Courtney Lee is currently experiencing the bump in play that comes with being traded to a new team. It happened to Derrick Williams. It happened to Kevin Martin. These players don’t magically get any better. I guess their roles increase, given that a team desired them enough to acquire them. And then after a few games their new team realizes that the player isn’t that great and the player reverts to his normal quality of play. Not saying it’s gonna happen with Lee, but… it’s probably gonna happen with Lee.
He’s has always been a middling player. Not too bad. Can make some threes. But it’s never good when your best season was your first one. And let’s not forget that he was the third best scorer on that horrible 09 Nets team. That kind of stink never comes off. Can he turn his career around in Memphis? The Grizz need perimeter shooting in a bad way. Lee is a perimeter shooter. A match made in heaven, right?
