Temple averaged 8.4 points in 25 minutes per game for the Kings last season.

Sacramento is finalizing a trade to send Garrett Temple to Memphis in exchange for Ben McLemore, Deyonta Davis and cash, according to Adrian Wojnarowski‏ of ESPN.

The Kings will gain an extra $1 million in cap room from the deal, giving them $20.5 million, which is easily the most in the National Basketball Association. It was his second season in Sacramento, on top of a 10-day contract he spent there in 2010.

Liverpool's third choice keeper, Danny Ward has agreed a deal to join Leicester City worth around £12m. But the expected arrival of Alisson in a deal worth €75 million has changed the landscape considerably.

The Kings will get back their former draft prospect Ben McLemore, who had a relatively sour stint with the Grizzlies, struggling to adapt to yet another losing team, which lacked the leadership of Mike Conley Jr. and Marc Gasol. Davis will join the crowded frontcourt of Kings that features second overall pick Marvin Bagley III, Skal Labissiere, Harry Giles, and Willie Cauley-Stein.

McLemore's return to Sacramento should not feel all that familiar. He has career averages of 9.1 points and 2.6 rebounds in 24.5 minutes per game.

Bleacher Report's Joseph Zucker believes that the Grizzlies have clearly won the trade.

Temple has been a solid wing for the last few seasons, making him a valuable asset that fits the mold of the Grizzlies' Grit N' Grind culture, which they have so desperately hoped to regain. He played for Sacramento until signing a free-agent deal with Memphis in 2017. Memphis is looking to return to the playoffs after missing last year's edition.
