He was selected 55th in the 2013 NBA Draft by the Memphis Grizzlies but his rights were traded to the Denver Nuggets who he joined in 19 February 2015 after a spell with Khimky Moscow. His father Stéphane played 16 times for France from 1989-1995, and appeared at EuroBasket 1989 when Les Bleus came sixth. Lauvergne is an avid XBox player.
