The Thunder used the 14th pick in the 2015 NBA Draft to take guard Cameron Payne from Murray State. There were other intriguing options on the board — Jerian Grant, Kelly Oubre, Sam Dekker — but the supposed promised player was the one they went with in the end.
Payne is a 6-foot-2 lefty playmaking guard that will come in as the third point on the team behind Russell Westbrook and D.J. Augustin. Also important: He talks in the third person and doesn’t know how to use a selfie stick.
