Lacey, who went undrafted out of North Carolina State in 2015, spent two seasons in the Italian League to begin his professional career and has played for Lokomotiv Kuban in Russia for the last two years. In 17 EuroCup games last season, he averaged 5.8 PPG and 2.4 APG with a .472 3PT%.
Because Lacey has never played in the G League, the Bucks will be able to sign him as an affiliate player, which appears to be the plan. If the 28-year-old spends at least 60 days with the Wisconsin Herd, he’d be eligible for an Exhibit 10 bonus worth up to $50K.
The Bucks now have 19 players under contract.
