Payne, a four-year veteran, had played sparingly for Orlando’s big league club, seeing action in just five games for the Magic. In 107 career games he’s averaged 4.2 points and 2.9 rebounds in 13.1 minutes per game.

Payne is the second NBA personality to be impacted by the developing scandal, which Shaker Samman of The Ringer has more details about.
