Former Tennessee All-American Chris Lofton is not on the initial invitation list for the NBA pre-draft

Lofton's agent, Eric Fleisher, said Lofton will remain on the alternate list until selected or until the camp starts May 27 in Orlando, Fla.

"Chris has had to fight for everything in his career," Fleisher said. "And every step of the way he has proved people wrong."

Lofton has been in Phoenix training the past two weeks and plans to return to his home in Maysville, Ky., on Friday.

"I've been looking forward to working out in front of teams because I'm feeling stronger, quicker and I have more energy," Lofton said.

Fleisher said he is in the process of scheduling Lofton to have individual workouts for teams.
