ELFRID
PAYTON

New York • 2020-21
Jul. 7, 2017 - Payton exploded in the second half last season, to the tune of an elite fantasy level. Nope, not a joke. Can he continue it, and develop his game further this year? The Magic did not draft a point guard, so perhaps they believe in him after all. Or maybe F Jonathan Isaac was too appetizing to pass up. In either case, Payton must have been relieved to see that his playing time is safe. You can expect big things to continue this year. He needs to work on his inconsistent play in order to become a leader for the Magic. (@I_am_DanHan)

Orlando Magic PR
PRESS RELEASE: @OrlandoMagic guard @RjHampton14 named @NBA Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month for May * Hampton is the 7th Magic player to ever earn Rookie of the Month honors and the first since Elfrid Payton in January 2015. #MagicTogether t.co

Starting PG Elfrid Payton has hit rock bottom - and now Thibodeau may have hard playoff decisions to make #Knicks #NBA t.co

Tommy Beer
Over the Knicks last five games, Elfrid Payton has more turnovers (4) than made FG’s (3), made FT’s (0) and made 3PT’s (0) combined. Payton also has more fouls (8) than total points (6). Again, he should not be the Knicks starting point guard in Game 1 of the playoffs

Looks like Knicks were trying to get Elfrid Payton going and it's not working. ...And here comes Derrick Rose

Marc Berman
Knicks up 13-8 but rough start for Elfrid Payton in first few minutes. Two turnovers and getting his layup blocked by Luke Kornet. Will be interesting to see if Thibs tries to extend his minutes if it's a blowout to see if he can snap out of this before playoffs.

Given Elfrid Payton’s reduction in minutes, I asked Thibs whether he’d consider a lineup change this late in the season. He lauded the team’s depth and didn’t answer.
