Profile

After starting most of the games as a freshman and sophomore in Miami Florida he transferred to Baylor where his name emerged even more. He was a key player of the Bears Sweet 16 run in his junior season and was named All BIG12 Newcomer team. Following year Baylor fell short to participate in NCAA tournament but Manu was clearly the leader and ended up being selected to 2nd Team in one of the best D1 conferences.

After college he is been part of the PIT and the NBA Summer League with the Mavs, where he had some great flashed getting the call from the Clippers that placed him in G-League with very interesting results (14ppg, 4apg, 40%3 in 38 games). Right after the Agua Caliente experience he signed in the Spanish ACB with Murcia, starting his pro overseas career. Manu played also in French Pro A, german BBL before sign in the Lithuanian LKL where he is been one of the best imports last year with Prienai and this season with Jonava. This season he led Jonava to a great 5th spot in the regular season having some huge games like the one vs the Euroleague team, Zalgiris Kaunas (33pts, 4ass) and against Champions League clubs Lietuvos Rytas (27pts and 6ass) and Neptunas (28pts and 4ass).

The Ixelles native has a lot of international experience, having been part of all the Belgian Youth Nationals Teams and played 7 (!!!) European Championships, from U16 to U20, till making a debut with the Senior National Team where he is actually one of the most important players.

Lecomte is a talented and scoring PG able to guide the team at highest level as true leader. Great P&R player and passer. Has talent and he is quick, a great ball-handler that can create space for his jumper or for his teammates as well. Manu is a very good shooter, has a really deep range and likes to fire it up from distance in transition. Furthermore he comes off screens with quick feet set like quality SG which allow him to take this role for some stretches. He has a lighting release and solid handles that can make him plays in isolations with efficient results. Great attacking the rim as well where he can slash to the rim finishing with a floater or a pull-up, his mid-range game is very good as well.
