Payton was traded to the Suns, and he should step into their starting PG spot and play a lot.
Devin Booker moves back to playing most of his minutes at SG but will still handle the ball plenty.
Josh Jackson likely moves back to a bench role and serves as the sixth man, but there's a the potential that TJ Warren could get some start at PF to give Jackson some starts at SF. One of Bender or Chriss would have to play off the bench in those games.
Tyler Ulis may still get spot minutes as the backup PG, but it's also completely possible he gets excised from the rotation completely.
Elfrid Payton is the winner here, especially since he was splitting minutes recently in ORL.
