Devin Booker’s future in Phoenix in question

Devin Booker wanting out of Phoenix is the “worst kept secret” in the NBA, according to Ryen Russillo. Russillo was a guest on Bill Simmons’ podcast and said, “The worst kept secret in the league is Booker really wants out of there. And if it’s another bad season I actually think that could get ugly.”

The recent comment stirred up Suns fans in defense of Booker, who only two years ago signed a five-year, $158 million max contract extension. The local news site in Phoenix, AZCentral.com, wrote, “Devin Booker wants to leave Phoenix Suns report refuted as ‘100% not true’.”

Booker almost had the Suns in the playoffs after an insane 8-0 run in the Orlando bubble, so the franchise is in its best situation since Booker was drafted back in 2015. But there’s also Leon Rose and Worldwide Wes now making the moves in New York, in addition to the Knicks’ recent hire of Booker’s old coach, Kenny Payne from Kentucky. Booker, a superstar, wouldn’t be crazy to want to be a Knick under the new leadership in a city where his superstar marketability would flourish.

In the meantime, Booker will keep hanging out with Kendall Jenner while people outside his circle debate his future.

Rough life.

    If they had went to the bubble and laid an egg, I could understand. But I’m sure hopes are high in Phoenix after that outing and the fact most are young players probably helps him stay in Phoenix. They need to learn from Miami. Get a group of young players and throw in some veterans.
