New York Knicks: Intriguing Free Agent Two-Way Players

4. Courtney Lee, SG, Charlotte Hornets

Courtney Lee was such a good three-and-D wing for the Grizzlies that Ian Levy of Nylon Calculus wrote a column about his impact on the franchise after the trade to the Hornets.

Lee’s size on the wing and physical defense would be a welcome addition to a Knicks’ team that was last in steals and opponent’s turnover percentage.

A large majority of Lee’s three-point FGAs were off the catch, and rightfully so, he made them at a 40.3% clip. But he’s more than just a three point shooter.

Lee made 45.8% of his two-point shots that were greater than 16 feet and 42.5% on pull ups.

He showed off his full arsenal against the Suns, disrupting passes, pulling up for jumpers, and nailing threes. Lee would be an asset for coach Hornacek on both ends of the court.

Lee’s older than Bazemore, Batum, and Crabbe, and he wouldn’t be the future at the shooting guard position but he’s a nice role player.
