So the Suns trade for Elfrid Payton.
Payton will be a RFA in the offseason.
Better not win us any unnecessary games. But young and I guess worth a flyer.
Gambo corrected it to read Orlando.
The trade at least makes sense. They can give him a look for the rest of the season before deciding what to do.
He should immediately have “back spasms” in the fourth quarter of every game.
The Suns are done in the trade market.
The qualifying offer is 4.5 million.
A second round pick?! I realize he has the stupidest hair in the league and it actually has effected his play... but he really isn't a bad player! Look at his stats, he's efficient, a good shooter, solid assist to turnover...
Not saying he is a world beater but he is a quality, young player... I don't get what Orlando is doing. That is one freaking dumb franchise.
I like the trade as well especially for a second round pick.
The Suns trading a second round pick for Payton was a steal for a 23 year old player with his stats.
My biggest fear about this deal is that Payton and Josh Jackson are going to get into a "stupidest hair" war. That's a battle where everyone loses.
He is a non-shooter, he gets his points basically from lay-ups.
Basically the Suns get a better PG than what they have plus give him an interview for the backup PG position next season.
For a second round pick, I'm fine with the trade. His 3 point percentage is up.
