Ben Anderson @goodsHoops
The PDX-t commerce looks like it is going to inevitably make Phoenix worse due to the overpay him or lose him state of affairs with Ayton.
However, Portland is the king of trades I like on face worth that by no means make them higher.
And, Detroit acquired unhealthy worth in return for Grant.

Extra on this storyline

However even earlier than Grant was moved to Portland, Suns officers had began messaging to rival groups and different exterior league personnel that Phoenix will not essentially balk at matching any supply sheet for Ayton, sources informed B/R. With no apparent sign-and-trade piece to ship again to the Suns, it is unclear whether or not Detroit may have an unencumbered pursuit of Ayton on the restricted free-agent market. -via Bleacher Report / June 23, 2022
