Vertical Wingspan Draft Range
35.5 6-7.25 11-22
  • Payne seems to be one of the risers of the draft process, as more people watch him. He has terrific scoring instincts, as well as strong shooting ability and an understanding of the pick-and-roll. He's also a solid passer that can make some plays for others. There are some questions, such as strength and pure athleticism in reference to getting to the rim, but Payne should at least play well as a solid scoring backup point, if not more.
  • Payne's a high IQ player that isn't the quickest guy, but he has great handle, great feel for getting to his spots, and terrific instincts in the pick-and-roll. He's also a very good shooter, and has a strong in-between game that should play well in the NBA when he gets to the top of the paint. Defensively, he has long arms and profiles well against point guards due to that and his quick feet.
  • Payne isn't the most explosive athlete in the world, and because of it he doesn't finish well when he gets all the way to the rim. Another problem there is his frame, as he's only about 185 pounds and pretty thin. He needs to continue working on his body to deal with the grind of the NBA both on offense and defense.
