According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, the team potentially adding a player such as Booker, Ben Simmons, or Jrue Holiday is considered a long-shot, but Minnesota continues to eye their respective situations.
“The Wolves have been looking into Booker’s potential availability for months but have been given no indication that he is available, league sources said…There is a belief that Phoenix wants to see if the magic they discovered in Orlando can carry over to the start of this season, and it appears that they won’t have to wait much longer to find out if the union approves a plan to begin the season on Dec. 22.”
Booker is good friends with Wolves’ stars DeAngelo Russell and Karl-Anthony Towns, but signed a five-year, $158 million extension with Phoenix in July of 2018.
Booker may be an extreme long shot or pipe-dream at this point, but should the Suns revert back to their losing ways, Booker may force his way out of Phoenix.
The Suns will be looking to build on their impressive run in the bubble in Orlando this past season, a run that almost netted them a playoff berth.
