NC State in the NBA: 2019 Preseason Recap

Published

on

The 2019 NBA Preseason has come to a close, and before the 2019-20 Regular season kicks off on Tuesday night, here’s a recap of how former NC State players did in the Preseason.

Former ACC Player of the Year T.J. Warren led the Pacers in scoring (14.8) in their 4 preseason games, shooting 47.6% from the field, an 50% from beyond the arch. Warren is a lock to be the starting Small Forward in Indy.

Former ACC Freshman of the Year Dennis Smith Jr. was dinged up some, and only played in 2 preseason games, averaging 6.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game. DSJ shot poorly, hitting 17.6% of his shots. Smith Jr. isn’t a lock for the starting point guard job in New York, battling things out with Elfrid Payton.

Guard C.J. Williams only played in one game for the Brooklyn Nets for 2.2 minutes, recording no stats, before being waived.

Guard Jalen Lecque, who was supposed to be a Freshman at NC State this season, played in 3 games for the Suns this preseason, averaging 3.7 points in an average of 4.9 minutes per game.

Published

on

Former NC State Guard C.J. Williams has been waived by the Nets. He only played 2.2 minutes in 1 game for Brooklyn this preseason.

Williams’ contract with Brooklyn was non-guaranteed. Despite being waived, the Nets could be interested in making C.J. a member of the Long Island Nets, their G-League affiliate, but if they were to do so, they would have to acquire his G-League rights from the Iowa Wolves.

After 4 years overseas, and 1 year strictly in the G-League, Williams served as an NBA 2-Way player the past two seasons with the Clippers and the Timberwolves.

Williams played for NC State from 2008-12, averaging 10.6 points per game his Senior year.

Former NC State Guard Trevor Lacey Signs with Milwaukee Bucks

Published

on

Former NC State Guard Trevor Lacey has been signed by the Milwaukee Bucks.

Lacey played the past 4 seasons overseas after leaving Raleigh. He played his first two seasons professionally in Italy, and the past two years in Russia for Lokomotiv Kuban. It’s honestly rather shocking that Lacey picked up an NBA contract, considering the fact that he hasn’t exactly been blowing it up in Russia last year. He only averaged 5.6 points per game last year, starting in only 10 of 30 games.

With that being said, Lacey has shot the ball extremely well from beyond the arch overseas, shooting 43.5% last year, and 40.9% the year before.

The extent of Lacey’s contract is unknown at this point. Whether it is a regular NBA contract, or a 2-way contract hasn’t been revealed.

After averaging 16 points per game in one season at NC State, Lacey opted out of his final season to pursue his professional career. After going undrafted, he did experience a little bit of the NBA, playing in the Summer League his first two summers after leaving Raleigh.

Lacey left Lokomotiv Kuban in March to come back to the United States due to family issues.
