Devin Booker to have input in Suns’ decisions moving forward
Devin Booker may just be the most powerful 21-year-old in the world.
Phoenix Suns GM Ryan McDonough told the media on Thursday that the third-year guard will have input in the team’s decisions going forward.
“With his emergence and importance to not only what we’re doing in the short term but hopefully in the next decade-plus, I think it’s important to make him a partner in the process,” said McDonough, per Scott Bordow of AZCentral.
“Kind of show him the blueprint and vision we have not only for the rest of this season, but for the summers of 2018, 2019, 2020, etc.,” McDonough added. “In terms of what he thinks are important characteristics for a head coach to have, what’s important to us as an organization and how we build over a number of years.”
Booker, who is averaging a team-high 24.6 points per game this season, looks like Phoenix’s undisputed franchise cornerstone, and it is no surprise that they are treating him as such, even at such a young age. He has already noted one major move that he would like for the team to make, and it sounds like he will factor heavily into their decision-making process from here on out.
