Deandre Ayton is disappointed the Phoenix Suns didn’t offer him his desired max contract extension prior to the start of the 2021-22 season, which is why there are talks whether the team plans to trade him or not.

Apparently, the Suns don’t view Ayton as a max contract player–which obviously didn’t make Ayton happy. While that is the case, however, it doesn’t mean the team doesn’t want to keep him.

According to Sean Deveney of, one NBA general manager told him that it doesn’t seem the Suns have plans to put Ayton on the trading block for now.
