"I would like to thank the coaching staff, university and fans for a wonderful experience the last two years at NC State, but I'd like to declare for the NBA Draft," Lacey said. "I had a great group of teammates the last two years and they'll always be like brothers to me. This has been the toughest decision of my life but I feel like pursuing this new journey in my basketball career is what is best for me."
Lacey, a 6-3 guard from Huntsville, Ala., averaged 15.7 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.5 assists for a Wolfpack squad that won 22 games and advanced to the Sweet 16.
The NBA's deadline to apply for the NBA Draft is Sunday, April 26.
