It Took Just 2 Practices For The Chicago Bulls To Realize Cameron Payne Wasn’t An NBA Talent
It seems as if the Chicago Bulls are having a little buyers remorse.
One anonymous member of the Bulls’ staff is not even close to impressed with Cameron Payne, one of their deadline acquisitions from last year, stating he realized it almost immediately that he was not a fit for this team at all, according to the Chicago-Sun Times.
“We knew the second practice (after he was acquired) that he couldn’t play at (an NBA) level,” a source told Cowley. “The only reason it took two practices was because we thought maybe it was nerves in the first one.
“Any (Bulls) coach who says differently is lying. … We got ‘Garred’ on that one.”
During his two-year career, Cameron Payne is known more for his pregame dances with Russell Westbrook than his actual play on the court. Then, he was traded to the Bulls. and those dance moves still haven’t translated into success on the court.
Payne played in just 11 games for the Bulls last year after being traded in February, averaging 4.9 points, 1.5 rebounds, and 1.4 assists on just 33.3 percent shooting.
