No. 13: Jordan Loyd

Season Win Shares: 0.1          Current Cap-figure: $0 (Two-Way Contract)

On a two-way contract, Jordan Loyd has been able to make a subtle impact in the few games he has seen the floor.

Per 48 minutes, Loyd has the highest win shares mark on the Raptors’ roster. Though it is in a severely limited sample size (three games), Loyd has made his minutes count.

In his trio of games Loyd scored nearly a point each minute he’s been on the floor, with .420 win shares per 48 minutes to boot, though, again, the mark is heavily skewed by sample size.

For the franchise’s G-League affiliate, Loyd has racked up 23.4 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 5.5 assists in 35.2 minutes per game. His lower-league tallies show a glimpse of the prowess that Loyd showed while at Furman.

The scouting report on Loyd from Draft Express prior to his selection spoke glowingly:

"“Loyd impressed over the course of the two-day camp with his ability to put pressure on the rim in transition, play at different speeds, create for others and make enough shots from the perimeter to keep the defense honest,” Mike Schmitz said."

In his time since college, Loyd has shown an ability to rack up points from outside scoring and driving. Though he is still raw, the 25-year-old guard has the skills to make an impact if injuries strike.

In his lone game with double-digit minutes (12) against the Chicago Bulls, Loyd put up eight points and four rebounds, without a missed shot or turnover.

At a price of only $77,250 due to his two-way contract, Loyd has provided the Raptors with sufficient minutes, despite a shortage of quantity. The future could be bright for the young scorer with further development, but for now, he’s merely a G-League star.
