2012 NBA Free Agency: Courtney Lee Gaining Interest From Phoenix Suns

Houston Rockets free agent shooting guard Courtney Lee is gaining interest from various teams this off season, and the latest team to show interest is the Phoenix Suns, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

The Suns are interested in Lee since they lost out on free agent Eric Gordon since the New Orleans Hornets matched the Suns offer, and they want to pair Lee with Goran Dragic in their back court.

The Rockets recently pulled their qualifying offer to Lee which now makes him an unrestricted free agent, and allows him to sign with any team with the Rockets now not able to make a matching offer. The move to withdraw their offer to Lee was to land free agent Jeremy Lin as his replacement, but if the Rockets do not land Lin they will have some competition if they want to bring back Lee.
