After his collegiate career on Rocky Top, the London, England native was drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers then traded immediately to the Washington Wizards. After scoring three points per game and posting a .30 field goal percentage in 33 games as a rookie, Schofield was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder prior to the start of the 2020 season, but the VFL was waived after the preseason. 

Schofield will get a fresh start in the pros in Orlando, looking to put together an impressive training camp and preseason to land him a roster spot. Schofield spent time in the G league in 2021 with the Greensboro Swarm.
