Devin Booker is one of the few bright spots on the Phoenix Suns, who are currently in “rebuilding-mode” and sit at the bottom of the Western Conference. If the Suns were to trade him at the deadline, they need to figure out what assets will help speed up the team’s rebuild.
Booker is averaging 21.1 points per game, 2.8 rebounds per game, and 3.2 assists per game in 34.6 minutes per game for the Phoenix Suns. At the age of 20, his potential to get better and his current play are what make Booker a highly sought out talent for any team in the NBA. It would be foolish for the Suns to give him up unless they were either going to win now, or have a faster rebuilding process.
During this upcoming NBA Trade Deadline, the Phoenix Suns should look to either make a trade for an All-Star caliber player or trade for assets for a quick rebuild. Ideally, the Suns want to keep Devin Booker, but if there is an offer on the table that includes multiple or high first-round draft picks, an All-Star guard that could replace Booker, or young talent that have the potential to be better than Booker, they should look to trade him. In my opinion, the Phoenix Suns should not trade Devin Booker, but if they were given the right trade, then the Suns should think about dealing him away. With the deadline quickly approaching, these are the acceptable trades for Devin Booker that the Suns should take if given the opportunity.
