I think he would be a good addition for Guard depth. Not a can't miss FA, but one that could help a contender.

I wonder what type of money he is seeking?Mle,if so he would be a great pick up for Bulls/Hawks/Mavs/Pacers.

I've noticed you liked him, hes a good piece but about undersized. Though I guess that doesn't matter now that Kobe is almost done.

clippers should go after him, better fit for them than ray or crawford

wouldnt mind the heat looking into him either.

Best corner 3 point shooter in NBA having hit 50 of 102 last season. Also a superb defender man. Remember last year when he guarded CP3 in the second half of one of the games? CP3 couldn't even get up a shot which shocked me. So top tier 3 point shooter and perimeter defender.. well worth it. :clap:

I believe he is talking about defense. Kobe in his old age plays some mighty "self defense".

How is he "overrated"? That's just a flat out dumb thing to say. He's a good defender, rebounder, has good handles, a very good shooter, athletic as hell.

His defense is overrated and somewhat inconsistent. Also doesn't use his athleticism as much as he should.

If he had the work ethic he could have carved out an outside shooting Tony Allen niche in this league and priced himself worth the full MLE. But who knows, there are GMs stupid enough to pay him that now probably.

Raptors probably offer him 5 years 60 mill..... Just sayin

He was always a free agent, wasn't he? He's just unrestricted now.

TeamSeattle
07-03-2012, 08:15 PM
Well Lee is quick and athletic but he is still undersized for a 2 guard. He jacks up shots early in the shot clock, and tends to play outside of the offense at times to get his numbers. There is a reason guys like this bounce around to all these teams.

Clippersfan86
07-03-2012, 08:17 PM
Get him to the Clippers and he won't be bounced around anymore. 26 years old can grow with CP3+Griffin+DJ+Bledsoe?

Chronz
07-03-2012, 08:19 PM
What?

Kobe typically abuses smaller defenders, but hes declining so worrying about having a smaller 2-guard isnt such a concern anymore. And aside from Kobe which oversized 2-guard is on a western contender? None of them have post games to really abuse smaller guys.

Well to be fair, Tony Allen wasnt even Tony Allen until a few years ago. At one point he was Trick or Treat Tony Allen, so he was just as inconsistent.

This guy has some defensive promise and can space the floor. I wish he had a few more inches on him but overall hes capable of being a solid contributor for a contender.

God I hope Orlando is all-in on him after Otis Smith traded him for Vince.

I'd love to see him on the Bulls..

he will be getting offers of at least full mle...probably aaron aflalo type deal, he would help the bulls for sure

overrated.

Underrated. Two-way player who Orlando should have never let go. He's never going to be a star but he's a great addition to a team that has stars and needs to cover the 2. Hardworker with a nice stroke and decent dribble.

It's worth inquiring for the Bulls, though. He's not a great SG but he's a good one and can shoot the three. Would be a better and younger option than retaining Korver.

I don't understand why the Pacers keep chasing SGs...

every team in the NBA would love to get him, and probably half of them will contact him, probably he will get a little overpayed like everyone in these days

yeah, Adelman just got a semi and the Wolves will chase him hard to put him in the corner to hit three's.

Always was a huge fan of Courtney Lee Magic not keeping him was a mistake. Hell of a role player great defense, great shooting and does everything else decent enough.

The bulls can offer the full mid level exception for lee.

He's a solid perimeter defender that could provide some good minutes on the right team.

I would love him on the lakers. They need shooters but only if the price is right. Someone will over pay him though. He would probably be one of the lakers best bench players if they decide to go after him.

Grizzlies are gonna overpaid him :drunk:

Sadly we have to wait for Boston knicks Miami and clippers to get their players first and we get the 4rd or 5th wave no one wants to come to memphis.:cricket:

it's kind of funny that he went from being in the nba finals to being on a 12-70 team.

Kind of hoping the Wolves do not get him. Too much Houston influence already w/ Buddinger.

Some of you are idiots for saying "Who?" and essentially saying he sucks.

I'd love to have him on my 76ers... really could use him as a back up.
