The Phoenix Suns and All-NBA guard Devin Booker are finalizing a four-year, $214 million supermax contract extension that he’s set to sign as soon as next week, sources tell <a href="https://twitter.com/TheAthletic?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@TheAthletic</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/Stadium?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@Stadium</a>. <br><br>Booker will also be the cover athlete for NBA 2K23, per sources.

Phoenix selected Booker with the 13th overall pick in the 2015 draft, and he has been a staple in the lineup ever since. During his 2015-16 rookie season, he averaged 13.8 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game.

The Kentucky product elevated his game over the next three seasons and finally broke through with his first All-Star selection in 2019-20 when he averaged 26.6 points, 4.2 rebounds and 6.5 assists per game.

Since then, Booker has been an All-Star in each of the last two seasons and had a career year during the 2021-22 campaign, averaging a career-high 26.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game in addition to 4.8 assists.

That resulted in him being selected to the All-NBA First Team alongside Jayson Tatum, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Nikola Jokic and Luka Doncic.

With Booker locked up, the Suns can shift their focus to putting some pieces around him and point guard Chris Paul to make the franchise a title contender, with Kevin Durant assuredly at the top of the franchise's wishlist following Thursday's trade demand.
