Lampe 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. Lampe was traded to the Phoenix Suns on January 5, 2004, deal, and at the time, he became the youngest player in Suns history to appear in a regular season game, as well as the first Suns player to play while being 18 years old.

In January 2005, he got traded for the second time in his NBA career, this time to the New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets.

He holds NBA career averages of 3.4 points per game, 2.2 rebounds per game, and 0.3 assists per game.
