Kings Trading Garrett Temple to Grizzlies; Ben McLemore Reportedly Returning

The Kings are making a move.

Sacramento is finalizing a trade that will send forward Garrett Temple to the Grizzlies, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Tuesday, citing sources.

NBC Sports Bay Area's James Ham confirmed that Temple has been informed by the Kings that he is on his way to the Grizzlies.

In return, the Kings will receive guard Ben McLemore, center Deyonta Davis and cash.

Temple played the last two seasons in Sacramento. Last year, he averaged 8.4 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 65 games (35 starts).

He is entering the final year of the three-year, $24 million contract that he signed with the Kings in the summer of 2016.

McLemore, who averaged 7.5 points over 56 games for the Grizzlies last season, spent his first four seasons in Sacramento after the Kings selected him seventh overall in 2013. He will earn $5,460,000 next season and then become an unrestricted free agent.

Davis was the 31st overall pick in the 2016 draft out of Michigan State. The 21-year old appeared in 62 games last year, averaging 5.8 points and 4.0 rebounds.
