The Phoenix Suns finally get on the board in free agency with the signing of Damion Lee. The contract will be a one-year deal. Lee spent the last four seasons with the Golden State Warriors.
This past season, Lee averaged 7.4 points and 3.2 rebounds per game. He shot 44% from the field and 33% from beyond the arc. Lee can score the basketball, and if Lee gets rolling, he can make a lot of baskets. He is not a great defender, but his shot-making ability could help the Suns off the bench, and Lee will add depth to the Suns’ roster. The 29-year-old may not see many minutes for the Suns, but if called upon, Lee can score the basketball.
In four seasons with the Warriors, Lee appeared in 201 games and started in 42. During his tenure with Golden State, he averaged 8.1 points and 3.4 rebounds in 20.6 minutes while shooting 43.7 percent from the field and 36.6 percent from 3-point range.
In the 2019-20 season, the Warriors had a lot of injuries, and Lee played in 49 games and 36 starts. He posted a career-high 12.7 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 2.7 assists.
Lee has proven he can play if given the minutes; if the Suns pull off a trade for Kevin Durant, Lee could see consistent minutes off the bench because Phoenix would have to give up many players.
