Situation: Signed for $5.2 million in 2013, $5.4 million in 2014, $5.8 million in 2015
Reasons for keeping: Reasons to defend Lee became harder to find as the season went on, but the Celtics guard is a natural fit next to Rondo and off the bench as a two guard. Lee is a good defender and is historically a good free throw shooter.
Reasons for replacing: Much easier said than done considering his contract, the Celtics could be getting much more value from someone else. Lee was so inconsistent he found himself out of the rotation in the playoffs. Getting out from under his contract may mean taking on a bad contract or packaging him in with others in a large deal.
Dzen’s take: Replace him
