The Suns and G Cameron Payne have agreed to a two-year contract on Tuesday.
The Suns have a gluttony of guards, so there is little chance that Payne will have an impact when the season resumes, assuming the team stays healthy.

Malcolm Miller has earned a spot on the final 15-man roster for the Raptors.
Miller was ensured a spot after the team waived both Isaiah Taylor and Cameron Payne. This is the first time he’s made an NBA team outright to start the season, and Nick Nurse recently said that he is close to being in the rotation. That said, Miller is well off the fantasy radar.

The Raptors reportedly waived Cameron Payne and Devin Robinson.
This transaction gets the Raptors roster to 15 players. Cameron Payne has always had an interesting statistical profile for fantasy, but he just can't string good games together when they actually count. Maybe he gets another shot, but the former lottery pick is running out of chances.

Cameron Payne has officially signed a two-year deal with the Toronto Raptors.
Payne earned a spot back with an NBA team after a strong showing in Summer League. He has an uphill battle to get rotation minutes as the third PG on the Raptors' bench, however, and as a result is unlikely to hold any fantasy value.

The Raptors and Cameron Payne have agreed to a two-year deal, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.
There are partial guarantees on the first season, and Payne will be looking to carve out work as the third-string point guard. This now puts the Raptors at 16 guaranteed contracts with Chris Boucher and Malcolm Miller set to join the group in the near future. Payne averaged 20.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.7 steals in three Summer League games with the Mavs.

Cameron Payne put up 32 points, three rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and seven triples on 9-of-17 shooting in 28 minutes.
Payne has been in the league for four years now so this is what is expected of him. Most of his points came off of triples and he didn't do much else besides score. He'll probably crack the Mavericks' roster and add some depth but he shouldn't be fantasy relevant next season.

Cameron Payne scored 10 points in the Mavericks' 113-81 win against the Rockets on Saturday night, adding eight rebounds, six assists, four steals and two turnovers.
Playing for his fourth team, Payne hopes to find a home with the Mavericks after tonight's performance. This is the second solid Summer League game for Payne and he showed a little bit of everything, contributing across the board. The Dallas backcourt is not set, even with the signing of Seth Curry, and Payne could have a shot of making the final roster.

The Cavs have informed Cameron Payne they will not be signing him for the remainder of the season.
Cameron Payne has hit the free agent market again after his second 10-day contract expired with the Cavs on Friday. In nine games and one start, he played well with a 49.1 field goal percentage and averaged 8.2 points, 2.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 0.9 steals and 1.0 triples in 19.6 minutes. At 24 years old, Payne can still turn things around in a career that has been plagued by injuries thus far but don't expect him to pop up on the fantasy radar this season.

Cam Payne delivered 11 points, four rebounds, three assists, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer in Monday's win over the Bulls.
Payne's currently halfway into his second 10-day contract with the Cavs, and even if they choose to let him walk at the end of the week he's certainly played well enough for some other team to at least give him consideration. It's probably not great that Payne was the best guard option today, but that's the state of things for Cleveland. He's fine to use in deep leagues until his deal runs out, especially since he's playing for his next paycheck.

Cameron Payne has signed another 10-day deal with the Cavs.
After these 10 days, the Cavs will either let Payne walk or sign him for the rest of the year. He's averaged 8.8 points, 2.8 assists and 1.5 threes in 17.8 mpg across four games with the Cavs. If those numbers float your boat, go for it. You've got 10 days of similar production left.

Cameron Payne scored 16 points with three triples in 22 minutes on Wednesday night.
Payne nearly played as much as Collin Sexton, and even if you account for garbage time that's really not a good thing for anyone. He looks ready to fire at will to make the most of his 10-day deal but that's not going to move the needle outside of 30-team formats.

Cameron Payne scored 10 points on 4-of-8 shooting (including two threes) with two rebounds and three assists in 22 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's loss to the Pacers.
Payne is a bit of a stat magnet but at the same time he has stat set issues and he's also not good. He could easily take this 10-day contract as a green light to do anything he can to stay in the league, and given that he's playing in Cleveland anything goes. If you're looking for a risky but interesting streamer give him a look.
January 6, 2019, 5:31 pmCameron PayneG, Cleveland Cavaliers
The Cavaliers are signing Cameron Payne to a 10-day contract.
Payne was waived by the Bulls just three days ago and he's somehow found another team already. The Cavs are currently first in the lottery race and this signing should only help with that. He's only relevant in leagues where you're also trying to lose.

Cameron Payne has been waived by the Bulls.
That was the reported plan with the Bulls adding an extra player in Thursday's Justin Holiday trade, and now it's official. Ryan Arcidiacono and Shaq Harrison remain in the Thunderdome with Chicago's backup point guard spot at stake.

The Bulls are likely to waive Cameron Payne as a result of Thursday's trade with the Grizzlies.
This seems standard, as Payne has fallen out of favor over the last few weeks having been passed up by Ryan Arcidiacono and Shaq Harrison. There was nothing here anyway.
