Courtney Lee E-mail

Strengths: Has legit three point range with nice shooting mechanics that he can make with regularity … Decently built shooting guard who has improved greatly with his added upper body strength … Despite being his team’s primary scorer, he is an unselfish player who will look to pass if teammates are open … Does a great job of taking one or two dribbles to lull his defender to sleep before pulling up for the jump shot … Excellent finisher in transition thanks to his ability to convert a great deal of difficult shots in the lane with his body control and creativity … Will use a number of floaters and lay-ups off the glass to convert plays in traffic … Unlike many players, Lee understands how to utilize the mid-range - he does not get single minded with straight three point shooting and slashing … Defensively, he uses his quick hands to disrupt passing lanes for steals … Has the ability to create scoring for himself thanks to his solid first step that allows for some level of separation from his defender … Quick release on his jumper makes Lee very proficient in catch and shoot situations … Humble player with a great work ethic to not only improve, but is also coachable … Solid free throw shooter … Unlike situations in the past, Lee now has the body strength to finish after contact occurs … Underrated ball handler who has no problem bringing the ball up the court … Has improved over last year at drawing contact for free throw opportunities … Patient player who allows the game to come to him …

Weaknesses: His level of competition gives the false impression that Lee is athletically superior, which is far from true and will further be exposed at the NBA level … Lacks the explosiveness to separate himself from his defender after his initial first step - this enables defenders to recover and follow Lee into the lane … Has a habit of standing around instead of moving without the ball … Perimeter defense is just slightly above average at best and will need some refinement, as his foot speed and aggressiveness will limit his effectiveness … Gets a great deal of credit for being able to create off the dribble, but Lee’s moves are a bit unorthodox and will lead some to question if he will be able to pull-off these shots against NBA guards who are athletically and physically advanced … Perimeter shooting can go through periods of inconsistency when creating off the dribble from mid-range … All around game has improved considerably from last year, but he doesn’t excel in any one are - while he is a decent passer and rebounder, his court vision and lack of explosiveness could limit his effectiveness … Has cut down on his turnovers this year, but must continue to protect the ball better and not be careless or rush himself offensively … From a potential standpoint, Lee is approaching his ceiling …
