Sure! I’m not high on Payne and probably would’ve rather had Bullock if given the choice, but worth the flier.
Side note: this takes the Bucks to significantly more expensive of a tax bill vs keeping the spot open. Credit to ownership for that. https://t.co/izsJfHsm2O

Cam Payne and Jae Crowder in Milwaukee together has 2021 me absolutely disgusted.
Great landing spot for him though, he’ll make a fine backup to Dame and can play alongside him too at times.
