Before the bubble games started in Disney World, everyone around the NBA already knew Booker is one of the best scorers in the NBA. The star guard has taken his scoring skills to another level in Orlando and has Phoenix at 4-0 in the NBA restart.
However, Draymond Green clearly doesn’t believe the Suns are going to have long-term success, so the Warriors forward thinks Devin Booker’s best bet is to force his way out of Phoenix and join a contender.
Booker has consistently said he wants to be the guy who turns the Suns organization around. Phoenix hasn’t been to the playoffs since 2010. As a friend, Green wants to see Booker showcase his skills on the brightest stage and not for a putrid franchise which has been a walking disaster since the Steve Nash era ended.
Booker entered the NBA in 2015. He has career averages of 22.3 points, 3.6 rebounds and 4.7 assists, but he has never played in the playoffs before and it’s not a guarantee that streak will end this season. Despite the Suns’ hot start in Orlando, they are still in 10th place in the Western Conference standings.
