College career
Adreian Payne practicing before the 2011 Carrier Classic
As a freshman, Payne averaged 2.5 points and 2.4 rebounds per game, playing in 34 games. During that year he was diagnosed with permanent reduced lung capacity, an ailment which affects his stamina.
In his sophomore season, he led the team in blocks (39) and finished seventh in the Big 10. In 37 games (36 starts), he averaged 7.0 points and 4.2 rebounds per game. He was an Academic All-Big Ten selection.
As a junior, Payne led the Big Ten in free-throw percentage (.848) and blocked a total of 46 shots, good for sixth all-time for a Michigan State player. In 36 games (24 starts), he averaged 10.5 points and 7.6 rebounds in 25.6 minutes per game. Payne was named to the Second Team All Big Ten, along with Michigan State teammates Keith Appling and Gary Harris.
Coming into his senior year, Payne was on the preseason Naismith and Wooden Award watchlists. CBS Sports selected him to the preseason Third Team All-America. He was named to the Midseason Wooden Award Top 25 watchlist. Payne was twice named Big Ten Player of the Week. He missed
seven games due to suffering an ankle injury. At the conclusion of the regular season Payne was named Second Team All-Big Ten.
Friendship with Lacey Holsworth
During the 2013–14 college basketball season, Payne's friendship with Lacey Holsworth, an 8-year-old cancer patient, gained national media attention. Their friendship started when Payne met Holsworth during a team-sponsored hospital visit in 2011 and the two began to text and talk frequently afterward. Holsworth, who battled with a nerve cancer known as neuroblastoma, accompanied Payne at center court on Senior Night and helped him cut down the nets after 2013-14 Michigan State Spartans men's basketball team won the Big Ten Men's Basketball Tournament. Holsworth, also known as "Princess Lacey", died from her cancer on April 8, 2014.
Professional career
Atlanta Hawks (2014–2015)
On June 26, 2014, Payne was selected with the 15th overall pick in the 2014 NBA draft by the Atlanta Hawks. On July 25, he signed his rookie scale contract with the Hawks after averaging 12.5 points and 7.0 rebounds during the 2014 NBA Summer League. After managing five preseason games for the Hawks, he was ruled out for the start of the regular season with plantar fasciitis in his left foot. He subsequently missed the first ten games of the season with the injury, and upon his return, he was assigned to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the NBA Development League on November 20. He was recalled by the Hawks on November 23, reassigned on November 28, and recalled again on December 6.
With the maximum allowance of four NBA players already being on assignment to the Mad Ants, the flexible assignment rule was used on December 9 so the Hawks could assign Payne to the Austin Spurs, the San Antonio Spurs' one-to-one D-League affiliate. On December 22, he was recalled by the Hawks, going on to make his long-awaited NBA debut four days later against the Milwaukee Bucks. He recorded 2 points and 3 rebounds in 13 minutes of action as the Hawks lost 107–77. On December 30, the flexible assignment rule was again used to assign Payne to Austin. He was recalled again on January 12, 2015.
Minnesota Timberwolves (2015–2017)
On February 10, 2015, Payne was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for a protected future first-round pick. On March 9, 2015, while starting in place of Kevin Garnett, he had a season-best game with 16 points, and 15 rebounds in an 89–76 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.
On October 21, 2015, the Timberwolves exercised their third-year team option on Payne's rookie scale contract, extending the contract through the 2016–17 season. On January 25, 2016, using the flexible assignment rule, he was assigned to the Erie BayHawks, the D-League affiliate of the Orlando Magic. He was recalled by the Timberwolves on February 1.
On February 7, 2017, Payne was ruled out indefinitely with a blood condition, having been treated for a condition of low platelet count. He returned to action in late March.
Orlando Magic (2017–2018)
On August 21, 2017, Payne signed a two-way contract with the Orlando Magic. Under the stipulations of the deal, he spent the majority of the 2017–18 season with Orlando's NBA G League affiliate, the Lakeland Magic. On January 26, 2018, he was waived by Orlando after his name surfaced in an alleged sexual assault dating back to his freshman year in college. After an investigation, no charges were filed.
Panathinaikos (2018)
On February 5, 2018, Payne signed with the Greek club Panathinaikos for the remainder of the 2017–18 season. His best game yet was against Spanish club Valencia recording 12 points and grabbing 8 rebounds in 17 minutes. In the last game of the EuroLeague regular season, against Olimpia Milano, he started for the first time. He finished the regular season averaging 3.5 points and 4 rebounds a game in a total of eight matches played.
Nanjing Tongxi Monkey King (2018-2019)

On February 17, 2019, Payne helped Panathinaikos BC to win the Greek Basketball Cup title against PAOK BC (79-73). The final held in Heraklion, Sports Indoor Arena, Crete. Payne's second stint with the Greek club proved to be briefer than his first, as he was released on March 13, 2019.
