Payton, 26, has started in 25 games for the Knicks this season.
The veteran is putting up 11.9 points, 3.8 boards and 3.7 assists per game this season.
The Knicks have been a fun surprise story. They are the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference with an 11-14 record.
Although the Knicks could use Payton’s services, they have a bunch of guards. Knicks guard Immanuel Quickley, who is the organization’s prized rookie, is gathering 12.0 points, 2.7 assists and 2.3 rebounds off the bench this season.
