Northern Ireland international Gillespie has signed a two-year deal and defender Lucketti has inked a one-year contract.
The news is a boost for Blades boss Bryan Robson as he prepares his side for life in the Championship.
"Chris Lucketti and Keith Gillespie have signed new deals," said Robson.
"It's done and dusted - Chris has signed a one-year contract and Keith has signed a two-year deal.
"I'm delighted about that as it keeps the squad nice and strong."
Meanwhile, Robson says no other players will be leaving Bramall Lane following the departures of Phil Jagielka and Claude Davis.
"I was resigned to losing Jags (to Everton) and Derby offered us what I consider to be an excellent deal for Claude," added Robson.
"But that's it now, there won't be anyone else leaving, because I think we've already got the makings of a very good squad."
Robson, who has told David Sommeil and Mamadou Seck they are free to leave, is keen to add to his squad before the start of the new season.
"I've identified other areas but I only want to bring top quality in. I won't spend the money if I can't," concluded Robson.
