Marcus Lee left out of ESPN's Top 100

marcus-lee Marcus Lee's attempt to become an NBA player has gotten off to a rocky start. He was named the worst of the combine performers in Chicago last week, and today he failed to earn a mention in Chad Ford's Top 100 NBA draft prospects. That's not a good sign for Lee's immediate future in the draft. Alex Poythress and Isaiah Briscoe did crack the Top 100, although they probably don't love their position on the list. Poythress came in at No. 81, while Briscoe is likely very disappointed by his No. 74  ranking. And in Ford's new Top 30, Jamal Murray earned the third overall spot:
3. Jamal Murray Previous rank: No. 3 Murray's participation at the combine was limited to interviews. Team officials raved about him in that setting, using words like "mature," "focused," "confident" and "knowledgeable" to describe him. Most teams seem to be convinced he can make the transition to point guard in the NBA but feel confident he would excel as a 2-guard as well. "I think he can play both positions, and I think that helps him," one scout said. "He gives teams and coaches some real versatility."
Skal Labissiere ranked No. 11 and Tyler Ulis ranked No. 17. "Some teams were adamant that they would not draft a guard his size," Ford wrote about Ulis. "Others seemed very interested in him as backup point guard. No. 14-25 looks like the range right now." [ESPN's Chad Ford: Top 30 | Top 100]
