NBA GMs think highly of Ben McLemore in new poll

The Kings had three players mentioned in the 12th annual NBA general manager survey on

Rookie guard Ben McLemore tied for third with 10 percent of the votes for which rookie would be the best player in five years (Orlando's Victor Oladipo was first).

McLemore received seven votes (13.8%) to finish second in voting for which player was the biggest steal of the draft behind Boston's Kelly Olynyk.

Greivis Vasquez received votes for being among the NBA's best passers (behind Chris Paul) and a player that makes the most out of his natural ability along with Chuck Hayes.

In the biggest surprise to me, the Kings also received at least one vote as the most fun team to watch.

I'm assuming votes on that came from someone that remembers last season's game at Miami or anticipates some fun this season.

Below are some more results or you can go to for full results.

Miami Heat - NBA Champion (75.9% of the vote)
LeBron James, Miami - Kia NBA Most Valuable Player (69%)
Victor Oladipo, Orlando - Kia NBA Rookie of the Year (80%)
Detroit Pistons - Most Improved Team (16.7%)
Chicago - Best Defensive Team (43.3%)
Nets-Celtics trade / Andre Iguodala to Golden State - Most Surprising Offseason Move (21.4%)
Tony Parker, San Antonio - Best International Player (53.3%)
Chauncey Billups, Detroit - Active player who would make the best head coach (32.1%)
