The Philadelphia 76ers selected Louisiana-Lafayette guard Elfrid Payton with the No. 10 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.

The 6-3, 180-pound guard averaged 19.0 points and 5.9 assists per game in 2013-14 for the Ragin' Cajuns, who finished 23-12 and lost to Creighton in the NCAA Round of 64.

Payton has a very questionable jump shot, but has impressed with every other part of his game throughout the workout process. His stock has soared in the past few weeks, as he has shown he can get to the basket easily and guard dynamic point guards.

Ken Berger of CBSSports.com reported that the Kings considered him with the No. 8 pick. He could be traded, according to Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.
