Ranking All 30 Starting Point Guards From Worst to Best

29. Elfrid Payton — New York Knicks

Derrick Rose coming to town might spell the end for Elfrid Payton’s starting gig in New York. Rookie Immanuel Quickley was already beginning to cut into Payton’s time as the Knicks have mostly relied on R.J. Barrett and Julius Randle as their primary playmakers. Payton has previously posted gaudy assist totals, but that’s it. Payton hasn’t lived up to the hype of being a defensive stopper, and his outside jumper – while improved – isn’t scaring anyone.
