Undrafted big man Kenneth Lofton Jr. has been extremely impressive so far during Summer League. He averaged 14.0 PPG/4.5 RPG/1.5 APG/54.5% FG at the Salt Lake City Summer League and had another breakout performance last night in Vegas vs. the LA Clippers, going for 18 points on 8 of 9 shooting (2-3 FT). Here’s what #2 pick Chet Holmgren had to say about Lofton Jr. after their entertaining matchup back on July 6th.

(Via NBA on ESPN):

“That’s my dog. We were just talking a little trash to each other. We’re going to go at it. He’s going to be in the league for a long time. Hell of a player. We’re going to go at it whenever we play, but when we step outside the lines, that’s my dog for sure.”
