“I’ve been treated right from the day I was drafted, even when I was a rookie and didn’t play much,” Booker told azcentral sports. “The city of Phoenix took me in with open arms and made me a part of their family. I’ve learned the history and traditions of the team. I know how much the city cares about the franchise and that means a lot to me, playing somewhere where people actually care about the franchise. I love it here, I bought a house here and I intend to be here for a long time.  – via Arizona Republic
Scott Bordow: Can confirm that Devin Booker was upset with the Suns, not for the release of Tyler Ulis but that Suns didn’t let him know. But, don’t expect this to impact Booker’s desire to stay in Phoenix long term – via sbordow
