Player Review: Jordan Loyd is more than just a random guy in a suit

Jordan Loyd proved his worth in the G League, but can he take his game to the next level and make the Raptors’ main roster?

Judging from how Loyd looked in the Las Vegas Summer League, it was actually a surprise that we would be writing an end-of-the-season piece for him as a Raptor (on a two-way deal). His performance was underwhelming, especially for a non-rookie standard, and especially for someone with G League and Euro-ball experience under their belt.

Saddled by a bad back, Loyd was barely able to showcase his talent in Vegas, and he had only one memorable spurt, where he dropped 12 points in a quarter. The other guards that the Raptors brought in got the starting roles, and even the minutes that he received were not ideal. That he would go on and finish as the Raptors 905 starting point guard would surprise anyone who (barely) saw him play the point in Vegas.

Still, the Raptors liked what they saw in Loyd, and kept him on a two-way contract hoping he could transition into a full-time point guard. Before the season started, I wrote a player preview on Loyd, essentially penciling in the season as a year-long tryout for him, and as a vehicle for him to transition into a potential combo guard role for the Raptors in the future.

If there was any indication the Raptors had some reservation about whether Loyd could successfully transition into a bigger point/combo guard role, it came when the team added Kay Felder to the Raptors 905 roster, essentially putting the ball on Felder’s hands for the most part. At the time, it was a sound idea — Felder would be the primary point guard and give Loyd his reps running the team.

Jordan Loyd excelled as the team’s starting shooting guard, putting up an impressive near-20-5-5 stat line in November, even while still trying to find his range from the perimeter. Loyd was expected to be a floor spacer for the 905, but his initial struggles with hitting his perimeter shot actually brought out all the other things that we didn’t know about him. Loyd could create his own shot off the dribble, find space in the mid-range, and make things happen for his teammates. (When all else failed, Loyd showed a knack for getting to the free throw line too.) Meanwhile, on defense, Loyd was able to play the passing lanes effectively to get his team out and running.

Unfortunately, the Raptors’ guard depth and the 905’s need for his services pretty much had him staying in Mississauga for the most part. Loyd appeared in just 12 NBA games, and all during garbage time. However, Jordan Loyd Photo did have a couple of good performances, during which the Toronto fanbase got a glimpse of what Jordan Loyd Photo can do. In short minutes, Jordan Loyd Photo showed that he can at least be the third point guard in the rotation. He did a good job facilitating and setting up his teammates and was able to provide floor spacing when hitting his perimeter shots. Unfortunately, his extended minutes were few and far in between.

Since Jordan Loyd did not get a chance to play competitive minutes in the NBA, it remains to be seen whether he could be good enough to be a rotation player in the NBA. Loyd’s G League campaign showed that he’s got some excellent transferable skills, and also that he still has ways to go in his development as a combo-guard in the NBA — something that could be accelerated with some competitive playing time in the NBA. Outside of all the offensive and defensive skill set that Loyd’s got in his bag, I think his biggest attribute is his ability to adjust to his role well and quickly learn on the fly.

And we’d be remiss in not mentioning Loyd’s reaction to Kawhi’s big shot (The Shot) to eliminate the Philadelphia 76ers. It was Loyd’s finest on-camera post-season performance. But his most significant contribution was the role he played in scouting Steph Curry in the Finals (and for other point guards in the playoffs). Loyd’s got the decent handle, shooting, and the aptitude to learn Curry’s habits, and plays to simulate his game in practice. It was a useful addition to the Raptors as they made their way to the championship.

I have a feeling that Jordan Loyd’s game got better based on what he went through behind the scenes in the postseason. Now he’s got a chance to prove that he’s more than just a “random guy in a suit” for this upcoming NBA Summer League and the Raptors’ next training camp.
