NBA Draft

Scouting Report

In some ways, Lecque is a throwback to the 1990s, when Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett proved you could make the jump from high school to the NBA with not a lot of hiccups. Lecque is 6-4 with a 6-7 wingspan and can get to the bucket on most anyone. During the Nike EYBL in 2017, he averaged 17 points per game, then hit for 14.2 ppg in the same event last year.
His ability to get to the foul line is proven, as he averaged 7.1 free throw attempts per game at the Nike EYBL in 2017 and 6.3 the following year. Scouts also like how Lecque has learned to bait the help defense in order to find the open man, a quality rarely seen in younger players. They also like his potential to become a good on-ball and help defender.
Lecque was an N.C. State commit, but as a rare fifth-year high school senior, had the option to declare for the NBA Draft. He did so, but there are scouts who feel that he is making a career-killing mistake. They point to his tendency to make two or three highlight-film plays in every game and then not play a steady, disciplined game to help his team win.
Wherever his next stop is, Lecque will need to show he can make a 3-pointer every once in a while. It would help if he can correct a flaw in his shot that sees him release it from his shoulder instead of his forehead. Lecque must also cut down on turnovers, which experience should help him do, and also improve his efficiency on the offensive end.
