NBA Comparison: Marcus Slaughter

Strengths: Marcus Lee has good size for an NBA power forward, listed at 6’11”, 225 pounds ... He runs the floor really well and is very effective when it comes to catching lobs in transition due to his 7’3” wingspan and 35.5” max vertical leap ... He is definitely an NBA level athlete ... After having a more limited role during his three years at Kentucky, Lee embraced having an expanded role at Cal, averaging 11.4 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks per game ... His scoring average was nearly double of what he averaged during his junior year at Kentucky (6.4 points) ... He did a really good job of improving his all-around game, taking more outside jumpers and improving his free throw percentage from 40.3% to 61.2% ... He wasn’t as reliant on dunking the basketball as he had been at Kentucky ... On the defensive end, Lee showed flashes of being a really good post defender, doing a good job of blocking shots and grabbing rebounds ... He has the quickness to guard smaller players out on the perimeter, but the size, length, and overall athletic ability to bother bigger players as well ... He has a very versatile package on both ends of the floor ...

Weaknesses: Will turn 24 in September ... Despite improving his shot and overall offensive game, Lee will still need to convince NBA teams that he hasn't finished getting better ... His outside jumper is developing, but not there yet ... He’s still relatively raw by NBA standards ... Never really got there from a strength standpoint, some may question his dedication to hard work considering his lack of physical strength ... As a 5th year player, NBA teams would like him to have more polish than what he has ... On defense, Lee didn’t do a good job of avoiding foul trouble, averaging 3.6 personal fouls per game ... His constant foul trouble prevented him from having an even bigger impact at Cal ... He’ll need to do a much better job of defending without fouling at the next level ... Another major question mark surrounding Marcus Lee is his consistency ... He scored in single digits a total of 13 games out of 32 ... He’ll need to convince NBA teams that he can be much more consistent ...

Notes: Originally committed and played for the Kentucky Wildcats ... Was a four star recruit out of Deer Valley in Antioch, California ... Off the court Marcus Lee has always been involved in the community, both at Kentucky and at Cal ... He has the reputation of being a really good locker room guy and should be an ideal fit for an organization from a community outreach standpoint ... On the plus side, he had 23 points and 12 rebounds at USC, 23 points and 8 rebounds vs. Arizona State, 19 points and 15 rebounds vs. UCLA, 19 points and 7 rebounds at Stanford, and 23 points and 6 rebounds vs. St. Mary’s. On the negative side, he had 8 points and 10 rebounds vs. UC Riverside, 2 points and 5 rebounds vs. Wichita State, 4 points and 6 rebounds vs. Chaminade, 6 points and 3 rebounds at San Diego State, 7 points and 5 rebounds at Seattle, 4 points and 2 rebounds vs. Arizona, and 4 points and 3 rebounds at Utah.
