The Sacramento Kings waived shooting guard Ben McLemore following their moves at Thursday's trade deadline.

According to The Athletic's Shams Charania, the Toronto Raptors have plans to sign the 25-year-old to a 10-day contract once he clears waivers.

McLemore appeared in 19 games for the Kings this season, posting 3.9 points per game on 41.5 percent shooting from 3-point range (on 41 attempts). He's averaging 8.8 points per game in his NBA career on 35.3 percent shooting from distance.

As TSN's Josh Lewenberg noted, the former No. 7 overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft is now the highest drafted player and the only lottery pick on the Raptors' roster.
