NBA player profile for Elfrid Payton with stats and fantasy analysis

ELFRID
PAYTON

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)
