The Orlando Magic have released two-way player Adreian Payne. He was playing for the Lakeland Magic.
Payne was released by the Magic after his name surface in the Michigan State scandal. A sexual assault scandal has tarnished the Spartans image, including its sports teams.
Larry Nassar, who used to be affiliated with the school, reportedly sexually assaulted multiple women. His name came up on Friday during an ESPN report.
Payne played for the Spartans from 2010 through 2014. He, along with former player Keith Appling, was accused of raping a female student in 2010 when all where in their freshman orientation.
The accusation has been out there; however, the details that ESPN reported are new. The Magic did not want to suffer backlash from this report so they released him.
Carolyn Schaner, the victim, said to the Michigan State Police that Appling and Payne “penetrated her vaginally, anally and orally against her will in their dorm room in 2010.” Payne, when he was questioned, reportedly told the police, “[he could] understand how she would feel that she was not free to leave.”
Payne was a first-round draft pick by the Atlanta Hawks in 2014. He has played in 107 NBA games in his career.
The 26-year-old has played for the Hawks, Minnesota Timberwolves and the Orlando Magic in his NBA career. He has also played for the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, Austin Spurs, Erie Bayhawks and the Lakeland Magic in his G-League career.
