Suns looking to give Devin Booker more time at point guard

Devin Booker

Devin Booker could be going from wearing No. 1 to playing the 1 as well.

During a conference call with the media Thursday, Phoenix Suns coach Monty Williams said that he wanted to explore using the All-Star shooting guard at the point guard position more often. Williams added that he had 10 to 12 minutes per game in mind, per Kellan Olson of 98.7 Arizona Sports.

The 23-year-old Booker, who is averaging 26.1 points per game this season, has also proven to be a quality playmaker. He has put up 4.7 assists per game for his career and is up to 6.6 of them a night in 2019-20. Booker is among the league leaders in turnovers however, which suggests room for improvement.

The ex-Kentucky star did get limited run at the 1 last season, but with Phoenix adding some more versatile pieces like Ricky Rubio and Kelly Oubre, they may have the flexibility to make Point Book a more regular thing. Hey, perhaps positional rigidity is why Booker thinks his player is messed up on NBA 2K.
