Paris Lee is a tough, gritty point guard that may be one of the best defenders at his position in this draft class. He is a really agile player that moves his feet very well, and he is a ball hawk that can rack up steals.
Plus, he also is a fairly good offensive player. He shoots the ball well, and he is a table-setter that can effectively run the team. Lee may not be the most dynamic player on offense, but he is a smart player that can make solid plays on both ends of the floor, which could help him make a team’s roster in the NBA.
