The 6-foot-6, 210-pound Lee spent most of last season with the Santa Cruz Warriors, Golden State’s G League affiliate.
He was called up late in the season by the Atlanta Hawks and after finishing a pair of 10-day deals, was signed for the remainder of the season.
In 15 games (11 starts) with the Hawks, Lee was effective. He averaged 10.7 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 26.9 minutes per game.
Lee shot 40.8 percent from the field, 25.0 percent from the 3-point line and 75.9 percent from the free-throw line.
He was undrafted out of Louisville in 2016, having played 95 games over a span of four years at Drexel previously.
