Even though the Wizards have established their backcourt with John Wall and Bradley Beal, NBA teams have started to display smaller lineups with three guard sets, so adding Ben McLemore wouldn’t hurt the team as much as people would think.

The Wizards were the worst offensive team in the league last season and adding someone who can put the ball in the basket during this offseason is crucial. The best way to add players who are great at one specific area of the game is through the draft. With that said, Ben McLemore is considered one of the best shooters in the draft, which is certainly an area the Wizards are hoping to improve upon.

Although scouts love to point out McLemore’s ability to shoot the ball, he’s also one of the most dynamic athletes in the draft, which could certainly help John Wall out in transition. One of McLemore’s glaring weaknesses is handling the ball and creating for himself off the dribble, but he wouldn’t have to worry much about that, since John Wall will ultimately be the primary ball handler.

If he’s on the board and the Wizards decide to take McLemore, I wouldn’t be ridiculously disappointed, even though I won’t list him as a the top fit. It’s tough to pass on a guy who has the potential and talent to become an All-Star.
