Maciej Bolesław Lampe (born February 5, 1985 in Łódź) is a Polish professional basketball player. He currently plays with Maccabi Tel Aviv of the Israeli Super League.


Professional career

Originally from Łódź, Poland, Lampe grew up in Stockholm, Sweden. He played briefly for Real Madrid in the Spanish ACB League before being sent on loan to Universidad Complutense of the LEB, the second division level in Spain, to receive more playing time.



Lampe was selected by the NBA club the New York Knicks in the second round (30th overall) of the 2003 NBA Draft as an early entry candidate, despite having been projected as a lottery pick. Maciej was elected to the 2003 Reebok Rocky Mountain Revue All-Revue Team after averaging 17.2 points and 7.0 rebounds in 32.4 minutes for the Knicks' summer league team. Maciej was traded to the Phoenix Suns on January 5, 2004, and he became the youngest player in Suns history to appear in a regular season game.

In January 2005, he got traded for the second time in his NBA career, this time to the New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets. On February 13, 2006, he was traded to the Houston Rockets for point guard Moochie Norris, making the Rockets his fourth NBA club. He holds NBA career averages of 3.4 points per game, 2.2 rebounds per game, and 0.3 assists per game.


Lampe signed a one-year deal with the ULEB Cup club Dynamo Saint Petersburg, however the team went bankrupt shortly thereafter. The bankrupt Dynamo squad was thrown out of the Russian Superleague A one day before the start of the season. Thus, Maciej moved to Khimki Moscow Region. In February 2008, Khimki beat CSKA Moscow in the Russian Cup final and Maciej was awarded the best player (MVP) of the cup final. Maciej then signed a three year contract extension with Khimki.


Lampe signed a multi-year deal with the Israeli Super League club Maccabi Tel Aviv in July 2009.[1]
