Lakers complete roster with veteran McLemore 

The Los Angeles Lakers signed shooting guard Ben McLemore to fill their final open roster spot, the team announced on Tuesday night.

The eight-year veteran was released by the Houston Rockets over the weekend, becoming a free agent.

McLemore will be another candidate to provide 3-point shooting on the Lakers’ wing. The No. 7 pick in the 2013 NBA draft is a career 36.3% 3-point shooter, but he hit 40.2% from distance combined during the 2018-19 season with the Sacramento Kings (41.5%) and the 2019-20 season with Houston (40%).

McLemore has averaged 8.9 points and 2.4 rebounds per game in his eight NBA seasons.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
