  No deal for LaMelo Ball as Colangelo buys into Aussie club SYDNEY, Australia — LaMelo Ball’s bid to be a club owner in Australia hasn't worked out. The American is expected to be a top pick in the upcoming NBA draft later this year. The Australian league — called the National Basketball League — has announced that a license for the Wollongong-based Hawks would go to a consortium led by ex-Philadelphia 76ers general manager Bryan Colangelo.

The Phoenix Suns have signed guard Cameron Payne to a two-year contract, sources told The Athletic's Shams Charania.

Payne, 25, last appeared in the NBA during the 2018-19 season, which he split between the Chicago Bulls and Cleveland Cavaliers.

The 26-39 Suns possess the second-worst record of the 22 teams set to resume the NBA season at Walt Disney World in July. Phoenix will need to pass five teams in the Western Conference standings in order to secure the organization's first postseason berth since 2010.
