Cameron Payne has lived on the fringe of the NBA for a few seasons now, unable to carve out a role.

The Oklahoma City draft pick from 2015 has also played for the Bulls and Cavaliers, plus had a camp invite from the Raptors at the start of this season but didn’t make the squad and ended up playing in China. He then came back in January and suited up in the G-League — averaging 23.2 points a game for the Texas Legends — until it was shut down due to the coronavirus.

Now the Phoenix Suns will give him another chance, announcing they had signed him for the season restart in Orlando. This is a two-year contract covering the restart and next season (although that second season likely is not fully guaranteed), something reported by Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Phoenix is searching for point guard depth behind Ricky Rubio and Jevon Carter — Payne, Elie Okobo, Ty Jerome, and Jalen Lecque are all in the mix. And this summer, the Suns are expected to look at point guard options in free agency.

It’s another chance for Payne, who has not been able to stick in the NBA. While his skill set should fit the modern game, he doesn’t quite shoot or distribute well enough to earn a coach’s trust. Now he gets another chance with Monty Williams, Orlando is essentially his tryout.

JUCO football season moving to spring is ominious sign for FBS football in fall

There will be no junior college football this fall.

Another college football domino falls with the junior college season moving to the spring. The majority of fall sports, in fact, have been moved to the spring semester upon recommendations from the NJCAA Presidential Advisory Council and the NJCAA Board of Regents.

“Our greatest focus is and always has been providing the best opportunities for our student-athletes,” stated Dr. Christopher Parker, NJCAA President & CEO. “Through a unified effort from our Presidential Advisory Council, the Board of Regents, and leadership staff, our most recent plan of action provides a path that keeps our student-athletes competing at the highest level with proper safety measures in place. As we move forward as an association, we will continue to provide opportunities for our student-athletes, coaches, and all those involved with the NJCAA to be safe and successful.”

The affected sports besides football include men’s and women’s soccer and court volleyball. But the winter sports will not begin until January at the earliest with some championships moved from March to April.

Spring sports remain unchanged for now.

Junior college football season is another bad sign for fans.

The decision from the junior colleges will have immediate and far-reaching effects on recruiting, writes Max Olson of The Athletic.

In addition to the impact it’ll have on the student-athletes who won’t be playing this fall, the decision also is the latest sign that playing any football in the fall is looking like a Hail Mary.

The Big Ten and Pac-12 have already canceled non-conference games, the Ivy Leagues pushed their season to the spring as have several lower-level programs, Texas high school football isn’t expected to be played and now there won’t be any JUCO football.

How is Alabama, Ohio State, Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Oklahoma, Florida, Oregon, Michigan, Notre Dame and all the other programs in the nation expect to play when they’re facing a 4th-and-long with no timeouts left and a running clock?

It’s an unfortunate reality. Being optimistic isn’t going to change anything now. It’s why college football coaches and players are hoping to convince the public to wear face masks with the hope it’ll slow the spread of the coronavirus and the season will be able to stick in the fall.

Time is running out and the decision by the NJCAA is the latest in a long sign of bad news for all of us hoping to see the season as scheduled.
