Deandre Ayton is having no problem with the competition or
the schedule at the NBA level.

Ayton outplayed a fellow top rookie big man for the second time Josh Rosen

, keeping the Phoenix Suns undefeated in
preliminary play in Las Vegas.

Another full day of basketball Monday, highlighted by Ayton against Orlando’s
Mo Bamba in a matchup of unbeaten teams, was the third game in four days for the
20 teams in action at the NBA Summer League. The games are shorter than a
regular NBA game – 40 minutes instead of 48 – and there’s no travel, but it’s
still a lot of action in a short amount of time.

Some teams even gave players a rest day during the stretch of games, knowing
there will be more ahead. Every team is guaranteed five games, with the
possibility of playing as many as eight games in 12 days.

Ayton didn’t look like he needed a break after scoring 17 points and grabbing
13 rebounds in the Suns’ 71-53 victory over the Magic. The No. 1 pick said it
was his first victory over Bamba, the No. 6 pick, after he beat fellow high
school teammate and No. 2 selection Marvin Bagley III on Saturday.

”With all the excitement and all the fans coming out here, it just really
made me a lot more comfortable,” Ayton said in an interview on NBA TV. ”And I
just want to put on a show for them to be honest and just win as many games as I

There won’t be any more for Bagley, as the Sacramento Kings announced that an
MRI revealed a pelvic bone bruise. The Kings said Bagley would rest for a week
or two.

only five games Tuesday before teams are seeded for tournament play that begins

open their mandatory minicamp without Julio Jones, one of their most important

that Jones will not be present when the three-day minicamp opens on Tuesday.

Jones Authentic
Jakub Voracek Jersey
, under contract through 2020, apparently is
seeking a new deal as he has fallen behind other top NFL receivers in average

"We have been in contact with Julio and his representation," Dimitroff said
in a statement released by the team.

"We will not discuss those conversations publicly except to say we feel they
have been productive and constructive. We understand the concerns and thoughts
from their perspective. Although not ideal, Julio informed us today he would not
be attending minicamp.

"We have much respect for him and what he means to our team, our city and our

Jones' absence is a big surprise. Before Monday, coach Dan Quinn and others
had said they were confident Jones would attend the minicamp despite missing the
voluntary offseason program.

Jones, 29, still has three seasons remaining on his five-year, $71.3 million
deal with $47 million in guaranteed money. He is due to earn $10.5 million this
season, $12.5 million in 2019 and $11.4 million in 2020.

Jones' salary cap figure of $12.9 million for 2018 ranks seventh among NFL
receivers, well behind recent deals signed by Tampa Bay's Mike Evans ($18.252
million in 2018) and Cleveland's Jarvis Landry ($15.5 million).

Jones' holdout comes in a summer the Falcons made quarterback Matt Ryan the
NFL's highest-paid player. Ryan's new deal could average out to as much as $30
million annually over five seasons.

Jones' value to the team is unquestioned. He earned his fourth straight Pro
Bowl berth, and fifth overall, in 2017 ,
when he had 88 catches for 1,444 yards. It was his fourth straight season with
at least 80 receptions and 1,400 receiving yards.

Jones had only three touchdown catches last season as the Falcons' offense
failed to match the standards set in 2016, when Atlanta led the league in
scoring and advanced to the Super Bowl.

Jones' absence in the minicamp will leave more opportunity for another former
Alabama receiver, rookie Calvin Ridley, to have more work with Ryan. Ridley, a
first-round pick, is expected to earn a role behind Jones and Mohamed Sanu on
the depth chart.
