Per wirtetap

Devin Booker cannot become a free agent until 2024 and is coming off a standout performance in the restart with the Phoenix Suns going 8-0, but his future with the franchise is reportedly in doubt.

"They have to worry about the Booker thing," said Ryen Russillo. "The worst kept secret in the league is Booker already wants out of there. If it's another bad season, I actually think that could get ugly."

Booker signed a five-year, $158 million extension with the Suns in 2018.


Apparently he also sold his home in Arizona last month. This could get interesting

I'd easily part with RJ (to begin the bidding) for Bookers services

Knicks don’t have the best package to get Booker even if he were available. Wolves will outbid us

Also Booker isn’t demanding out

Not to mention why would booker even want to leave an up and coming team like the suns to come here?

Apparently the owner is cheap and was considered so before the pandemic. If he's looking to cut salary to make up lost revenue because of the pandemic it's not going to be a good sign for the future of the Suns. They are going to be losing talent because of a tight budget and in the Western Conference you can't be cheap if you want to compete. That might be one of if not the main reason but that's just my pure speculation and means nothing.

Other than our Kentucky ties and maybe the trust factor there along with Dolans wallet there isn't much reason.

He probably wants to go to Minnesota to be with Towns and D-LO. That really makes the most sense, the timing of this coming out, with the Wolves having the top pick.

Yup. Checks all the boxes.

He probably wants to get out the West and be an instant mega star on a starving franchise.
Getting out the West is more important I believe.

Yes Minny should go all in for Booker.

Too bad for them they don’t have control over their 2021 first rounder. Will probably have to add 2 more first round picks on top of the #1 pick this year as well as 2 pick swaps starting in 2022. Throw in Jarrett Culver, Malik Beasley and Juan Hernangomez as well.

as much as booker is friends with those guys, he should go somewhere else. you can't have 3 stars who are all bad at defense and win much of anything.

the sequel is never as good as the original
