Now that he’s back at work, he’s ready to show everyone that his argument was valid and that the team made the right decision to bring him back. Ayton uploaded photos of himself signing the contract on his social media accounts, along with a motivational remark to inspire the Suns’ supporters. At first, there were lingering questions and suspicions that the Suns wouldn’t bring back Deandre Ayton.
Phoenix decided not to sign him because, in their opinion, Ayton hasn’t exactly lived up to the hype and was a huge disappointment in the 2022 playoffs. As a result, there were questions and suspicion over Ayton’s role in the Suns. Ayton is a free agent, say the sources. When he accepted Indiana’s offer of a $133 million offer sheet, the Suns were virtually compelled to match. After all, they could not risk losing the previous first-round pick for nothing, so they had to take this action. Ayton, though, is not upset with the Suns for their choice, which ultimately devalued him.
It is what it is.
In the end, he understands that the NBA is a business and that everyone is first concerned with their profit. The front office and executives will do all it takes to put the company in a successful position.
He claims to now understand that this is a business. He was also there with a greater desire to find out the outcome so that he could focus, move on, and only work on himself and his job. He merely carried on with business as usual.
He even counseled the participants in the interview to simply maintain professionalism and conduct themselves appropriately to prevent things from getting out of hand.
Given that everything that has occurred makes it dubious and that they appear to be selling him during the winter, it is uncertain. However, given that he agreed to a contract with a maximum term of four years, Ayton will likely remain in Phoenix for a considerable amount of time.
