Deandre Ayton Contract

When asked how he felt after signing a massive contract extension with the Phoenix Suns, Deandre Ayton’s response amused fans. The offseason for the Suns was chaotic, what with team owner Robert Sarver being suspended by the NBA for his racist and misogynistic behavior over the course of 18 years as owner and then announcing he was selling the team.

The fact that Ayton was benched for the decisive Game 7 defeat to the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Playoffs in May further increased his notoriety throughout the offseason.

Last summer, the Indiana Pacers made an attempt to sign him to a deal, but the Suns could have countered with an equal offer. This resulted in Ayton returning to Phoenix, where he was questioned about whether or not he has communicated with head coach Monty Williams since May of 2017.

“I haven’t spoken to him at all, since the game. Rather than just telling him, I can demonstrate to him. It’s not about how you feel doing it or what you bring to the table that matters, but rather how well you perform. All that can be said has been spoken.

When asked if he was content to be back with the Suns, Ayton gave a positive response. “Yeah, I’m alright,” Ayton answered with disappointment in his voice. As Ayton saw it, all that really matters is the work he put in, he said.

‘When I’m in between those lines, dude, I just work,’ Ayton said. To paraphrase, “I’m not in this for me. Because I have a logo to represent and a name to live up to, I can’t just come in here and do my job.

Even though the Suns will pay Ayton $133 million over the next four years, he appears to be dissatisfied with the team. Perhaps Monty Williams should have a chat with his unhappy celebrity, but it’s hard to feel sorry for someone who made millions upon millions.

Numerous NBA all-stars have been traded after becoming dissatisfied with their current squad. It’s possible this is the first time a player has expressed dissatisfaction with his team the season after accepting a contract deal.
