Magic deal Payton to Suns for pick

As first reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Suns will acquire Elfrid Payton from the Orlando Magic at the mere cost of a second round pick.

Booker has taken into a much more active playmaking role after Bledsoe's departure, which has shown in his overall game, now averaging 24.1 points, 4.9 assists, and 4.4 rebounds in his third season in the league. In exchange for Payton's services, the Suns are sending the Magic the Memphis' Grizzlies 2018 second-round draft pick. According to Spotrac.com, Payton will make just over $3.3 million this season.

Payton, the No. 10 overall pick in the 2014 National Basketball Association draft, is averaging 13.0 points, 6.3 assists and 4.0 rebounds per game this season.

But Brand was next in line to take over if Rosenstein recused himself, or was removed and not immediately replaced. Both Rosenstein and Sessions have become the subjects of Trump's ire in connection with the probe.

Payton was scheduled to become a free agent this summer, so the Magic chose to trade him in order to avoid losing the point guard for nothing. However, he was immediately dealt to Orlando on draft night. He also sank 42.5 percent of his field-goal attempts, 26.2 percent of his long-distance tries and 55.1 percent of his foul shots.

Payton is averaging a career-best 13 points on 37 percent shooting from three.
