Summary:

Loudon Love is a strong, mobile big man that is currently playing in the NBA G-League for the Texas Legends.  He can score with his back to the basket, and he also is a solid position defender.  So far, he is playing fairly well in the NBA G-League, and he has been productive in his role for his team this season.

On the other hand, he will need to add a reliable outside shot to his arsenal, and he will need to show NBA teams that he can guard upper-echelon opponents on a consistent basis.  He doesn’t have enough perimeter skills to play the three, but he is also undersized to play inside.  He also injured his knee, which ended his 2021-22 NBA G-League season. He is a long shot to be drafted, but his solid production in college at Wright State and in the NBA G-League could enable him to carve out a lengthy playing career in professional basketball.
