Sacramento Kings shooting guard Ben McLemore could be an option for the Golden State Warriors as the trade deadline looms.

The Warriors are still on top of the league, thanks to the team's All-Star-studded lineup. But while there is no denying the vast talent the Warriors possess, they still lack another scoring option off the bench.

With very limited assets, Golden State has little chance of making a move at the deadline. But according to Zach Buckley of Bleacher Report, Ben McLemore could be an option for the Warriors if the high-flying guard would come cheap.

"He's [McLemore] an explosive athlete with great shooting form. That should be enough to draw the attention of the Dubs, who have received inconsistent play from backup shooting guards Ian Clark and Patrick McCaw," Buckley wrote.

According to Chris Mannix of The Vertical, the Kings sending DeMarcus Cousins to the New Orleans Pelicans signals reboot for the team, which could also mean the availability of some players like McLemore.

"Sacramento is determined to restock the franchise with assets, and will be targeting rookie-deal players and draft picks in the coming days, sources told The Vertical. Free agents-to-be Ben McLemore and Darren Collison are available, sources said, as is Arron Afflalo, a solid bench scorer with a manageable contract," Mannix wrote.

McLemore is only averaging 6.6 points a game this season, but his shooting percentage (41.2 percent from the field) and ability to score and defend should see him fit seamlessly in Golden State. More importantly, McLemore's skills would come in handy come playoff time.

Whether the Kings would sell McLemore for a cheap price remains to be seen, but if trading for him won't require the Warriors to give up too much assets, it is something the Dubs should explore.
