Locked On Suns Friday: Ryan Kelapire of AZ Desert Swarm joins the show to discuss Deandre Ayton

New, comments

Ryan, the managing editor over at SB Nation’s U of A site, stopped by to talk about Deandre Ayton.

On today’s show, AZ Desert Swarm’s Ryan Kelapire joins as we go further in-depth on Deandre Ayton. We broke down strengths and weaknesses of Ayton’s game alongside how he was to cover from a media point of view this past season.

How does Ayton compare to other lottery talent to come out of Tucson? No surprise, but Ryan believes Ayton far and away trumps the likes of Aaron Gordon and Lauri Markkanen.

Also, how about the U of A effect on ticket sales next season? With Suns majority owner Robert Sarver, who’s an alum, it could play a factor if their choice up top comes down to the little things.

We covered all of that and more, as Ayton seems destined to be the chosen Sun at No. 1.
