The Sacramento Kings have selected Ben McLemore with the No. 7 pick in the NBA draft.

Anthony Bennett from UNLV was selected No. 1 by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Kings pick again in the second round with the 36th pick.

Miami Heat star LeBron James praised the Kings pick on Twitter. The former Cleveland Cavalier player said McLemore would be a good fit with Kings coach Mike Malone and assistant Chris Jent.

Malone was an assistant with Cleveland while James played there, and Jent was the director of player personnel for the Cavaliers from 2006 to 2008
