Zach Lofton is an athletic, skilled combo guard that can shoot and score the basketball. He can score in a variety of ways, and he also is a high-motor player that will compete on every possession.
He may need to show teams that he can effectively run the point, but regardless, he had a good showing on Day 3 of the 2018 Portsmouth Invitational, and Lofton could end up making an NBA team’s summer league roster this year.
