The Suns have parted ways with their head coach Monty Williams. The former NBA Coach of the Year is out of Phoenix.
Williams has coached the Suns since the 2019-2020 season and brought the Suns success they hadn’t seen in years. However, after a disappointing Finals loss and two straight early playoff exits, Williams has been relieved of his duties. He’ll be one of several coaches that will undoubtedly attract interest among teams looking for a head coach. As far as the Suns and Devin Booker are concerned, big changes seem to be on the horizon, with trade rumors floating around for Chris Paul and Deandre Ayton. Phoenix could look very different in the 2023-2024 season.
Devin Booker (rest) has been ruled out and will not play for the Phoenix Suns against the Los Angeles Clippers Sunday.
Booker will get the day off with the Suns already clinching the No. 4 seed in the Western Conference. Landry Shamet will likely start at shooting guard against the Clippers Sunday.
Devin Booker (rest) has been ruled out for the Suns' matchup against the Lakers on Friday.
The Suns' clinched the fourth seed on Thursday night in their win against the Denver Nuggets. With nothing to play for they are resting their starters for the playoffs. Expect Terrance Ross and Damion Lee to get extended playing time for the remainder of the season.
Devin Booker tallied 22 points (8-14 FG, 1-5 3PT, 5-5 FT), 10 assists, five rebounds and one steal in 37 minutes of Sunday's 128-118 win over the Thunder.
Booker took a back seat to Kevin Durant in terms of scoring on Sunday, as his 14 field-goal attempts were his lowest since Dec. 5 against the Mavericks. However, the shooting guard made up for some of that production by facilitating, leading the team in assists. It will be tough to predict who takes the reigns most nights for Phoenix in terms of scoring, but both Booker and KD should have no problems producing.
Devin Booker tallied 29 points (9-18 FG, 2-4 3PT, 9-9 FT), five assists, three rebounds and one block in 32 minutes of Saturday's 125-105 win over the 76ers.
Booker continued his elite scoring production on Saturday, as he is now averaging a whopping 33.8 points per game in March. It seems as though Kevin Durant is targeting a return sometime next week, which will obviously knock down Booker's upside. However, the shooting guard should see plenty of scoring opportunities regardless of who he shares the court with.
