Saben Lee is a speedy, skilled playmaker that excels at attacking the basket to garner scores and assists for his team.  He is a player that can put up points in a hurry, and he can finish plays above the rim.  He will need to improve his jump shot and defensive skills, but he could potentially be a second round pick in the 2020 draft.
