    Hope whatever advice he got pays off for him...except for the dumb ass advice from whoever told him to list UAB as a potential transfer school. Really stupid move for Lofton to allow that to happen.

    Well into the 2nd round and Junior is listed as the 29th best player availableó8th best PF according to ESPN.

    So, what are his options if he doesnít get drafted?

    Summer league invite. Could land him with a G league team or even an NBA team if someone sees him fitting. He isnít going to fit with just anyone. Heís such a unique player. Heís good-if he can get the catch and shoot three he will be a shoe-in for a roster. I think a lot of front offices want to see him develop a true perimeter game. He doesnít have to shoot 40%.. but hitting 35% would make him viable. And he will have to do it against true nba talent competition

    I will always believe that one more college year would have served him better than a full G League year would.

    I agree another year of college would have helped him, but that year was never going to be at Tech.

    There are a lot of places in the world now where you can play ball and make decent money. I hope he makes in the league and can stick, but like I said with his skill set and size he kind of falls in between roles in the NBA. If he was a better ball handler it would help him.

    Speedy won his Euro league (Lithuania?)

    Kyser won his Euro league (Israel)

    Good work if you can get it, I'm sure.

    I totally agree with this. And on that point I am glad he decided to forego college.

    Lofton's summer league debut Tuesday....9pts / 3 Rebs / 4 PF in 15 minutes. Pretty productive (except for the fouls). First game for Memphis. Good to see he already getting playing time.

    Saw someone post that he is/was torching the overall #2 pick. In tonight’s game maybe?

    19 points and 6 rebounds (although a loss). Not too shabby. I think this young man will make it, and happy that Tech is HIS school, and not some other NIL money school.

    See I still have a problem with him entering the portal - it's like your girlfriend telling you that she just wants to be friends after two years of knockout sex....

    Yep and listing UAB speaks to his character at best.
