In just a few weeks, the free agent market will finally open its doors. It promises to be exciting, with some signatures that will obviously take place very quickly, and others that will take a little longer. A young star can rub her hands together, because interest is important to her. An exciting soap opera to follow, and possible twists.
Very soon, and soon after the draft, the market will quickly get carried away with the availability of free agents. Like every year, we are expecting trades, but also a lot of signatures. Among the most interesting soap operas to follow? That of Zach LaVine, who could technically leave the Bulls to go grab a big contract. Nevertheless, the suspense may already be over, since we know his future team.
We reassure you, other players will panic the market in the coming weeks, with a lot of uncertainty in the lot. For that, we must look more specifically on the side of Phoenix, since Deandre Ayton should not continue the adventure in Arizona. A real surprise for the number 1 in his draft, notably ahead of Luka Doncic. But the Suns themselves intend to take advantage of it.
Deandre Ayton on the start, the market panics
Since Ayton is a restricted free agent, the Suns have priority. If they don’t intend to give him a big contract to keep him, they can do so in order to trade him immediately, to a new destination. A simple sign-and-trade in the NBA, which should therefore see the light of day fairly quickly. Ayton is considered a future star, logical given his performance, the interest is just beginning.
Phoenix is increasingly expected to engage in serious sign-and-trade talks centered around DeAndre Ayton 👀

Phoenix engages in serious conversations for Deandre Ayton regarding a sign-and-trade.
Averaging 17.2 points and 10.2 rebounds at just 23 years old, Ayton is part of the league’s future. He probably hopes to find his place in a franchise capable of giving him importance, unlike the Suns. In the comments, Internet users are already tearing it up:
Capela and cp3 bout to reunite. And they get hunter that would be solid for them.

Capela (Hawks, editor’s note) and Chris Paul will be reunited. If they get Hunter back, it would be very solid for them.
Trade Ayton to @lakers Please! AD play a Power Forward not a center.

Trade Ayton to the Lakers please! AD is a power forward, not a pivot.
Deandre Ayton available? We imagine that the phone of the Suns must be actively ringing at the moment. An agreement should quickly be reached when the market opens, even if the player’s destination remains a total mystery at this moment. Whatever happens, it will be a great deal for the winning franchise.
