According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, so far, the Phoenix Suns haven’t shown an interest in negotiating a sign-and-trade on restricted free agent center Deandre Ayton with the Indiana Pacers, but the expectation remains that Phoenix will match the record-$133 million offer sheet once it’s signed. The Suns could trade Ayton as soon as Jan. 15 once the sheet is matched.

Ayton, 23, averaged 17.2 points and 10.2 rebounds this past season, while shooting 63.4 percent from the field and 74.6 percent from the foul line.
