Thunder may have made a draft promise to Cameron Payne
The Oklahoma City Thunder need a back up point guard, and it appears as if they've zeroed in on Cameron Payne to the point that they've given him a draft-night promise. ESPN's Chad Ford has more:
"As for the Thunder, since late last week there's been a lot of buzz among rival GMs that the Thunder promised Cameron Payne they'd take him at 14. I don't know how much of that is smoke, but he is a great fit at 14 and talent wise he may be the best pure point guard in the draft."
This wouldn't be the first time the Thunder have made draft promises – they gave one to Reggie Jackson when he was drafted. As Ford says, this may all be sound and fury signifying nothing, but it also wouldn't exactly be against the Thunder's draft M.O.
