After Apparently Departing the Warriors, Gary Payton Ii Clarifies His Instagram Story!

Warriors supporters are obviously sad to see guard Gary Payton II leave the Bay Area as he is well-liked in Dub Nation. However, he is allegedly close to signing a three-year contract to return to the Pacific Northwest. G

This is why Warriors supporters were perplexed by Payton’s mysterious Instagram story on Friday. A few hours later, Payton clarified on Twitter that he was merely making reference to the fact that the Portland Trail Blazers are paying him.

Later, Payton shared a second Instagram story expressing his passion for the Warriors with blue and yellow heart emojis.

Payton attended training camp before this past season after spending time with the Warriors during the close of the 2020–21 campaign on two 10-day contracts, although he was initially released just before the season began. But the Warriors signed him for slightly more than $1.9 million and added him back to the roster as their fifteenth player.

Payton‘s defense and offensive vigor made him so useful to the Warriors that he was a key player in their rotation the whole season. It was viewed as a major setback to their aspirations of winning the NBA championship when he shattered his elbow in Game 2 of the second-round series against the Memphis Grizzlies.

However, Payton made an amazing comeback for Game 2 of the NBA Finals against the Boston Celtics, and he ended up scoring 15 points in the Warriors’ victory in Game 5 at Chase Center. He assisted Golden State in winning its fourth championship in eight seasons a few nights later, and the team celebrated appropriately at TD Garden and during the parade in San Francisco a few days later.

According to reports, Payton will now receive $28 million over the course of his three-year deal with the Blazers. The Warriors were not willing to match that asking price for the 29-year-old. That shouldn’t lessen the reciprocal love that exists.
