Agree on Payne. I loved Giorgi, but what we really needed out of our backup 5 was rebounding, rim protection and the ability to switch on screens. Payne seems to excel at all 3 of these but at the very least will be a huge upgrade from Giorgi on defense/rebounding.Payne is most definitely an X factor. You're absolutely right, he could have a big impact.
Sneaky good pickup as he didn’t put up big numbers at UF, but should fill his role nicely.
