Lee Skinner is a 198 cm versatile forward who can score in various ways. He is a relentless rebounder and brings high intensity on both ends of the floor. Lee is long and athletic, and has a great one or two dribble pull-up or step-back shot from mid-range. Lee is outstanding in getting into the lane and playing off two feet to create his own shot or to get teammates in position to score. He is a craft offensive player who can either face up and attach defenders or post them up down low. He runs the floor well and makes excellent decisions in transition and half court offense. Lee is a solid on-the-ball defender where he uses his size, athletic ability, and footwork to stop perimeter players from driving or shooting over him. He can also guard power forwards, which adds more versatility to his defensive game. When guards are being pressured, he brings the ball up the floor and has the ability to start his team’s offense.
In August 2021, Lee signed to play for Finish finalists, Kauhajoki Karhu.
