Why the Phoenix Suns Extended Landry Shamet but Not Deandre Ayton

Buzzer beating alley-oop finishes and lockdown defense against the game’s best centers will get you a punched ticket to the NBA Finals, but not a rookie contract extension—at least according to the Phoenix Suns. Earlier today, the deadline to lock up Deandre Ayton and avoid an awkward “prove it” season, capsulated by restricted free agency, […] Why the Phoenix Suns Extended Landry Shamet but Not Deandre Ayton - Valley of the Suns - Valley of the Suns - A Phoenix Suns Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Landry Shamet signs 4 year extension with the Suns

Photo by Chris Elise/NBAE via It might not be the 2018 draftee you wanted to see extended today, but it is a solid signing. The long wait is over for the Phoenix Suns fan base and their player drafted in 2018. The bag has been filled and he is now locked up for 4 years in purple and orange. No. Not that 2018 draftee. Suns’ guard Landry Shamet received a rookie contract extension for four year, $43M on Monday. https://t.co/QYGgW8pMfp pic.twitter.com/9VatfsSOQx— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) October 18, 2021 Shamet was originally drafted by the Philadelphia...

Ayton got used by the Suns

Ayton got used by the Suns

Photo by Michael Gonzales/NBAE via He limited his game, became a defensive anchor, and all it got him was a kick in the pants. The Phoenix Suns and Deandre Ayton have failed to agree to a contract extension by the deadline. They agreed for four-year deals with their two other extension-eligible players, Mikal Bridges ($90 million) and Landry Shamet ($43 million), but declined to offer Ayton the maximum-level extension ($172+ million) that his representatives requested and was widely seen in NBA circles as a ‘given’. As much as I love Mikal Bridges, he was not...

Preseason Review: Landry Shamet fits like a glove

Preseason Review: Landry Shamet fits like a glove

Photo by Chris Elise/NBAE via What does Shamet’s preseason showing tell us about how he can fit on this squad and help Phoenix contend for the title? The 6-foot-4 backup shooting guard Landry Shamet has never been a focal part of the offense of the three teams he’s played on in his first three seasons in the NBA necessarily, but that track record may change with the Phoenix Suns. The Philadelphia 76ers drafted him 26th overall in the 2018 draft with hopes that he could provide some off-ball spacing, which he did well, including a win on Jan. 8, 2019 in which he...

Rapid Recap: Suns dominate Lakers again

Rapid Recap: Suns dominate Lakers again

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports The Suns took care of business against the Lakers for the second straight preseason game. The Suns and Lakers battled it out for the second straight preseason game, and for the second straight game, the Suns obliterated them. The final score was 123-94. There was no sign of Devin Booker (again) or LeBron James (again) in this contest, but outside of that, the majority of both of these teams’ rotation got some action. Simply put, Phoenix looked good. Really good. Landry Shamet got off to a hot start, scoring 8 points in the opening...

Notable takeaways from Suns Media Day

Notable takeaways from Suns Media Day

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports Media day has arrived! Here are some of the notable quotes and takeaways from the team today. The Phoenix Suns held their annual media day this afternoon, with each player outside of Devin Booker (COVID protocols) making an appearance. There seemed to be a few common themes from all of the players, the most notable one is how everyone “wanted to be here” whether they were returning or brand new. Most of the returning players also seemed thrilled about the additions of Landry Shamet and JaVale McGee. I will run down some of the more...
