The four-year Buckeye went undrafted in the 2017 NBA Draft. During his Ohio State career, Loving averaged 10 points per game on a .419 field goal percentage. The 6-foot-7 forward also recorded 3.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game. He was a starter in his last two seasons and averaged 34.0 and 33.9 minutes per game in 2015-16 and 2016-17, respectively. As a junior, Loving was named honorable mention All-Big Ten.
Former Ohio State forward Trevor Thompson also signed a deal with the Golden State Warriors Friday. But less than 24 hours later, the team waived him. SF Gate reported Thompson will likely travel to Santa Cruz, the Warriors’ Gatorade League affiliate.
