The San Antonio Spurs today announced that the team has waived guard Cameron Payne.
Payne was acquired on July 17, along with a 2025 second round pick (via New Orleans) and cash considerations, from the Phoenix Suns in exchange for a protected second round pick in 2024.
The Suns traded Payne with a second-round pick and cash to the Spurs for a future protected second-round pick in a deal that cleared salary cap space.
Payne played a key reserve role on a Suns team that went to the 2021 NBA Finals. The 6-foot-1 guard averaged 10.8 points and 4.5 assists last season, his fourth in Phoenix.
