   2017 NBA Manifesto

Gary Payton
PG, 6’3, 190lbs, 24 years old, 1 year of experience

An athletic, defensive-minded point guard, who likes to run, dunk, and block shots from the weakside of all things, thus brought in to do the opposite of what Dellavedova does. The NBA sample size is meaninglessly small; nonetheless, the 49 D-League starts highlight a player with an NBA physical profile and who could be a pest on the coach’s-favourite end, but who lacks NBA offensive skill outside of his physical tools. Not a shooter, prober, consistent driver (doesn’t do anything from a standing start), handler or finisher, Payton is good at the bits that it seems harder to be good at, yet has all the rest to prove still.

Player Plan: Has an unguaranteed minimum salary contract for next season, but would have to go some in camp to earn the spot. Nevertheless, in having no guarantee dates other than the league-wide one, he will likely have the opportunity to come to camp and do so, if he is not trade filler. Would probably be suited to a two-way con-tract now that those are things.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
