Suns will not Re-sign Len or Payton


The Phoenix Suns will not re-sign guard Elfrid Payton or center Alex Len.

Payton had a short stint with the team after being traded from Orlando, playing just 23 games for Phoenix. Len has had ankle and other injury issues that limited his playing time and availability. The two were set to become restricted free agents, which doesn’t make this news much of a surprise.

Len averaged 7.2 points and 6.5 rebounds in five seasons with Phoenix. He earned a total of $19,960,979 in his career.

Payton has earned a total of $10,849,500 in four seasons with the Magic and Suns.
