Devin Booker, Phoenix Discussing MASSIVE Contract

2016 NBA All-Rookie First Team, 70-point game, future All-Star—21-year-old Devin Booker is a player every team in the league wishes to have and the Phoenix Suns are close to locking him up for the long haul.

Devin Booker and the Phoenix Suns are progressing toward finalizing a five-year, $158 million maximum contract extension as soon as the weekend, according to ESPN.

Booker has quickly become Pheonix’s franchise player after being selected No. 13 overall in the 2015 NBA Draft and is the team’s hope to lead them back into the NBA playoffs. Phoenix has built their team around Booker, with three lottery picks in the past two drafts, including No. 1 overall pick, center Deandre Ayton, No. 10 pick Mikal Bridges and 2017 No. 4 overall pick Josh Jackson.

Last season, in 2017-18, Booker averaged a career-best 24.9 points, 4.7 assists, and 4.5 rebounds per game in 54 games for the Phoenix Suns.

Booker would become the first member of the 2015 NBA Draft to sign. an extension.
