Since I might as well provide my , I would much rather have Courtney Lee instead of Dahntay Jones. To people saying he's an undersized SG: Lee is 6'5", an inch shorter than DJ and Rush, and the same height as Lancelot. I understand that some people have a problem with Lee's inability to play small forward, while DJ can swing between 2/3. But I still feel this would further push Paul George to playing that backup forward position, thus giving Lee open reign at the backup shooting guard position.
EXCEPT (and this is the biggest factor) we still have George Hill and Lance Stephenson to backup Paul at the 2. As is evident, until Frank starts giving Dahntay's backup small forward minutes to George, I would much rather find someone to replace Dahntay's 2/3 swingman position.
Regardless, we don't need Lee that much, especially if he has expressed disinterest in returning to Indiana (much akin to myself a couple years back).
I would love that type of deal CableKC. I really like Jordan Hill's athleticism and versatility as a backup PF/C and Lee as a backup guard. Both players provide better athleticism and don't require a ton of shots or the ball in their hands. I think that is the kind of deal we should be looking for.
Courtney Lee is a terrific defender and an efficient shooter. He is very similar to Brandon Rush in the way they play the game. I wouldn't want everybody to be severely disappointed, so maybe it's not a great idea to bring him in (regardless of his fit).
