Toronto was close to acquiring Deandre Ayton from Phoenix in a sign and trade last summer, according to a source. Perhaps there’s a deal to be made with the Suns, who are said to be one of Anunoby’s many suitors. Pacers centre Myles Turner – who just signed an extension but is still eligible to be traded – would also check off a few boxes as a shot-blocking, floor-spacing big man.

Two quick fouls for JC. He got called for an offensive foul and then fouled Ayton with Clint guarding Chris Paul. That’s 3 for JC. – 11:35 PM

Same idea tonight for the Suns in terms of running the offense through Bridges and Ayton. Tonight hasn’t been pretty but that’s part of the process. It’s important that they are doing it consistently. – 10:19 PM

More on this storyline

Tim MacMahon on Deandre Ayton: He’s a name that I’ve heard around the Mavericks. And again, I think that would have to be a later than right now type of situation. -via Spotify / January 31, 2023
Gerald Bourguet: “I caught it from my baby boy. Sorry to throw you under the bus, junior.” Deandre Ayton said when he was trying to get back on the court and find his breath, he felt like he was in Denver. Was also dealing with headaches, but was thankful it wasn’t COVID or the flu: -via Twitter @GeraldBourguet / January 26, 2023
Kellan Olson: Deandre Ayton apologized for throwing his son under the bus but that’s who he thinks he got sick from. Dealt with headaches and difficulty catching his breath. Stayed away from the team as he kept testing negative. Feels good about how he got his conditioning back. -via Twitter @KellanOlson / January 26, 2023
