In a somewhat surprising move, the Wolves have assigned 2nd year forward Adreian Payne to the Erie BayHawks of the NBA D-League. Payne, who has been skirting around the edges of the rotation all season, has lost playing time recently as the team has recommitted to Nemanja Bjelica and Nikola Pekovic's return to the active roster has added another big to the mix.

That said, this will likely be a short assignment, as most D-league assignments are, and I would expect Payne back with the club in the next couple of weeks.
