Spurs waive Cameron Payne

The veteran guard averaged 10.8 points and 4.5 assists with the Suns last season.

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.
