Courtney Lee, SG

Despite his status as an ideal complementary shooting guard, Lee has bounced around from team-to-team during his eight season career.

His salary is below-market for a starting shooting guard, though he’ll be replacing Arron Afflalo, who was practically begged to opt out of his contract.


Recognized as a ‘3 and D’ wing, Lee is a well-rounded quality vet who knows how to succeed in the Association. He plays tough defense, and knows how to hit an open shot from beyond the arc.

Lee is very inconsistent, and not an imposing physical specimen by any stretch. He could be a better rebounder, and hasn’t posted any flashy stats at the highest level.
