Report: Kings Looking to Move Up for Ben McLemore

Jamie Squire

Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Kings are being aggressive in trying to move up in the draft with the likely target being Kansas Guard Ben McLemore.

The Kings haven't really been in any discussions or rumors to date to move up in the draft. Everything we've heard was about the possibility of them moving down. Now however, Adrian Wojnarowski reports something different:

McLemore has been rumored to go anywhere from 2 to 6, as reports of poor workouts and a troubling off-court situation have seemingly lowered his draft stock. Still, he's an intriguing talent, as he's both one of the better athletes and better shooters in this year's draft. He'd also give the Kings a great player at SG if Tyreke Evans is not retained.

I'm unsure what exactly it would take for the Kings to move up from the 7 spot to get someone like McLemore. There may even be a tiny possibility McLemore would drop down to 7 (I highly doubt it).

The draft begins in just a few hours. Get excited.

UPDATE:

Sam Amick and James Ham are both hearing rumblings of the Kings doing something big.
