From ESPN's Chad Ford (Insider):
"Payne is a terrific shooter, has the size and athletic ability to play in the post and had a stellar senior season ... Payne sat out the combine after discovering he has been dealing with mononucleosis. Payne has been battling mono, undiagnosed, since January, making his senior season even more impressive. His measurements, 6-9½ in shoes with a 7-4 wingspan, continue to make him one of the most intriguing prospects in the draft."
*Payne did not participate in the drills portion at the NBA Draft Combine.
