In the midst of a rebuilding season, the Phoenix Suns are adding another young guard to their mix.
According to multiple reports, the Suns have acquired Orlando Magic guard Elfrid Payton for a second-round pick. Payton is in the midst of a solid season, averaging career highs in scoring (13.0 points per game) and field goal percentage (52 percent).
Phoenix's guard rotation currently consists of Tyler Ulis and rookie Josh Gray after Isaiah Canaan suffered a gruesome leg injury on Jan. 31 (Feb. 1, PHL time).
