High school career

In his sophomore season, he earned second-team All-Pac-10 honors and first-team Pac-10 All-Academic honors. In 29 games, he averaged 13.4 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 30.7 minutes per game.

In July 2014, Lockett joined the NBA D-League Select Team for the 2014 NBA Summer League. On August 8, 2014, he signed with Basketball Löwen Braunschweig of the Basketball Bundesliga. In 30 games played for Braunschweig, he averaged 12.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.3 steals per game.
In July 2015, Lockett joined the Indiana Pacers for the 2015 NBA Summer League. On August 5, 2015, he signed a one-year deal with Dolomiti Energia Trento of the Italian Serie A.
