Suns' Cameron Payne: Inks two-year deal with Suns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payne agreed Tuesday with the Suns on a one-year contract that includes a lightly guaranteed team option for 2021-22, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Payne hasn't seen any NBA minutes this season, but he was excellent in the G League with the Texas Legends, averaging 23.2 points, 7.3 assists, 4.7 rebounds and 2.9 combined steals/blocks per game. He likely won't see much action with a Phoenix squad that's already deep at point guard, but he could end up seeing regular run off the bench if the Suns fall out of playoff contention quickly.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payne scored 22 points (8-23 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and collected eight rebounds along with 10 assists in a loss to Agua Caliente on Sunday.

He also collected three steals and one block but committed six turnovers. The 25-year-old is averaging 23.2 points, 4.9 boards and 8.0 dimes in 15 games with Texas this season.

Cameron Payne: Explodes for 43 points Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payne totaled 43 points (17-24 FG, 6-10 3Pt, 2-3 FT) in a win over Iowa on Saturday.

Payne rode a hot hand to the first 40-point game of his G League career. After shooting just 12-for-36 (33.3 percent) over his previous two games. the 2005 lottery pick was nearly unstoppable from the field, making 17-of-24 shots, including 6-of-10 from beyond the arc. If he is able to sustain similar production over an extended stretch, Payne could catch of the eye of NBA squads in search of a playmaker with scoring upside.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payne totaled 16 points (5-17 FG, 3-11 3Pt, 2-4 FT) and dished 12 assists in Saturday's loss to Austin.

Payne struggled with his shot for the first time since joining the Legends, but he made up for it by totaling a season-high 12 assists en route to his first double-double of the campaign. The 2015 lottery pick has started each of the last two games and figures to maintain the role as long as he continues to produce.

Cameron Payne: Inks deal in China
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payne has signed a contract with Shanxi of the Chinese Basketball Association, Nicola Lupo of Sportando reports.

Payne joined the Raptors for training camp earlier in the year, but after being waived in October, he'll take his talents overseas. The former first-round pick out of Murray State appeared in 40 games during the 2018 NBA season, averaging 6.3 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.8 rebounds across stops in Chicago and Cleveland.

Cameron Payne: Waived by Raptors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payne was waived by the Raptors on Saturday, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.

Payne, who joined the Raptors in the offseason after averaging 6.3 points, 2.7 assists and 1.8 rebounds across 40 games for Chicago and Cleveland last year, was waived Saturday. If he clears waivers, there's a good chance he'll join Raptors 905 for the start of 2019-20.

Raptors' Cameron Payne: Joining Raptors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payne has agreed to a two-year deal with the Raptors, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

A former lottery pick by the Thunder in 2015, Payne has bounced around the league, seeing action for Oklahoma City, Chicago and Cleveland. The former Murray State product joined the Mavericks for 2019 summer league, averaging 20.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.7 steals across 28.9 minutes in three games. His performances were enough for the Raptors to take notice. Payne will likely slot in as the third point guard option on Toronto behind Kyle Lowry and Fred VanVleet, so opportunities for significant run may be limited.

Mavericks' Cameron Payne: Continues building case in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payne pitched in 32 points (9-17 FG, 7-12 3Pt, 7-7 FT), three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 29 minutes during the Mavericks' 105-101 loss to the Kings in a Las Vegas Summer League game Monday.

Payne saw the most action since his rookie 2015 campaign last season while splitting time with the Bulls and Cavaliers, shooting a career-high 43.0 percent. Perhaps the improved accuracy was a sign of things to come, as Payne has been lights out over his first three summer league games. He came into Monday's contest shooting 50.0 percent, a figure he improved with a 52.9 percent showing against the Kings. Payne should continue seeing plenty of run during remaining games in Las Vegas, providing him with a platform to build plenty of momentum ahead of training camp and preseason.

Mavericks' Cameron Payne: Solid first impression
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payne generated 18 points (7-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four rebounds, four assists and three steals across 27 minutes during the Mavericks' 96-92 win over the Nets in a Las Vegas Summer League game Friday.

Payne has achieved journeyman status despite having just four season of NBA service time. The 2015 first-round pick of the Thunder averaged just 17.8 minutes per contest during the 2018-19 season while seeing time with both the Bulls and Cavaliers, his third and fourth professional stops. Shooting has remained an Achilles heel for the 24-year-old, so his 70.0 percent showing from the field Friday was encouraging. Payne will look to continue making his case for a longer look during subsequent games in the desert.

Mavericks' Cameron Payne: Joins Mavs for summer league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payne will play for the Mavericks' summer league squad, Bobby Karalla of the Mavericks' official site reports.

Payne has hopped around the NBA during his four years in the league, playing for three different teams. Despite the short stints and underwhelming play, Dallas is interested to see what he can do in their system during summer league. Last season, he appeared in 40 games between Cleveland and Chicago, averaging 6.3 points, 2.7 assists and 1.8 rebounds in 17.8 minutes.

Cameron Payne: Won't stick with Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cavaliers informed Payne on Friday that he wouldn't be signed for the rest of the season, ending his stint with the team, Chris Fedor of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

With Payne's second 10-day contract expiring, the Cavaliers evidently determined that they hadn't seen enough from the guard during his nearly three-week stay in Cleveland to justify keeping him around the rest of the way. Over his eight games (one start) with the Cavaliers, Payne averaged 8.0 points (on 48.9 percent shooting from the field), 2.5 assists, 2.1 rebounds, 1.0 steal and 0.9 triples in 19.4 minutes per contest. The Cavaliers are expected to use the roster spot created by Payne's departure to bring in another player on a 10-day deal.
