NBA Trade Rumors will run rampant over the next couple of days. Today’s lunch time rumor involves the Cleveland Cavaliers’ Jarrett Jack to the Sacramento Kings for Ben McLemore as the Kings look for a point guard to run the show.

McLemore isn’t having the kind of season that many expected from the hot shooting rookie. The Kings have been bringing in veterans to balance out their youth movement. Adding Derek Williams and Rudy Gay to go with DeMarcus Cousins leaves them missing a guard to run the show. Jack isn’t a traditional point guard but his veteran presence could stabilize the team.
For the Cavaliers adding McLemore would add youth but also a great shooting stroke to go along with the driving ability of Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters. A second unit of Waiters at the point with McLemore setting up at the 3 point line would be great. The Cavs may have to add a future first or a couple second round picks to make this trade happen but adding shooting is a big need for the team.
Do you think this trade is even realistic? Would you have interest in it? How much would you be willing to add to Jack to get McLemore?
