How much does one view him as worth in FA now? Personally, after seeing Jevon Carter's regression this year, I'd be hesitant to do more than 3 year/18 million for Payne.

He's a good, scrappy change of pace bench PG, but anything more than 6 million a year would be an overpay given that he only plays 16-18 mins a game.

The major piece to add in next year's draft or free agency (through the BAE perhaps) is an upgrade on the Moore / Galloway / Carter positions. Now all those guys have their virtues, but none have consistently shown what we need from that combo guard spot. If we added a Clarkson or Dinwiddie type player in that position, I really think that'd elevate us into contenders.

The draft has an interesting bunch of players in that mould we could target with our pick - Jared Butler, David Duke, Miles McBridge, Davion Mitchell, Chris Duarte, Josh Alexander.

I wouldn't pay him that much.

I think that $12M/3 years would be enough to keep him.


Seems like earlier people were saying like $27/3.

In his last three games Cam Payne averages:

13 points, 6 assists, 2.7 rebounds and 0.3 TOs, shooting 7/13 from three.

All of that in 22 mpg and his defense has been pretty good too.

20/1 ast/to ratio not bad.

Really an underappreciated part of his game since he's joined the Suns. He just doesn't turn the ball over.

I think we've reached a large enough sample size to say Payne is officially a good backup PG. Hell of a career turnaround.

Yeah, between Paul, Payne and Bridges, we are really solid there...if only Book could cut his in half. Ayton is up and down..good passer but mishandles...some due to bad passes, though the majority of those are credited to the bad pass as they should be.

But for a few games, everyone had turnovers for whatever reason. Maybe with the Clips...they are great at forcing them with their length and tenacity...I remember George getting like 5 steals against Dallas last year. Worried about facing them in playoffs.

I think it will be tough to avoid both LA teams until the WCF. That requires us to get 2 or 3 and them both 4/5 OR us in 1, 4 or 5 and them in 2 or 3 and 6 or 7. Not sure which is more likely.

Yeah Booker is definitely the main culprit. Suns are 5th in the league for least TOs per game so it's definitely a strength. Part of a more general theme of them being a disciplined team that doesn't give games away.

It's funny this current suns team is basically the antithesis of past suns teams in every way. Good defense being the most shocking thing since that wasn't a strength even when they were good (although should be noted those SSOL were average defensively even though people thought they were bad)
