Lecque could declare for the 2019 NBA Draft because he’s a year removed from his graduating class and will turn 19 in 2019. He’s currently projected as the No. 25 pick in 2019 per ESPN’s Jonathan Givony. Representatives from 16 NBA teams watched Lecque and his Brewster Academy team go 0-2 at the National Prep Showcase at Albertus Magnus College.

Givony said NBA scouts will continue to monitor Lecque this season at Brewster (N.H.) Academy. “He showed the positives and the negatives,” Givony said. “He’s one of the most athletic players you’ll find in the world outside the NBA and I think he showed that his feel for the game has improved. “He’s a better passer now, but he also showed that there are a lot of things that he needs to work on. He needs to play a lot harder on defense. His jump shot is a long ways away. They went 0-2 here so that’s not a positive but he’s really talented. I think the NBA will keep watching him as the season moves along and try to figure out exactly where he fits into this draft if he does decide to declare.”
