San Francisco Chronicle confirms California “in the mix” for Lee


Earlier today ESPN’s Jeff Goodman reported California is the “early front-runner” to land Marcus Lee for Lee’s senior season of basketball in 2017-18. The San Francisco Chronicle has since confirmed through a source close to the Cal program that Cal is “in the mix” for Lee, but maybe not the front-runner.

Goodman’s source is likely close to Lee, not California, so maybe he is hearing positive things on that end, from the family. Either way, it’s clear California is a very possible destination for the former Wildcat.

One tiny issue: Cal does not have any available scholarships to take Lee next season for his sit-out year. Gotta think Cuonzo Martin can figure that one out, though — if he wants him.

Still kind of hard to believe this is really happening. Why, Marcus?

    “Why?” – Hey Drew, why don’t you ask him why he pulled his name out of the draft?

    This actually upsets me. He’s the last remnant of my favorite team since the days of Tayshaun Prince.
