Default Naturally carb in keg before lagering?

I have a CAP ready to be moved from primary to seconday for lagering.

Can I just rack to a keg, prime with corn sugar, wait a couple of weeks for it to carb up at 70F and then start the lagering process?

My thinking is this would limit the exposure to O2 (only having to transfer once from primary) and I've read/heard that lagering should be done under pressure.

Any harm in doing this?
