Juanny, Lofton Updated: NBA Edition!

With Vol football taking center stage this summer, and deservedly so, I thought I update everyone on some BasketVols trying to prolong their playing careers. 

Chris is currently playing in the NBA Summer League for my Denver Nuggets.  He got some floor time Monday and proceeded to do what Chris Lofton does, make threes, well one of them at least, he only played 8 minutes against Toronto.  Considering the Nuggets complete lack of outside shooting, Lofton could find a niche on the team as a three point specialist.  He has three more games to make an impression.

Meanwhile, JaJuan Smith is working on increasing his chances of a contract offer from the Dallas Mavericks with a 19 point explosion on Monday.  Juanny put on a three point shooting clinic hitting 4 of 6 and leading all scorers.  He teamed up with former Vandy star Shan Foster, who had 17 points himself, to lead the Mavs to victory over Minnesota.  JaJuan is averaging nearly 9 points a game while only averaging 10 minutes on the floor, very efficient.  The Mavs have 2 more games and hopefully JaJuan can find himself a roster spot come training camp. 

 I'll keep track of these former Vols and see if they can land somewhere in the league.  I'll keep my fingers crossed.
