I don't think Simmons or Ingram is some kind of franchise savior. Simmons is a great fit as a 4 in the modern NBA though because he can guard inside and on the perimeter, rebound, handle the ball like a guard, and score inside. Even if he never develops a reliable jumper, he is still going to be a very valuable player. I see him as a better version of Draymond Green who can create offense on his own much better than Green.
Never came close to reaching potential in three years at UCLA
Decision making on offensive end
Is he a point guard or shooting guard?
Summary: Lee's decision to enter the 2011 NBA Draft is surprising since he is not a first-round prospect. He had a very underwhleming career at UCLA like many Ben Howland-coached guards have, which leads some to believe that his best basketball is ahead of him. Until he develops a consistent offensive game, he will have to find niche in the league as a defender since he was one of the best in college basketball.
Player Comparison: Shannon Brown. Brown struggled to find his spot in the NBA until two years ago with the Lakers. A terrific athlete who can play either guard spot, Brown is not an outside threat but at his best when he is out and running. He is also a more than capable defender. All these descriptions fit Lee's strengths and weaknesses, and if he has to follow a career path, Brown's is not a bad place to start.
