Payton posted eight points (4-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt), nine assists, eight rebounds, four steals and one block with no turnovers in 24 minutes during Wednesday's preseason win over the Trail Blazers.

With Chris Paul sitting out for rest, Payton was in charge of running point for the Suns off the bench while Cameron Payne got the start. Though Payton put up an impressive two-way statline, there will be limited opportunities for him to do so during the regular season since he's the third point guard on the depth chart.
