Louisiana Tech forward Kenneth Lofton Jr. has decided to remain in the draft, he revealed on his Twitter page. Lofton, who was named to the All-Conference USA first team, averaged 16.5 PPG and 10.5 RPG in 33 games last season as a sophomore. Lofton is not currently projected to be drafted, but turned some heads at the G League Elite Camp.
We have more draft decisions:
- Providence’s Jared Bynum is withdrawing his name and returning to the Friars next season, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports tweets. The junior guard averaged 12.2 PPG and 4.0 APG last season.
- Kentucky forward Keion Brooks is removing his name from consideration, Jeff Goodman of Stadium tweets. Brooks, who is in the transfer portal, started 33 games for the Wildcats and averaged 10.8 PPG and 4.4 RPG.
- San Diego forward Jaiden Delaire, a Stanford transfer, is also withdrawing from the draft, Rothstein adds in another tweet. He averaged 10.1 PPG and 4.0 RPG while starting 26 of 32 games for the Cardinal last season.

Another one of those YT or TikTok or IG dudes that you see hyped up.
Had to look this kid up and see if he was the son of former mlb outfielder Kenny lofton.
Anyways he’s not. But this dude is huge he should bulk and play football. This kid does not have the body for basketball
He is a beast in the NBA, back in the era where they used to smoke cigarettes on the bench!
Please let me see someone fast like Poole put this dude in 1 on 1 iso next year it will be laughs!
That Lofton dude. Needs to lose about 50lbs.
Think huskier Sean May
Sean May was out of the league in 3 years. Only lasted that long because he was a first round pick.
Jamal Bienemy, Eric’s nephew, is in the draft, barely. Recall Eric in shocking black socks for Colorado’s college FB title in 1990. He was built, but short. Off.Coor. for Chiefs now.
I wondered if he was baseball Lofton’s son, too, and if they’d have to trace back and see who the FedEx delivery man was…
Umm…What? Wrong Lofton.
Lofton has no choice to enter if he stayed it looks like he would eat him self out of basketball I’m a big guy so this is just my opinion
Pels should take him so he can swipe zions food
i like ken’s game. he definitely can hoop. don’t judge him cuz how he looks.
