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.

Since McLemore was waived on Thursday, he will be eligible to be signed by the Raptors on Saturday, filling their final open roster spot.
