Default Suns draft Devin Booker 13th overall

The Phoenix Suns tonight selected University of Kentucky guard Devin Booker with their first-round pick and the 13th overall in the 2015 NBA Draft.

Booker, widely considered to be the best three-point shooter in this year’s draft, earned Southeastern Conference (SEC) Sixth Man of the Year, Second Team All-SEC and All-SEC Freshman Team honors following his one season at Kentucky in 2014-15. The 6-6, 206-pound sharpshooter averaged 10.0 points for the Wildcats and displayed his fluid shooting stroke, connecting on 47.0 percent of his field goals, 41.1 percent of his three-pointers and 82.8 percent of his free throws.

A mature 18-year-old possessing a high basketball IQ, Booker helped the Wildcats to a 38-1 record this past season with the 38 wins tying for the most in NCAA history as Kentucky also won the SEC regular-season and tournament titles on its way to becoming the first undefeated team to reach the Final Four since UNLV in 1991. Booker ranked second on the Wildcats with 20 double-digit scoring games and led the conference by earning SEC Freshman of the Week honors on five occasions.

Very good young core that the Suns are having.

Knight, Warren, Len, Goodwin and now Booker.

I hope Suns get something out of Booker at the SG spot, and that Goodwin can develop into a Barbosa type of 6m.

The future can be bright, the Suns better stop doing dumb deals
