According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Phoenix Suns restricted free agent center Deandre Ayton has signed the four-year, $133 million offer sheet with the Indiana Pacers, and now the Suns are on the clock to match it.

The expectation remains that the Suns will do so and retain Deandre Ayton, but they could take the process through Saturday night.

Ayton, 23, averaged 17.2 points and 10.2 rebounds this past season, while shooting 63.4 percent from the field and 74.6 percent from the foul line.
