Devin Booker recently stated that he wants to be a part of a superteam and that he wants that superteam to come to him at the Phoenix Suns. So how can that be pulled off?
The Phoenix Suns are far from deserving the term “superteam,” and are in fact – for the fourth consecutive year – well on their way to earning the designation as an absolute “bottom-feeder” in the NBA.
All of this losing (236 losses in the last three seasons – and counting) has made fans wary that Devin Booker might actually jump ship and demand a trade from Phoenix blowing up the tenuous foundation that the team has been build upon so far.
Losing Booker would undoubtedly set the franchise back many years ripping away the only centerpiece the roster currently has, and all but cause the fanbase to abandon the franchise with little hope that while under Robert Sarver it could ever be rebuilt.
But now Devin Booker has stated that he wants to build a superteam and that he wants that team to come to him in Phoenix.
While this is the loftiest of lofty goals, the statement alone is one that might actually be that very sign that fans have so desperately been searching for, evidence that Booker has no intention of leaving and in truth does feel a loyalty to Phoenix so much so that he would prefer not to stay.
But how can such a superteam be created when the franchise has been suffering through such a long stretch of pathetic losing that – at least from a fan’s perspective – has tarnished the brand so much so that it appears nobody wants to actually come here (and in the cases of Joe Johnson, Goran Dragic, Isaiah Thomas, Eric Bledsoe, and Markieff Morris, some players who are already here don’t want to stay)?
How can management make good on Devin Booker’s desire and once again return the Phoenix Suns to one of the top perches occupied only by those blue chip franchise’s that the franchise was once a part of?
And if it actually is possible, to make good on this goal, how quickly can it be done?
This is the five-step plan for how the Phoenix Suns can realize Devin Booker’s dream – and how they can actually do so fairly quickly.
