At this point, it will be interesting to see what the Rockets intend to do with guard Avery Bradley and power forward Kelly Olynyk, recently acquired in the Victor Oladipo trade with the Miami Heat. Both played well in Friday’s loss to the Boston Celtics.
McLemore, 28, is averaging 7.4 points and 2.1 rebounds. While he never lived up to expectations as a lottery pick back in 2013, he is a solid veteran off the bench, offering the constant threat of perimeter shooting.
Per Charania, several contenders are likely to have an interest in McLemore. He will waive to clear waivers, a process that takes 48 hours, before he can sign with a new team.
