The Sacramento Kings will look to add more talent to their roster in the next couple of weeks as the free agency stage of the NBA offseason is now in session.
Looking at the roster right now there are plenty of needs that the Kings could address going forward, and the A Royal Pain squad will follow the franchise along the way by giving our opinions on which players the Kings should or should not take.
Today the A Royal Pain team will analyze Courtney Lee.
Height: 6’5” Weight: 200 lbs.
So far Courtney Lee has spent 8 seasons in the NBA, and throughout his tenure has started a total of 360 games out of the 600 total appearances he has made.
In his overall career so far, Lee has averaged 9.6 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 1.6 assists per game. He also has made 45% of his total shots attempted and has made 38.4% of his total three-point shots.
Right now the Kings do not have a clear option for a starting two-guard on their roster, but with the addition of Lee that could change. Lee has shown throughout his career that he can be a starting guard in the NBA as he has played the role of it for competitive teams in his past.
Lee also fits the niche of being a 3-and-D type player for the Kings as well. He has shown that he can make perimeter shots at a consistent rate and can play good defense as well. He would for sure, excluding injury, be the starting shooting guard for the Kings on opening night.
So Kings fans, we want to hear from you. How would you feel of the reality of the Sacramento Kings actually adding Courtney Lee to their roster for next season?
To express your thoughts on the issue, feel free to partake in our survey that is posted on our Twitter account.
Out of all the two-guards that are available in free agency, Lee may be my favorite one out of the bunch.
In the past few seasons he has spent with the Memphis Grizzlies and Charlotte Hornets (both playoffs teams), Lee was very productive for both squads and would bring a good mix of offense, defense, and experience to a Kings team that would greatly benefit from it.
Kings fans have seen Divac in past be able to pull off some surprising acquisitions off, so hopefully for their sake, he can put some of that magic to work when negotiating with Lee. Can the Kings finally get their ideal shooting guard?
