Milwaukee selected Lamb with the 42nd overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft after his sophomore season with the National Champion Kentucky Wildcats. Over his two years at Kentucky, Lamb averaged 13.1 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 78 career games.
He left Kentucky as the top three-point shooter in the program’s history, connecting on 47.5 percent (144-303) of his attempts from behind the arc. He also joined the 1,000-point club in Kentucky’s win over Kansas in the 2012 National Championship game when he scored a team-high 22 points.
Lamb finished his career as a Wildcat with 1,018 points. Lamb was named to the Final Four All-Tournament Team, East Region All-Tournament Team and Second Team All-SEC as a sophomore.
This is a tough break for the former Wildcat, but hopefully, he’ll find work with another team where he can also get more playing time. The Magic are pretty thin at guard with only Jameer Nelson, Victor Oladipo and Elfrid Payton signed, and they also just traded Arron Afflalo.
