NYK Shooting Guard: 6’5, 200 lbs; 10th year, Western Kentucky

NBA Role: two-way guard Salty DOG

Courtney Lee is a spot-starting, two-way wing – steady across the board; locks in and really defends on the perimeter, spaces the floor and competes hard; won’t explode for 30 but usually plays tough D and snipes treys when left open; does most of his work from behind the arc; consistently consistent – starting or coming off the pine, Lee is always good for around 10-12 points, a few caroms and assists; gets traded at the deadline A LOT; Coach Hornacek’s starting two – Lee is a solid daily fantasy filler; still haunted by missing the game-winning lay-up in Game 2 of the 2009 NBA Finals? (probably not, stop bringing up old s***)
