Phoenix Suns agent says Pacers' offer sheet for Deandre Ayton is the same for 4 years, $133 million.

On Thursday night, Deandre Ayton's agents, Bill Duffy and Nima Namakian, informed ESPN that the Phoenix Suns had matched the Indiana Pacers' four-year, $133 million offer sheet.

Despite having until 11:59 p.m. eastern time on Saturday, the Pacers matched Ayton's offer sheet immediately and ended their pursuit.

Before Ayton signed the offer sheet, Phoenix showed no interest in negotiating a sign-and-trade agreement, signaling they would match it once it was presented

The Suns would have lost the No. 1 pick in the 2018 NBA draft if they failed to match Ayton's offer.

For a full year, Ayton cannot be traded without his consent until Jan. 15. Thus, Ayton will not be included in any offseason deal involving Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant.

In 2016, Dallas Mavericks signed Harrison Barnes for four years and $94.4 million, the same summer Durant was signed by Barnes' former team, the Golden State Warriors.

After the game, Suns coach Monty Williams said, "It's an internal matter." Ayton declined to speak with reporters.
