Deandre Ayton of the Phoenix Suns is one of the most talented assets of the Phoenix Suns. Ayton was drafted back in the year 2018, and since then, he has been one of the biggest contributors to the team. Ayton was acquired in a three-team deal along with Damian Lillard.
This Thursday, Ayton and the Trail Blazers will be playing their second preseason game against the Suns. When asked about his thoughts on facing his former team, Deandre sounded pretty upset about it. Last season, Ayton was one of the biggest contributors to the Sun’s final ranking.
Ayton And The Lost Love
When questioned about what are his thoughts about the situation, Ayton responded with a heavy heart saying, “I have no thoughts. … I don’t want to talk about it.” In fact, another sports correspondent noted that Ayton unfollowed his former teammates, Devin Booker and Kevin Durant. Even though the duo still follows him. This came as a further shock for everyone as nobody realized that things would become so heavy and asinine.
Meanwhile, in another interview, the player looked absolutely confident that he would bring something very positive and winning to the table. But the Blazers coach has something different to say when discussed asked about Ayton’s role in the grand scheme of things.
According to coach Billups, Ayton was not acquired by the Blazers to be used on court all the time. Rather, Ayton is a more nuanced asset that will be used when needed on the court. And more to connect the old talents with new. Enhancing the overall team synergy.
