Cameron Payne (Jones fracture) will have no restrictions at training camp according to Sam Presti.
Payne’s big issue this year will be having the game slow down for him, and one of Billy Donovan’s mistakes last year was not developing him during the regular season so he’d be ready in the playoffs. We saw similar game-speed issues for Payne during Summer League, but once things start to click he can be a productive fantasy asset so we’re watching him closely. He’s not yet worth a flier pick in 12-14 team leagues but if he gains momentum in the preseason we’ll let you know.
