More on Marcus Lee

AK Murthy writes about Marcus Lee: "Lee, who has seen his stock rise in recent months, showed why scouts expect him to be a force down the line. A rangy forward with good length, Lee runs the court like a deer and shows great timing on offensive putbacks and defensive challenges. With his combination of size, speed, and athleticism, Lee could be a very effective player in an uptempo style of play. His defensive prowess and mobility at the 4 are reminiscent of Kenyon Martin circa 2000.

What's holding Lee from being one of the elite prospects in his class are a lack of offensive ability and physical strength. These issues aren't cause for much concern, though, as most players his age similarly need strength and very few of his peers have go-to post moves. With the right conditioning and weight training program Lee could fill out nicely over the next few years, and if he develops his offensive game, he could break through to the upper echelon of the 2013 class."

We don't want to see a wasted collegiate freshman season for Lee so here's hoping the weight and strength come sooner than later.
