Devin Booker signs $158 max contract extension with Suns
Devin Booker had a lot to be thankful for on Saturday.
Booker signed a five-year, $158 max contract extension with the Phoenix Suns. The extension will kick in after next year, which means he is set to be a member of the Suns for the next six years.
Booker tweeted about the extension and expressed gratitude.
I am humbled & honored to commit to the Suns organization long term. I loved calling Phoenix home the last 3 seasons as this team & community are special to me. Thank you to the Suns for drafting me and believing in me. I look forward to the future & pursuing a title as a Sun. pic.twitter.com/AHRaraPww6

Booker, who was the No. 13 overall pick in the 2015 draft, averaged 24.9 points per game last season. He has steadily improved every year in the league, and the Suns obviously see him as a franchise cornerstone.
The Suns have been adding talent over the past two seasons and will be a team to watch. In addition to Booker, they also have rookies Deandre Ayton and Mikal Bridges, and second-year players Josh Jackson and Marquese Chriss.
