Detroit acquired the No. 38 overall pick in a draft-night trade and selected Lee, a junior guard out of Vanderbilt who averaged 18.6 PPG. 3.5 RPG and 4.2 APG last season. The Pistons’ front office had graded Lee as a first-round prospect, according to Edwards.
Teams frequently make bargains with agents of second-round prospects to take their clients if they’ll agree to a two-way deal. However, Lee could compete for minutes on a rebuilding team.
