The worst kept secret in the NBA draft was that the Thunder loved Cameron Payne. So often small school guys slide in the draft. Coming out of Murray State, Cameron Payne has the look and feel of a young Dwayne Wade. He may not be as athletic, but his shot is ahead of where Wade’s was coming into the NBA. Certainly, a perfect insurance policy for Russ Westbrook. Reggie Jackson thrived in his role of backing up Westbrook. And I honestly feel like Cam Payne has a much higher ceiling than Reggie Jackson.
BOLD PREDICTION: C-Payne will be 75% of what Dwayne Wade was in his prime.
