Get to know Elfrid Payton
Now that Jameer Nelson is no longer on the club after 10 years, the Magic will give Payton a chance to be their point guard of the future, allowing Victor Oladipo to play off the ball. He had an impact on both ends of the floor for Louisiana-Lafayette, and his pressure defense could earn him extensive playing time. Payton has an attacking mentality on the offensive end, driving to the hoop and getting to the free-throw line. He struggled early in the Magicís summer league, but he regrouped to record two near-triple double games.
