Born in Pistoia on 11 February 1988, he grew up in the youth sector of Montecatini, with whom he also made his debut in Legadue. In 2005 D'Ercole was signed by Mens Sana Siena, one of the best teams on the national basketball scene. In 2006/07 he was part of the roster that won the Scudetto, also making his debut at international level by playing four Uleb Cup (current EuroCup) matches.

The following year he moved to Livorno, in Legadue, contributing to the salvation obtained by the Labronici, before returning to Serie A with Snaidero Udine. In 2009/10 he once again wore the Siena jersey with which he won the treble on national soil (Scudetto, Coppa Italia, Supercoppa Italiana), also making his debut in the EuroLeague.

In the following two years Lorenzo played with Vanoli Cremona, before an important three-year period with Virtus Roma: in his first year in the capital he reached the Scudetto final, losing 4-1 against Mens Sana Siena, while in the following seasons he reached a Scudetto semi-final and becomes team captain.

From 2015 to 2017 he was part of the Sassari roster, while in the following two years he took the field with the Avellino vest, reaching the FIBA ​​Europe Cup final lost against Reyer Venezia. In 2018/19 he returned home to Pistoia, before signing - in the summer of 2020 - a contract with Umana Reyer Venezia.

In the national team he played the entire youth team (U16, U18 and U20) winning the bronze at the 20 Under 2007 EuroBasket held in Italy and Slovenia, thanks to the success in the 3rd-4th place final against Russia, in which he scored 9 points. In that team he played together with Luigi Datome, Daniel Hackett and Pietro Aradori, among others. D'Ercole also wears the senior national team jersey, with which he also played two All-Star Games.
