Cameron Payne didn't make much of an impression in his brief time with the Bulls last season and will have to wait to change that in the upcoming season.
The Vertical's Shama Charania reported that Payne will have foot surgery which will keep him out of action until late November.
After being traded from the Thunder to the Bulls in the Taj Gibson/Doug McDermott deal, Payne played 11 games for the Bulls last season. He averaged 4.9 points per game while shooting 33.3 percent from the field in just under 13 minutes per game.
The Murray State product was the No. 14 pick in the 2015 draft, but has yet to find consistent playing time or production in the NBA. The arrivals of Kris Dunn, Zach LaVine and David Nwaba have created an upcoming competition for playing time at the guard spots for the Bulls. Payne missing preseason and starting the regular season on the shelf won't help his cause.
