Elfrid Payton scored 17 points on 7-of-11 shooting to go along with eight assists and two 3-pointers on Wednesday.
Payton’s history of lacking a 3-point shot and his poor free throw percentage keeps him from reaching top-75 value in 9-cat leagues. Furthermore, he does not bring a whole lot to the table as he hovers around 12-4-6 stats consistently. He will start next to Jrue Holiday in the backcourt, but he may not be worth anything more than a late-round flier for people who hope that the increased minutes on a better team result in better stats.
