Devin Booker dropped off against the Rockets on Friday, scoring 10 points on 3-of-11 shooting with two triples, one board, one assist and one steal in 31 minutes.
The concern with Booker is that he has needed so many minutes and touches to accumulate his early late-round value over the past few weeks. Brandon Knight (groin) hasn’t even returned yet, and though we believe the Suns are going to stick with him in a primary role for the rest of the year there are some red flags. Don’t give up on him yet, but be realistic as we see how things play out. It doesn’t help that Ronnie Price (23 minutes, zero points, one steal, one block, three assists) and his veteran whatever you want to call it may get tapped to spell the young backcourt.
