"We don't really have a lot to say about it," Payne told cbc.ca.

"Look I don't think it's a good policy to talk about deals that are in progress.

"It can't do anything to help the deal. And it also can make you look pretty dumb if the deal doesn't happen.

"We don't talk about offers we've made and we definitely don't talk publicly about players who are under contract to another team. To me, it's a form of tampering. And even though it's done frequently in the rest of the world, I don't think it's appropriate."
