Deandre Ayton has signed a four-year, $133 million maximum offer sheet with the Indiana Pacers.
Rumors have been swirling for quite some time now surrounding Ayton and the Suns free agency decisions.
The offer sheet, which is the largest in NBA history, gives the Suns 48 hours to match if they want to retain Ayton.
Phoenix seems to not view the 23-year-old as a maximum player, and with rumors swirling around Kevin Durant possibly heading to the team makes it unclear which direction they’ll go.
If the Pacers are able to officially sign for Ayton, it will likely push Myles Turner on his way out of Indiana.
Ayton averaged 17.2 points on 64% shooting and 10.2 rebounds across 58 games played last season in Phoenix.
The Phoenix Suns matched Ayton’s offer sheet, keeping him with the team for the next four seasons.
