Deandre Ayton meets with Suns owner amid contract feud

DeAndre Ayton and Suns owner Robert Sarver met this week on an ugly contract feud - to get a drink together in a fancy spot in Arizona ... TMZ Sports found out. We received photos of the two of them at the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort on Monday ... and witnesses tell us the boys were apparently in talks about a new deal for Ayton.

Let's say it's a tie with three minutes left.
#Suns, Chris Paul, Devin Booker, Mikal Bridges, Jae Crowder and Deandre Ayton got the game out.
#Lakers got Rajon Rondo, Russell Westbrook, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Anthony Davis to finish the game.
Who wins and why? - 11:25 pm

Starter in the second half:
Cameron Payne
Landry Shamet
Abdel Nader
Cam Johnson
JaVale McGee.
It's safe to say that the starters are done. Booker played 18 minutes, Bridges 17, Ayton 15 and Crowder 14.
Paul didn't play, of course. #Blazers took the lead as #Suns rose from 62-45 at the beginning of 3rd place. - 6:21 p.m.
@KellanOlson
Payne is the only starter out there when we start the second half. Usually the backup PG so that it is out there with the reserves. That's it for Booker, Bridges, Crowder, and Ayton. - 6:19 p.m.

Ayton with the sweater. This 15-footer has always been in his game. Can see more this year, especially on a dribble.
Saw him working on it after training. #Suns to 44-31 as Ayton has six and Booker with 14 on 5-of-9 FGAS after a 2-of-5 start. - 5:55 pm

Monty said everyone was available before the game when we spoke to him. I would guess that means Chris Paul is resting. - 4:29 pm

“I love Phoenix, but I'm really disappointed that we haven't made a deal yet. We were two wins away from winning a championship and I honestly want to be really respected, just as my colleagues are respected by their teams. ”Deandre Ayton #Suns bit.ly/3iYDlU6 pic.twitter.com/jdLiWDZ34z - 10 : 15 AM
