Courtney Lee impresses in summer league action

The Magic finished their summer league schedule this past week at 2-3, but first round draftee Courtney Lee had an impressive week. In the five games, he averaged 20.2 ppg (with a high game of 30 pts) on 43.7% FG shooting, including 8 of 17 (47.1%) on 3 pt FGs. From the free throw line, he was an outstanding 31 of 34 (91.2%).

Center Marcin Gortat averaged 12.8 ppg and 8.6 rebounds in the five games, and PF James Augustine averaged 7.8 ppg and 6.2 rebounds.

    I watched some of the action this week and lee was as good as advertised,he plays a very mature style of basketball and is going to be a silent killer when he's on the floor because he can score from anywhere,plus he can handle the ball and i suspect that otis and svg want to see him get a look at some point guard come training camp. Otis said during the draft that he viewed some tape of courntney's sophomore year,at that time courtney had to play the point because their PG got hurt,he finished the year at PG and was very solid with the ball in his hands. He looks more like about 6ft4 probably about eye to eye with keith,not as big physically as keith but by no means small at all. If courtney can play some PG effectively in training camp that will just add to the versatility of our team,can you imagine courtney and keith in the back-court off the bench at times,i dont know if you cant get any better defensively at both positions while being accurate from three on the other end at both positions.

    Summer League means nothing if it did then Redick would have been the starter last season. Instead Redick was a bench warmer for the entire season.
    So take a large grain of salt about how Lee performed in Summer League and hope that he continues to learn how to fit his game in the NBA. Because we all know that what you did in college does not mean it will translate into a pro career.

    sharpshooter JJ REDICK -lest we forget- lead the NBA summer league in scoring last summer (2007) . It had apparently little impact of SVG rewarding him with minutes.
