Elfrid Payton has agreed to a one-year, $5 million deal with the Knicks.
After being waived by the Knicks earlier in the week, they will bring him back on a reduced deal. It is surprising he wasn't able to garner more attention on the open market given his reasonably strong showing to end the 2019-20 season. The point guard situation in New York remains unclear and so Payton's exact role is a little cloudy. Should he be given the starting tag and with it starters minutes, he could be a sneaky source of assists and steals late in drafts.
