Lee attended Pike High School in Indianapolis and played on their Indiana 4A state championship winning team in 2003.
As a senior at Western Kentucky University, Lee was named Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year. He finished his college career tied with Jim McDaniels for all-time leading scorer of Western Kentucky University, with 2,238. He started 128 games, played an overall 3,957 minutes, 82% free throws made, 245 three point shots made, had 242 steals, 281 assists and 78 blocked shots in his career for the Hilltoppers. As a senior he was ranked 28th nationally in scoring with 20.4 points per game.
Lee's tattoo reading "R.I.P. Danny Rumph" is dedicated to his Western Kentucky teammate who died on the court of a pick-up game in his hometown.
Then on March 23, 2009 in a game against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden, Lee set a then-career high with 22 points. Lee made some critical free throws late in the fourth quarter to secure a comeback win for the Magic. Lee finished 6-8 from the field, 2-3 from behind the three point line, and made 8-8 from the free throw line.
During the Magic's first round NBA playoff series against the Philadelphia 76ers, Lee scored 18 points in game 1 and a team-high 24 points in game 2, helping the team tie the series at 1-1.
On April 28, 2009 Lee was accidentally hit in the face by Dwight Howard during Game 5 of the Magic's first round playoff series. The following day it was announced he would miss Game 6, suffering a fractured sinus. Since the injury, he has worn a protective mask over his face while playing. In game 2 of the 2009 NBA Finals, Lee missed a potential game-winning layup at the end of regulation.
