Report: Big-name team could emerge as trade destination for former Kentucky star Devin Booker
Certain names often come up when discussing star NBA players who could be traded this offseason. Portland’s Damian Lillard, Minnesota’s Karl-Anthony Towns and Phoenix’s Devin Booker are among those names.
Booker, a former Kentucky star, has been a talented scorer for the Suns since being drafted with the No. 13 overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.
But, according to Marc Berman of the New York Post, if the Suns do decide to move Booker this offseason, the New York Knicks could make an offer:
However, since Leon Rose was hired as president, the player to watch out for most is Suns combo guard Devin Booker, according to league sources. If Rose hires Tom Thibodeau, Towns — a former Rose client — no longer makes sense because of their history.
This season, Booker averaged 26.1 points, 6.6 assists and 4.2 rebounds per game. He earned a spot as an All-Star. The Suns currently have an overall record of 26-39.
