Elfrid Payton scored nine points (no 3s) and added seven assists, a steal and two turnovers in Friday’s loss to the Knicks.
Payton played 24 minutes as the Pelicans just don’t run their starters out there that much during preseason so there’s a chance his numbers are slightly better when he gets to the regular season. Still, his free throw shooting (1-for-2 tonight) and lack of 3s mean he’s probably at best a top-100 play in 9-cat though slightly better in 8-cat. The best thing going for him is the Pelicans only have untested Frank Jackson behind him on the depth chart.
