The 29-year-old now gets a chance to go to a contending team where he can have a bigger role.

Payne was upset when he was traded from the Suns, as he said on Instagram Live: “I wish I was in Phoenix still. It is what it is man, they trying to win the chip and I respect it. I feel like they could’ve won the chip with me though.”

A reunion with the Suns is not possible.

Payne averaged 10.3 points and 4.5 assists in 48 games for Phoenix last season. He ended off his time in the Valley with a bang, scoring 31 points in the Suns’ Game 6 loss against the Nuggets in the Western Conference Semifinals.
