Here's what Cam Payne needs to do to bounce back with the Phoenix Suns in 2022-23.

For better or for worse, Cam Payne may be the barometer for how the Phoenix Suns’ bench unit fares in 2022-23. After an offseason that took a “run it back” approach outside of a few minor additions, there’s understandable concern about the Suns’ second unit — most of which stems from the backcourt, where Payne’s disappearing act in the playoffs...

On the latest Bourguet Breakdown, a healthy Dario Saric could revitalize Cam Payne for the Phoenix Suns.

Phoenix Suns fans have spent the last month waiting for a Kevin Durant trade to materialize, but in the meantime, they largely have the same roster to look forward to next season. Well, almost the same, thanks to Dario Saric. Outside of extending Deandre Ayton and Devin Booker, the Suns’ only means to improve at this point lies in continuity,...

Cam Payne's disappearing act in the 2022 NBA Playoffs has added to the Phoenix Suns' list of needs in the offseason.

The Phoenix Suns can still learn a few lessons from Monday's shorthanded loss to the Memphis Grizzlies.

Monday’s literal last-second loss to the Memphis Grizzlies was just about as close to an outlier as you could get for the Phoenix Suns — not because the Grizz are a bad team or anything like that, but because it was so far outside the norms of what this group is capable of at full strength.

Just over a year ago, Cam Payne wasn’t on an NBA roster. Fast-forward 15 months, and his three-year, $19 million deal to re-sign with the Phoenix Suns is one of the league’s biggest steals. For Payne, there was no question about where he wanted to be as he approached his first free agency. “I knew from the jump I wanted...
