“I’m here”, DeAndre Ayton said and when he asked if he’s happy in Phoenix he replied “I’m alright”. His replies and his body language both at Suns Media Day and 1st practise say it all. #RallyTheValley

“It’s cloudy right now, to tell you the truth. I don’t know what is in between the lines. We have to figure it out before the first jump ball. This is media day. We just have to lock in more. Just block out all the noise,” #Suns @Deandre Ayton to @andscape bit.ly/3LOoIQv5:17 PM

More on this storyline

Duane Rankin: “To be straight, I’m not going to talk about this anymore cause it just doesn’t make sense to keep talking about one guy after one game. We lost Game 7.” Monty Williams addressing him and Deandre Ayton haven’t not talked since Game 7 of #Suns-#Mavs series Phoenix lost, 123-90. -via Twitter @DuaneRankin / September 27, 2022
