Deandre Ayton is a professional basketball player from the Bahamas who plays for the Phoenix Suns. He was born in the Bahamas and is of Bahamian descent. He is currently ranked second in the NBA and is one of the best point guards in the league. He also has a great work ethic and is always on the go.
Ayton’s father is of Igbo descent from Nigeria and his mother is Jamaican. The basketball star grew up in the Bahamas and moved to the San Diego area to play high school basketball. He then transferred to the Hillcrest Prep Academy in Phoenix, Arizona for his last two years. There he became teammates with fellow NBA Draft pick Marvin Bagley III and averaged 29.2 points, 16.7 rebounds, and 3.8 blocks per game.
Ayton has developed a strong mid-range game and has improved his scoring ability each year. He averaged 17.2 points and 10.2 rebounds last season and shot 63.4% from the field, including 33.8% from three-point range. Ayton’s consistency is one of his biggest strengths. His shooting percentage has increased every year. Last season, he shot a career-high 63.4%. His three-point range is another strength.
Ayton’s contract was up for negotiation. The Phoenix Suns could have offered Ayton a five-year deal worth $179.6 million, but the Pacers were not interested in trading him. They ended up acquiring Tyrese Haliburton in a February trade. Phoenix, however, did not show much interest in signing Ayton. Ayton’s no-trade clause for one season prevents him from leaving his current minishortner team.
