The Trail Blazers acquired Ayton and Toumani Camara from the Suns two days ago in a three-team deal with the Bucks.

“They needed Dominayton, so I’m up in the building, man,” Ayton said. The video might be we weird to watch for Suns’ fans.

Ayton’s locker in the video has the No. 2 on it, signifying the center will likely change his jersey number from No. 22 with Portland.

“I feel like I just got drafted,” Ayton said laughing.

New beginnings lie ahead for the former Suns’ No. 1 overall pick, and we will see how it pans out for him with the Blazers.

“(I’m) super glad to be here, super honored,” Ayton said. “I can’t wait to get this thing started with you guys. Let’s get it.”
