Suns won't re-sign Payton, Len

Publish date:

The Phoenix Suns will not re-sign point guard Elfrid Payton or center Alex Len, according to a report from

The move will give the Suns roughly $10 million in cap space.

Phoenix acquired Payton at the February trade deadline from the Orlando Magic. He started 19 games for the Suns and averaged 11.8 points, 5.3 rebounds and 6.2 assists while shooting 43.5 percent from the field and just 20 percent from three.

Len, meanwhile, has been with the Suns since 2013. The franchise drafted him fifth overall in the 2013 draft hoping he could be their center for the long-haul.

The 7-footer, however, has been a huge disappointment and carries career averages of 7.2 points and 6.5 rebounds in 335 games.
