Suns have rejected the trade of Julius Randle for Ayton

According to Brian Lewis of the NY Post, the New York Knicks had an offer in place to send Julius Randle to the Suns in exchange for Ayton. The deal also reportedly included two first-round picks.

Why Phoenix declined the offer is unknown. Randle will earn $25.6 million over the next year. Her chord is slightly lower than Ayton’s. Also, production-wise, Randle proved better.
