutes and opportunities.

2. Karl Anthony Towns 12.9
He will definitely be a starter at that PF or C spot but Pekovic will get a lot of inside points and the team has a 20 point scorer in Martin as well as Wiggins might average 20 this year.

3. Stanley Johnson 11.6
His shot has looked great in Summer League and he will probably start at SF and get a lot of minutes and there are not many scorers in DET.

4. D'Angelo Russell 11.4
Current depth at the guard spot will hinder his scoring with Kobe back, Clarkson starting, and Lou Williams and Nick Young being scorers off the bench.  But, Kobe will miss some games so Russell could get more minutes and points in those games.

5. Frank Kaminsky 10.8
Almost put Prozingas here but Kaminsky will definitely see a lot of time with their current starter as Zeller, Kamisnky will get a good amount of starts and shots.

Assists

1. Emmanuel Mudiay 5.2
This seems like a lot of assists for a backup PG but Lawson will probably be dealt before the season starts and Mudiay will start every game but struggle with his shot and distribute more than he would like to.

2. D'Angelo Russell 4.1
Not totally sure if the minutes will be there at first but he will get at least 3.5 assists, maybe more as the Lakers could go to a three guard starting line up.

3. Delon Wright 3.5
If he fills the same role that Vasquez was last year as the first point guard off the bench and even starting some games next to Lowry he could really see a good amount of minutes and also hand out some dimes.

4. Jerian Grant 3.1
The Knicks are still rebuilding and last year Galloway saw a ton of minutes so Grant will also get a chance to show what he can do and Calderon probably won't be healthy all year.

5. Tyus Jones 3.0
This might be low for Jones because he will see decent playing time behind Rubio and Rubio also has trouble staying healthy so he might even become the starting PG

Rebounds

1. Karl Anthony Towns 9.1
The minutes will be there and he will be going after every board on offense and defense.

2. Jahlil Okafor 8.6
Has every opportunity to have big rebounding and scoring games and will be great on the boards.

3. Myles Turner 6.3
He will get playing time with Hibbert and West now gone, his offense could struggle at first but he will hit the boards pretty hard.

4. Frank Kaminsky 6.0
Will get minutes and maybe will start but big Al will snatch a lot of his rebounds away.

5. Willie Cauley Stein 5.7
Looked like he was going to start next to Cousins but now the Kings have Koufas and they will take a lot of boards away from Stein who wasn't the greatest rebounder to start with at Kentucky.

Blocks

1. Willie Cauley Stein 1.8
His job in Sacramento is to block shots, that is why they got him. So he will come in and make defensive plays like a Birdman type of player to start his career.

2. Karl Anthony Towns 1.7
Being the number one pick he will get the minutes and is a big long player who will work very hard on defense and block some shots.

3. Myles Turner 1.6 
Turner will get his minutes and will have a presence on defense and the boards early on.

4. Jahlil Okafor 1.4
Only averaged 1.4 blocks in college but he will get opportunities playing next to a big shot blocker in Noel.

5. Frank Kaminsky 1.2
Averaged 1.7 blocks his junior season and he is a big body who is getting more athletic.
