Sixers Trade #10 Pick Elfrid Payton To Magic For Dario Saric at #12


The Philadelphia 76ers drafted Louisiana-Lafayette point guard Elfrid Payton with the No. 10 pick and then traded the explosive point guard to the Orlando Magic to the draft rights to European big man, Dario Saric and a 2015 second round pick.

 Saric recently signed a 3-year deal with the club Anadolu Efes Istanbul and won’t be available for at least two years.  The sweet shooting 20 year-old big man will free up a roster spot for the next few season. 

Payton gives the Magic a big PG that can play tenacious defense and distribute the ball.  Payton does have to improve his shooting, but he’s big enought to compliment Victor Oladipo at either guard spot.
