Cameron Payne’s journey in the NBA has taken a new turn as he becomes an unrestricted free agent. The San Antonio Spurs waived the 29-year-old guard earlier this week, and he has now cleared waivers, as reported by Yossi Gozlan of HoopsHype.

Payne’s strong performance last season with the Phoenix Suns, where he averaged 10.3 points, 2.2 rebounds, and 4.5 assists in 20.2 minutes per game, is expected to garner interest from contending teams looking to bolster their rosters.

As the free agency market heats up, Payne’s availability will likely spark interest among teams seeking to add an experienced and versatile guard to their ranks.
