Is there an arms race in the Eastern Conference of the NBA?
According to Shams Charania, the Toronto Raptors are planning to sign Ben McLemore to a 10-day contract after he clears waivers.
In 2018-19, McLemore has played in 19 games with the Sacramento Kings, averaging 3.9 points per game. He is a career 35% three-point shooter and shot 17-41 (42%) from deep in 19 games with the Kings this season. His addition would bring the Raptors roster to 12 players.
He was drafted by the Kings in the first round (seventh overall) of the 2013 NBA draft.
The 25-year-old has spent five out of his six NBA seasons with the Kings, which included a one-year stint with the Memphis Grizzlies in 2017-18.
The Raptors also signed Malcolm Miller to a 10-day deal Friday and acquired Marc Gasol at the trade deadline.
