(CNN)Former NBA player Adreian Payne was shot and killed in Orlando, according to authorities in Florida.

Deputies with the Orange County Sheriff's Office responded to a shooting just after 1 a.m. Eastern Time on Monday, where they found Payne, 31, shot. The gunman, who was later identified by police as Lawrence Dority, stayed at the scene and was transported to Orange County Sheriff's Office headquarters where he was interviewed by homicide detectives.
    Payne, playing for Orlando Magic, in action during an NBA match against the Chicago Bulls at United Center in Chicago, Illinois, on December 20, 2017. Dority has been arrested on a warrant for First Degree Murder and transported to the Orange County Jail, according to the statement. It is unclear if he has an attorney on record at this time, and a motive for the shooting is not known.
      Payne was a standout playing four seasons at center for the Michigan State Spartans, where his team twice won the Big Ten Conference Championship. Read MoreHe was drafted in the first round of the 2014 NBA draft by the Atlanta Hawks and played four seasons in the NBA with the Hawks, the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Orlando Magic. He went on to play internationally, including in China, Greece, France, Turkey and Lithuania, according to a news release from Michigan State's men's basketball program.
        Payne of Lyon and Kevin Punter of Belgrade during the Euroleague match between ASVEL and Crvena Zvezda on January 10, 2020 in Villeurbanne, France."I'm in shock at the tragic news of Adreian Payne's death," Michigan State men's basketball coach Tom Izzo said in a statement. "Our prayers are with his family, teammates and loved ones," he said."Adreian was loved by his teammates and coaches, who respected his development as a player and a person. He came to Michigan State with a ton of raw talent and put in the work to reach his goal of becoming an NBA player. Izzo added that Payne would be remembered by Spartans fans for his "kind heart" and his friendship with Lacey Holsworth, an eight-year-old who had been stricken with neuroblastoma in 2012 before her passing in 2014.
          "Today is a difficult and sad day for the Spartan basketball family. Following graduation, Adreian regularly returned to East Lansing," Izzo added."In doing so, he developed and strengthened relationships with players from all eras. I've heard from many of those players today, each one experiencing heartbreak, and each one with their own fond memory of Adreian," he said.

          Rival Star Punished for Actions During Mavericks Game

          Getty Luka Doncic of the Dallas Mavericks and Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors.

          The Dallas Mavericks haven’t had the start to the season that they may have hoped for. So far this year, they are 10-11, which places them in 11th place in the Western Conference. However, they did win their most recent game over the Golden State Warriors.

          During the game, star forward Draymond Green made a comment to a Mavericks fan. After the contest, the NBA reviewed the incident and announced that Green would be fined $25,000.

          “Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green has been fined $25,000 for directing obscene language toward a fan, it was announced today by Joe Dumars, Executive Vice President, Head of Basketball Operations.

          “The incident occurred with 11:20 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Warriors’ 116-113 loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Nov. 29 at American Airlines Center,” the NBA revealed in their statement.

          In a video captured by fans on the sidelines, Green could be heard saying, “enjoy the f****** game, shut up” to a fan who was presumably talking trash while Spencer Dinwiddie was shooting free throws and Green was in the lane.

          Incident aside, the Mavericks were able to squeak out a 116-113 win over the Warriors. Unfortunately for them, they dropped their next game in an overtime contest against the Detroit Pistons, losing 131-125.

          Mavericks Star is ‘Getting Boring’

          Luka Doncic has been doing it all for the Mavericks this year. Christian Wood and Spencer Dinwiddie are both averaging upward of 16 points per game, but Doncic is the centerpiece of their offensive game, and without him, the team wouldn’t run the same.

          After their win over the Warriors, head coach Jason Kidd spoke about Doncic’s brilliance, joking that it’s “getting boring” and that he should try to “do it with his left hand.”

          “It’s getting boring,” Jason Kidd joked. “I mean, let’s see something different. Maybe [he can] do it with his left hand. I’m just joking. Look, he’s one of the best in the world, and that’s what he does. Some of us can take him for granted. The man is special.”

          The superstar has appeared in 20 of the Mavericks’ 21 games so far this season, playing 37.6 minutes per contest. He’s averaging 33.6 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 8.7 assists on 50.5% shooting from the field and 33.1% shooting from behind the three-point line.

          New Addition Aims to Help Doncic

          While Dallas’ depth has been solid this season, they don’t have many on-ball creators outside of Doncic and Dinwiddie. However, they just recently signed Kemba Walker, and the veteran point guard says that his goal is to be an “extra ballhandler.”

          “Just adding another guy who can create for others and myself,” Walker said in an interview with the Mavericks this week. “I think I can help in that aspect. Take a little pressure off. Luka doesn’t really need any pressure taken off him. The kid is special. But maybe helping with Spence (Dinwiddie), who has been killing it this year and some of the young guys. Just be that extra ballhandler.”

          With Walker on the roster, the Mavericks should have another player to run their offense through, and hopefully, he’ll be a great third-string guard behind Doncic and Dinwiddie.
