Adreian Payne had played 102 games across four NBA seasons mostly based on the potential of what he could be — a pick-and-pop big that would fit the modern game. The problem is his shot has not fallen while in the NBA.
Still, Orlando thought enough of that potential to give Payne a two-way contract this year.
Now Payne faces another setback, a broken hand.
Hopefully, he will be able to get back on track this season.
