More on this storyline:

Deandre Ayton will be a restricted free agent this offseason after the Phoenix Suns were unable to sign him to an extension. “Going into this season, Deandre Ayton did not feel valued by this Phoenix organization,” said Adrian Wojnarowski on Monday. “They were not able to come to an agreement on a rookie extension. He saw many of the top players of his class get extensions. He wanted a max deal. He would not move off that. “So now he moves towards restricted free agency this summer where now he’ll have some more options. But ultimately Phoenix can still match an offer out there and keep him if he signs an offer sheet with another team. ” -via RealGM / May 17, 2022:

Deandre Ayton is going to get a max contract in the marketplace somewhere. Phoenix really has to look at the allocation financially of how they want to distribute salaries. “The relationship with Monty Williams had been one of the real benefits. I think their ability to work together and build a relationship. It will be interesting how that season ended impacts this. It will really be one of the stories of this offseason because there are a lot of teams figuring out how to acquire: [Ayton]. ” -via RealGM / May 17, 2022:

Gerald Bourguet: Monty Williams on whether DA is a part of the Suns’ long-term plans: “Deandre’s situation is something we’ll deal with this summer. I do not want to say anything in regards to that. James and I are going to have conversations about the team in general. ” -via: Twitter @GeraldBourguet: / May 16, 2022:
