Former Tennessee Volunteer Chris Lofton
is trying to choose between two teams interested in his services in
the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.
The two-time All-SEC guard from Tennessee was not selected
Thursday night in the NBA draft, which was not unexpected.
Lofton's agent, Erik Fleischer, says Lofton will pick a team to
join in the Las Vegas league that begins July 11.
Of the 30 NBA franchises, 21 compete in the Las Vegas league.
Charlotte and Denver are believed to be the teams interested in
Lofton. Buzz Peterson, the Tennessee coach who signed Lofton, is
Charlotte's director of player personnel.
Lofton is a native of Maysville, Ky., but was not recruited by
the University of Kentucky or the University of Louisville.
