Phoenix #Suns have extended qualifying offer to Jock Landale to make him a restricted free agent, a source informs @azcentral.
Landale averaged 6.6 points, 4.1 rebounds in 1st year in Phoenix last season.

Aunque Frank Vogel y @Suns insistan que quieren retener a DeAndre Ayton, hoy Marc dice que por poco lo traspasan a @SomosMavs a cambio de Tim Hardaway, Jr. Richaun Holmes y otros activos. Fue cuando DAL quiso incluir a JaVale McGee que se trancó el canje durante el Draft. PM

According to @TheSteinLine’s latest, the Suns explored trading Deandre Ayton to the Mavs for Tim Hardaway Jr., JaVale McGee and the newly acquired Richaun Holmes on draft night, but Phoenix didn’t want McGee included:…10:41 AM

If the Mavs truly could have had Ayton by removing McGee from an offer … unless there’s a very significant hard cap or apron or something implication that changes the entire roster building approach, that begins to erode that hope I just tweeted about moments ago. – 10:19 AM

Good morning.
Got a question. Say you’re the #Suns GM.
Would you keep or move Deandre Ayton? PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
If the Suns keep Deandre Ayton, the only way they can add external help is on veteran minimum deals. The people enjoyed this number last time, so for @PHNX_Suns, let’s dive into 40 potential free agency targets: AM

More on this storyline

Sources with knowledge of the Phoenix/Dallas trade discussions said a resumption of the Ayton talks could not be ruled out. Trading for Ayton would be a pricey gamble for Dallas, given the years and millions left on the inconsistent big man’s deal, but it’s a gamble that the Mavericks would ultimately be willing to take given their need for a center and the relatively low cost to acquire the player chosen two picks ahead of Luka Dončić at No. 1 overall in 2018. -via / June 27, 2023
The Phoenix Suns engaged in advanced discussions to trade former No. 1 overall pick Deandre Ayton to the Dallas Mavericks last week during the NBA Draft before the talks stalled, league sources say. The proposed deal, sources tell The Stein Line, would have sent Ayton to Dallas for Tim Hardaway Jr., Richaun Holmes and JaVale McGee — but the Suns balked at McGee’s inclusion. -via / June 27, 2023
Evan Sidery: The Suns are viewed around the league as the premier destination for ring-chasing veterans this offseason, per @Gambo987 ( “There’s a concern from other teams that everybody is going to go to Phoenix before anywhere else, because of playing time. Phoenix will only be able to fill out the majority of their roster with veteran’s minimum contracts due to the combined salaries of Devin Booker, Kevin Durant, Bradley Beal, and Deandre Ayton. -via Twitter @esidery / June 26, 2023
