Payne has bounced around between a few teams over his six year career and now finds himself in a competition for the backup point guard position in Toronto. Last season, Payne averaged 6.3 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 2.7 assists in 31 total games for the Cleveland Cavaliers and Chicago Bulls. The 24-year-old point guard had an impressive Summer League this year for the Mavericks, averaging 20 points and 2.7 steals in three games of action.
Additionally, the Raptors have also signed Devin Robinson to a one-year non-guaranteed contract, according to Blake Murphy of The Athletic.

Robinson is a 6’7″ wing who has spent his two professional seasons with the Washington Wizards but the majority of his time was playing for their G League affiliate, the Capital City Go-Go. In 22 games for Capital City last year, Robinson averaged 19.9 points, 8.1 rebounds, and 1.5 assists. The non-guaranteed factor in Robinson’s deal means that he will likely have training camp to try and crack the full roster. The Raptor’s have now filled 19 of their 20 training camp spots, however there will be another opening if they do not pick up Malcolm Miller’s guarantee date on Jul. 24.
