Lofton uses his 6-foot-6, 275-pound frame to score seemingly at will. He was the G-League Rookie of the Year for the Memphis Hustle last season and then turned his two-way contract into a regular deal. He took advantage of a Grizzlies call-up and had 42 points and 14 rebounds against the Oklahoma City Thunder in the team’s final regular-season game.
In Las Vegas, he scored 23 points against the Chicago Bulls in the Grizzlies’ home opener on July 8 and had 24 points and 10 rebounds against the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday.
