Last Season – 42% FG 36% 3P 83% FT 22.1 Pts 3.4 Asts 3.2 Rebs in 35 Mins
ESPN Fantasy Projections – 21.7 Pts 3.9 Asts 3.5 Rebs in 35 Mins

A future superstar. Booker needs to make another jump forward this year either in his all-around game or his accuracy. I think he can do both. Expect shooting numbers along the lines of 45% FG 38% 3P 85% FT.

Reasonable Projection – 25.5 Pts 3.5 Asts 3.3 Rebs in 36 Mins
Goal – 27.1 Pts 5 Asts 4 Rebs
Middle Ground – 26.3 Pts 4.3 Asts 3.7 Rebs

Devin made quite a jump between his Rookie and Sophomore years. If he can do anything close to it, it will be scary for all opponents and he will make his first All Star Game.

Stretch – 47% FG 40% 3P 87% FT 30.4 Pts 5 Asts 4 Rebs

This concludes my projections. Go Suns!
