Report: Kings GM Denies Shopping Ben McLemore

Kings deny McLemore trade rumors.

Rumors circulated yesterday that Sacramento offered Boston Isaiah Thomas, Ben McLemore and draft picks for Rajon Rondo. 

Kings general manager Pete D’Alessandro killed those whispers today.

“So, I’m standing here today and I’m saying Ben McLemore is a guy that we have not put in deals. He’s a guy that we love here. “So, sources? I think I’m a source. We haven’t put Ben in anything,” he continued. “We look at Ben as a major part of what we’re doing long-term.”

Sacramento is all in on their 2013 lottery pick for now.
