An NBA scout says Ben McLemore will be a better version of Ray Allen Of course the NBA scout couldn’t attach his name to this statement based on NBA rules, but it’s worth noting that at least one scout believes that 20 year-old, Ben McLemore is going to be one hell of a player. Speaking on condition of anonymity this particular scout claims McLemore will be a better version of probable future Hall of Fame guard, Ray Allen. Via Gary Bedore/KU Sports: “McLemore and (Nerlens) Noel (6-11 freshman, Kentucky) will go 1-2 in the draft. Noel will probably be the No. 1 pick despite his injury,” an NBA talent evaluator who cannot reveal his identity (in accordance with NBA rules) told the Journal-World. “McLemore is a better version of Ray Allen. He will play shooting guard the way it is supposed to be played,” the talent evaluator said. “The only negative to his game is sometimes he defers. He could definitely use another year in college to learn to take over games. “Obviously, he had to go (pro),” the scout quickly added. “The draft is only about potential now.” The anonymous NBA scout also stated that if high school stud, Andrew Wiggins were allowed to declare for the NBA draft this year, he would be the overall number one pick. In what many scouts are projecting to be a very weak draft class, it may be worth taking a gamble on McLemore number one if only to try to put your team in position to draft Wiggins next season. However, that may not go over well with your fan base.   The post NBA scout says Ben McLemore is a better version of Ray Allen appeared first on Pass The Pill - Kings of Hoops.
