Suns' Ayton to Sign Max Contract Offer Sheet with Pacers

Restricted free agent Deandre Ayton, the NBA's No. 1 overall draft pick in 2018, has agreed to a four-year, $133 million maximum contract with the Indiana Pacers, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. The Phoenix Suns have two days to match the deal and retain Ayton or lose him for nothing. The contract effectively removes Ayton, and likely Phoenix, from this summer's trade sweepstakes for Kevin Durant, as the 23-year-old cannot be dealt until Jan. 15 once he signs the offer sheet. Ayton can also veto any trade for a full season if the Suns match Indiana's offer. Durant listed the Suns as a preferred trade destination, league sources told Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes. It is unlikely Phoenix has enough to offer the Brooklyn Nets now - without including All-NBA guard Devin Booker, who is almost certainly off the table.
