This is today's workout list:

 

James Bell – Villanova 

Jordan Clarkson – Missouri
P.J. Hairston – North Carolina
Rodney Hood – Duke
Josh Huestis – Stanford
Elfrid Payton – Louisiana-Lafayette

 

 

Payton would be an interesting choice, although 9 is too high for him and he'll be gone by 24.  Unless we do the trade for Phoenix's picks or something.  6'4 point guard with great passing and ball handling skills.  Quick first step on offense, would be a great backup for Kemba I think.

I dont believe that no9 is too high at all for Payton. Saw a mock having him go no8 to Sac. He's the Damian Lillard of this draft. Only reason why he's not projected high is bc he's from a small school. Put him at UK and he would probably be a legit top8 pick.

Payton has size and athleticism. A very good floor generator and great feel for the game. Just kinda raw and needs to work on shooting the ball. But , could be a legit PG and the future for a team like Charlotte.

If Cho, MJ, and scouting team know what they're doing Payton should be very high on their list.

Payton is a risky pick. 

 

A career .268% three point shooter and only a career 61% FT shooter??

 

Ugh.  I don't know.  I like his size and athleticism, but how is he different from a guy like Deandre Kane that you can get in the second round or even possibly as an UDFA?

And all who think that are idiots.

At some point it has to be noticed that Kemba makes you shut up a lot during the season.

It is. If you're taking him it'll be based all on "upside" + what he did in the final four tourney. Which there's a lot to like.

You could compare his percentage to a guy like MCW: .307% 3P / .679% FT.

Shooting is a thing that can be taught. It shouldn't be a problem for a guy like Payton. It's not like you're having to change his whole shooting form like MKG.

If Sacramento wants to take him at 8, it means don't draft him at all.

Shooting is not always a thing that can be taught.  If shooting is something easily taught it would be something that everyone was proficient at.
 

I would be excited about Payton at #24, or if we traded back with the Bulls or someone and got him in the mid teens. 

 

But #9 makes me a little woozy lol.
