On today’s episode of Locked On Suns, co-hosts Brendon and Evan discuss the trajectory of Elfrid Payton’s career as it touches down in Phoenix.
There’s no better person to join them in that discussion than Philip Rossman-Reich, the managing editor of FanSided’s Orlando Magic blog and the host of Locked On Magic.
The discussion begins with general observations about Payton’s growth as a defender, shooter, and leader and how it was stunted by the constant change and turmoil in Orlando. The hosts try their best to imagine whether it will be different in Phoenix, and how Payton will look next to Devin Booker.
Finally, Philip compares stories of the Magic’s rebuild to that of Phoenix. Are veteran leaders valuable? Is fit between players required?
