I had to do a little research on Lacey, as I did not expect NC State to be in the sweet sixteen, but this 6’3 guard can play. In today’s NBA game you can really be considered a guard and have a serviceable career, I expect this to be Lacey’s role. He’s not big enough to play the shooting guard spot, but he pick up the assists that an NBA point guard should be elite at. I’d have to wait and see how the end of the first round shapes up until I can give a certain placement analysis as for where he could end up, but any team needing to fill a guard spot will gladly take his services.
