Lee had a decent game tonight with 8 points and played okay defense. I think he has a better than zero shot of making the G League roster. Best case scenario would be he signs a two-way contract, but I doubt it happens.

I view Cokely as rich mans version of Matt Howard from Butler back in the day: Extremely skilled post player that is undersized for the NBA.
He is going to make a nice mid-six figure income for years playing overseas, but doubt he sniffs an NBA regular season roster.

Cokley, while awesome for us the past 4 years, would have been an All-American Honorable Mention or better under Mike Anderson back in the day. We rarely utilized his running ability.

RE: Cokely playing on the Hornets Summer League team
Cokley's 6"8 height and 238 weight isn't the problem, the NBA is loaded with players that are that length and weight. Coke's problem is he never developed an outside shot and cannot guard (1,2, 3, or 5) at the NBA level.
Look at every NBA roster and you find Cokely clones everywhere, the exception, those player can stretch the floor and guard multi positions.

In today's games stretch players are like 3 down players in the NFL. Players like Coke are going the way of full back and in some cases the running back. NFL teams look for players (with few exception for elite backs) who can Run, block, and catch. And linebackers that can attack off the ends, cover the tight end, and running backs.

The NBA, College ( see UAB recruits) and even high schools team ( when they have the elite player) are trying to open the paint by spreading and stretching. Players like Coke were the standard at one time, space eater, rebounder, high level of scoring, but not anymore, the game is played from end to end. UAB recruiting appears to be geared toward stretching the floor with players that are able to play and guard multiple positions. In todays games you cannot be a one trick pony and stay on the floor.
