Scorchers are thrilled to announce the signing of Devontavius Payne for the BBL Championship campaign.The guard returns to the BBL after playing for the Plymouth Raiders last season – averaging 11 points and three rebounds per game. He originally signed for the Glasgow Rocks at the beginning of the season, but the deal fell through. The 24-year-old, nicknamed ‘Uno’, had a formidable college career with East Tennessee State averaging nine points per game and shooting 39% from three-point range.
Standing at 6’2, Payne returns to the UK for his second season as a pro and joins Creon Raftopoulos’ side to boost the Scorchers play-off hopes. You can see Uno in action for Scorchers for the first time on December 20th as we take on Cheshire Phoenix at SSP!

Devontavius reminds me a little bit of Tony Hicks in the sense that he’s a combo guard that’s capable of scoring. I watched him when he played at Plymouth and I had actually looked at him as a rookie before he joined them. I expect big things from him. Glasgow moved quickly to get him but unfortunately that broke through. He’s a guy who has BBL experience so I’m really happy to have him join the Scorchers.
