The veteran potential of Courtney Lee

He was the 22nd pick in the 2008 draft and has carved out a very solid 11-year NBA career. As recently as 2017-18, he averaged 12 points and shot better than 40 percent from the 3-point arc.

Of course, that was with the Knicks, who weren’t exactly world-beaters.

In his rookie season, he was a starter for the Orlando Magic that reached the NBA finals, losing to the Lakers in five games. They beat a Cleveland team led by LeBron James that season.

In between, Lee earned a reputation as a respected shooting guard who could impact games at both ends of the court.
