    Orlando is a dumpster fire happy for EP to get out of there

    Traded for a 2nd round pick which means he was traded for nothing. Surprised that his defense is considered a knock. Would have thought he would be a good nba defender.

    I'm happy for him as well but the Suns are about the only team worse.

    He's a restricted free agent after the season, meaning the move gives the Suns the right to match any offer sheet he may sign with another team.

    Personally, seeing as the Pelicans needed a defense-first guard, I was hoping they'd try and swing Rajon Rondo's expiring contract or a pick to Orlando for Payton. Wasn't to be, I guess. Dell Demps likes to throw any possible assets in a fire before they can do any real good for the team.

    Elfrid is rated as one of worst defensive guards in the league

    I'm not sure the Pelicans had the cap space to go after him after they are paying Mirotic $12.5 million for this year.

    Where do you see these numbers? What metrics are you using?

    That's because the NBA doesn't want anyone to play defense.

    I'm not sure where you got this one from but his offensive and defensive ratings are the highest they've ever been this year

    Here is an article outlining how Elfrid did in his first Suns game.

    Stats can be deceiving. Something like defensive efficiency tells more about the team than one individual. My eyes tell me that Elfrid is still playing hard on D.

    My math tells me that until Chandler shot out of his mind late in the 4th quarter, the Suns were much more effective defensively when Elfrid was on the floor than when he wasn't. And his teammates gave up a lot of easy buckets while he was in there.

    His hair is insane. If he keeps playing like that, there will be a new fad in Phoenix.

    He said he's going to cut it soon. He's "over" getting questions about it.

    Unlike Orlando, there's a chance Phoenix is actually going somewhere. That said, the PG position is crowded there when all are healthy.

    He needs to cut it.

    I'm curious to know your take on Phoenix over Orlando. Orlando has a young nucleus as well. Phoenix has actually been the dumpster fire this year when firing their coach and having to give Bledsoe away because he couldn't deal with Watson anymore. I think Orlando will finish better than Phoenix and they have the better overall roster with guys like Vucevic, Fournier and A Gordon.

    I don't follow either team religiously, but from what I watched Saturday night, Elfrid has dudes that can actually utilize his distribution and leadership effectively.

    Not used to playing together, they were hesitant receiving his passes and going up to the rim. Otherwise, he would've had almost 20 assists.

    When they're used to playing together, I think Elfrid gets a double double every night. And the team's defense was clearly better when Elfrid was in vs. out, not counting Chandler shooting out of his mind late in the 4th for Denver.

    Elfrid makes Phoenix better, and they have enough pieces to make a run and win some games. Schedule's much tougher (tonight vs GSt) than Orlando's, but Orlando's a dumpster fire and the coaching there never used Elfrid correctly. He's not supposed to be a scorer.

    Elfrid's going off right now. 16 points (7/7 shooting, 2/2 from 3) and 6 rebounds... IN THE FIRST QUARTER.

    But I thought he wasn't supposed to be a scorer? LOL
