Logo Elfrid Payton

I mentioned him in a thread on Raptors thread but I thought he deserved some proper recognition via his own thread. This is mostly what you need to know about Elfrid Payton.

H: 6' 4"
W: 179 lbs
Bday: 02/22/1994
(19 Years Old)
Wingspan: 6'8"

Stats for his 3rd year at Louisiana, yes. 3rd year.

23 games played
Averages
Minutes: 36.9
PPG: 20.2
FG%: 50.5%
FT%:62.3%
APG: 5.6
RPG: 6.3
SPG: 2.6
TPG: 4.2

Needs to raise his Free throw percentages up and lower his Turnovers to become one ultimate point guard.

A dark horse who via draft express is predicted to go 40th

Here is a bit of background information.

Played for USA U19 team this past summer ... Named first team all-Sun Belt last season ... Appears to be the top Mid Major prospect available this season, if he declares himself eligible ...

NBADRAFT.NET although unreliable compares him to a Rajon Rondo and also stated.

Tall, quick and talented offensive point guard ... Deadly first step and killer crossover allow him to get to the basket seemingly at will ... At 6'3", has ideal size for a point guard ... Quick hands and great defensive instincts allow him to get a ton of steals. Has averaged 2.4 per game over the past 2 seasons ... Great in transition. Good finisher at the rim ...Very athletic, is able to play above for highlight finishes ... Good defender who shows a lot of defensive potential with his length (6'7" wingspan) and quickness (lateral speed) ... Effective pull-up jumper, though needs to add range and consistency ... Seems to raise his game against good competition, as he did at the USA U19 tryouts and with his 20 points and 7 steals against Keith Appling and Michigan State last season ... Improving court vision ... Strong rebounding point guard ... Gets to the line at a good rate (9.5 attempts per game) ... Though a junior, he's a year young for his grade giving him added intrigue ...


Here is a short video of his highlights. Feel free to comment

Payton keeps moving up the rankings and has snuck his way into the first round. Looks like we might even pick him up with our 1st. He's gone from 40 to 28 this week. Told you so
