Clyde Wayne Lee (born March 14, 1944) is an American former professional basketball player.
A 6'10" forward/center born in Nashville, Tennessee, Lee attended David Lipscomb Campus School (now Lipscomb Academy) and went on to star at Vanderbilt University in the mid-1960s. Lee was known for his rebounding skills and inside scoring prowess. In his junior season (1964–65), he led the Commodores to their first SEC championship (Overall: 24-4, SEC: 15-1). Vanderbilt reached the NCAA Mideast Regional Finals, where they lost to Michigan, 87-85. During his senior season (1965–66), he earned All-American honors and the SEC Player of the Year Award. Sportswriter Howell Pesier described him as "the greatest player in Vanderbilt history".
After four years at Vanderbilt, he was selected by the San Francisco Warriors with the third pick of the 1966 NBA Draft. In 10 (1966–1976) NBA seasons, spent with the Warriors, Atlanta Hawks, and Philadelphia 76ers, Lee scored 5,733 points and grabbed 7,626 rebounds in 742 games. He also appeared in the 1968 NBA All-Star Game. He has served as a color commentator for radio broadcasts of Vanderbilt men's basketball games.
Lee was named to the Vanderbilt Athletics Hall of Fame as part of its inaugural class.
