McLemore, after starting off well has now been sent to the bench while averaging less than 4 points a game. Shows how great Coach Self is as the players are not NBA difference makers. Embiid will stay another year and be best since Pierce, Wiggins most likely a role player at best.

McLemore's decline seems to have coincided with the trade for Rudy Gay. Gay is a volume shooter and is taking shots away from McLemore. Notice how is FGA have decreased since then.
