Pro Prospects

An NBA scout evaluates the potential of Florida forward David Lee, a 6'9", 240-pound senior who averages 13.3 points and 8.8 rebounds and shoots 52.4% from the field.

This is an article from the March 14, 2005 issue Original Layout

"He can score with either hand, he has good balance, and he's an excellent finisher.... He's athletic for a 6'9" player. His motor skills are excellent--he's good at running, jumping, stopping and changing directions.... He's very limited away from the rim. He's not going to make 15- or 18-footers like a lot of forwards these days. It's just not natural for him, and I don't think hours of practice will change it.... His statistics do not reflect his talent. I believe he's one of the sleepers of the draft. He's worthy of late-first-round consideration. I think he has a future in the NBA as a rotational player."
