Adreian Payne has had a rough rookie season in the NBA, but that could all start to change now that he's been traded from Atlanta to Minnesota.

Payne became a legendary figure during his time at Michigan State for both his play on the court, and his actions off the court.

NBA prospects always thought that Payne could be a very productive NBA player, but the Hawks have found a great chemistry, leaving him out of the lineup.  He's spent most of the season in the NBDL, where he is doing very well.

This morning it was announced that Payne would be heading north, to play for the Minnesota Timberwolves.  He is expected to play a much bigger role there than he has so far in Atlanta.

We hope Payne gets his chance to shine on the court, because nobody deserves it more than him.
