Notes 
 Payne played a key role in Phoenix's championship run last season, as he averaged 8.4 points, 3.6 assists, and 2.4 rebounds with 48/89/44 shooting splits across 18.0 minutes per contest. He made his bones in Games 1-2 of the Western Conference Finals when he started in place of Chris Paul and averaged robust numbers: 20.0 points, 9.0 assists, 3.0 stocks, and 2.0 rebounds. The Suns inked Payne to a three-year deal in the offseason, and he can reasonably be expected to see a small uptick in minutes off the bench and a top-175 finish.
