(Murray State’s Cameron) Payne would certainly not hurt himself if he went back to school — “he would be top 10” in 2016, one scout says — but he’s already shown he can create shots for himself and for teammates. He also plays with an edge that scouts like.

“His future is ahead of him,” a Northwest Division executive said. “There’s only one question you ask about a player from a small school: does he have talent? And he does. And for a left-handed player he’s not John Lucas or Lenny Wilkens, who never goes to the right hand. He’s a good shooter, not a great shooter, and he can play pick and roll. He can do all of the things you need a guy to do at the point.”
