#8) Junghyun Lee, 6'1, Shooting Guard, 17.2 years old, Korea

EWA: 1.5
PER: 23.3
TS%: 56.8
18.9 PTS, 4.0 REB, 3.9 AST, 1.6 STL, .4 BLK, 11-36 3P, 39-46 FT

Lee was the catalyst of a Korean team that finished a surprising 8th at the U17s, leading the team in both scoring and assists. Undersized and not exceptionally athletic, Lee was impressive as a scoring guard who showed the ability to create his own offense in one on one situations, showcasing a quick first step, and a big right to left crossover that allowed to him get to the rim. He struggled finishing against length at times, but showed great creativity around the basket using his body to create space. Lee showed some vision out of the pick and roll but was mainly looking to create offense for himself. He was able to stretch the defense with catch and shoot ability. He's an active defender, but is somewhat limited in who he can guard due to his lack of size, length and strength.

Yet to enter the professional stage, Lee will continue to be a part of the Korean national program as he has been since he first played with the South Korean U16 national team in 2015. His continued development will be very important for a team that has traditionally struggled to emerge out of FIBA Asia competition to the World's most prestigious tournaments.
