Deandre Ayton Expects To Sign Extension With Suns 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Sep 28, 2021 3:47 pm

Deandre Ayton is optimistic he will sign a contract extension with the Phoenix Suns.


Ayton is eligible for the five-year, $172 million rookie max extension.


"Honestly, I'm expecting something to get done so that we as a team can finish what we started, which is bring a championship to Phoenix," Ayton said Monday to The Republic during Suns media day. "Period. Literally. That's all it is." 


Ayton emerged as one of the NBA's best young centers during the 20-21 season.

Yikes. I know how the league is trending with big contracts; Ayton is someone I would not max out. He was not playable in certain matchups and that's a tough pill to pay a max for... lets see if Sarver pays up.

Phoenix has no choice. They'll max him out for the same reason they brought CP3 back.
