Grayson Allen secures his spot in Phoenix with a substantial four-year, $70 million contract extension, as confirmed by his agents to ESPN. Heading towards unrestricted free agency, Allen’s standout performance this season attracted significant interest from other teams.

His career-high average of 13.5 points per game during the regular season, coupled with his remarkable 46.1% shooting from beyond the arc, solidified his importance to the Suns. Allen’s sharpshooting prowess became instrumental for Phoenix, particularly in games where Bradley Beal’s absence left a void.

While retaining Allen boosts the Suns’ current competitiveness, it brings financial complexities. Already operating as a luxury-tax team with notable contracts for Kevin Durant, Devin Booker, and Beal, Phoenix faces further financial strain.

Mat Ishbia, the new owner, has demonstrated a willingness to invest despite the looming tax penalties. However, the Suns must justify this significant expenditure with on-court success.
