  • David Lee: Retires from NBA

    Lee announced Sunday on his personal Instagram account t0hat he has officially retired from professional basketball.

    The 34-year-old Lee was selected with the 30th overall pick in the 2005 NBA Draft and ended up playing 12 seasons in the league, including stops with the Knicks, Warriors, Celtics, Mavericks and Spurs. He was a two-time NBA All-Star and took home his sole NBA title with the Warriors in 2014-15. Lee finishes his career with averages of 13.5 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.2 assists across 29.3 minutes per game.

  • Spurs' David Lee: Will decline player option

    Lee (knee) will decline his $2.3 million player option for the 2017-18 season and become an unrestricted free agent, Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

    Despite turning 34 years old, Lee was once again a solid contributor off the bench for the Spurs during his most recent campaign, posting averages of 7.3 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists across 79 games. While he did suffer a sprained patellar tendon during the playoffs, Lee isn't in need of surgery and should be back to full strength by mid-July, so there's currently no concerns over his training camp availability. If he opts to sign elsewhere, Lee should be able to find a raise and would offer a decent veteran presence off the bench for a contending team.

  • Spurs' David Lee: Won't undergo surgery

    Lee (knee) will not have surgery on his sprained patellar tendon and is expected to be fully healthy in six weeks, Ramona Shelburne of ESPN reports.

    With a six-week timetable, Lee should be able to resume basketball activities by early-to-mid July. That gives him plenty of time to get in shape prior to training camp.

  • Spurs' David Lee: MRI confirms torn patella

    An MRI on Lee's knee confirmed he's dealing with a partially torn patella, Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

    Lee has already been ruled out of Game 4 against the Warriors on Monday, so this is merely an update on the severity of his injury. He's set to be reevaluated again later this week, which will determine whether or not he'll undergo surgery on his knee. A timetable has yet to be given for Lee's return, but additional updates should be provided over the summer as he goes through the rehabilitation process.

  • Spurs' David Lee: Out for Game 4

    Lee (knee) has been ruled out for Game 4 against the Warriors on Monday, Jeff McDonald of San Antonio Express-News reports.

    While the results of Lee's MRI have yet to be released, the Spurs are already ruling him out of Monday's contest. The injury doesn't appear to be as serious as originally believed, but it will keep him out at least one game, which could end Lee's season with the Spurs on the brink of elimination. Lee's absence should create more opportunities for the likes of Davis Bertans and Dewayne Dedmon off the bench in the frontcourt.
