Lofton is not projected to be selected in most drafts, but fared well at the G League Elite Camp, earning an invite to the NBA Combine. In his lone scrimmage there, he recorded 13 points and three steals.
“He likely formed his decision to stay in the draft based on feedback from team executives and scouts after a strong performance in the combine,” wrote Cody Taylor of Yahoo Sports. “He will also have the opportunity to improve his draft stock in private workouts with teams.”
