Lee has ideal size and energy as a forward. He will run the floor, rebound and can finish versus contact in the paint.

Lee is a solid frontline defender. He is active and showed vocal leadership while on the court. On the offensive end he showed soft touch on the jumper while possessing footwork on the pivot. He averaged 8 points and 7 rebounds per game. However, his range is limited making only 1/7 from beyond the arc.

Lee’s activity was on display on both ends of the hardwood. He played hard once again here against Marques Bolden and Schneider Herard. Lee’s specialty is his energy but he did show touch on his 15 footer here.

Lee is a power forward with a good build. His calling card is to play hard, rebound and finish around the bucket. I would not classify him as an exceptional athlete, but he is a good one with very good activity. He will contest shots on the defensive end and provide helpside in the lane. He has a tendency to do too much at times on the offensive end. In one particular game he tried to make high degree of difficulty plays, which was not a very good look.

Lee’s calling card is his activity. He plays the game hard and with consistency. He flushed a mean dunk in transition showing bounce in his legs. At times, Lee tried to do too much with the basketball in his hands even attempting to lead the fast break in this elite setting. When he outlets the ball and runs the floor, good things tend to happen. We’ve upgraded him to a 4.5 rating.

Location: Nike Elite 100 Camp (St. Louis, Mo.)

Lee is a 4 player with a solid build. We didn’t see a specialty but he was consistent throughout the camp. More than anything, Lee was in the right place at the right time. He took a tough 12 footer in the paint.
