The Sacramento Kings have picked up the 2015-16 option on guard Ben McLemore's contract.

General manager Pete D'Alessandro announced the move Sunday. McLemore averaged 8.8 points and 2.9 rebounds in 26.7 minutes last season as a rookie. McLemore was picked seventh overall by Sacramento in the 2013 draft.

The Kings also waived center Sim Bhullar, guard Deonte Burton and forward David Wear to reduce their roster to 15 players.
