If Sarver thinks Ayton is more Shai (maxing out at $172) than Michael Porter (who with escalators can max up to the $207), I can completely understand why Ayton is insulted and won't take less.
Even worse, why WOULDN'T you reward him with the supermax if he hits all NBA? All NBA players deserve it!
Would you seriously suggest Ayton take less than MPJ? At this point, it looks like Sarver is trying to use RFA to leverage Ayton into signing a max but not supermax deal, and Ayton is telling him to pound sand.
Great look for Sarver, and great move with a 23 year old who could be with your team for another 10 years!
The Suns would sign him to the MPJ deal in a nanosecond:
