Lamb said in a statement released Tuesday by UConn that it was a difficult decision to go professional but it is in the best interest of his family.
UConn coach Jim Calhoun said he looks forward to seeing Lamb develop into a ''terrific player'' in the NBA.
The 6-foot-5 Lamb became just the sixth sophomore in UConn history to score 1,000 career points.
