Devin Booker
SG/SF, 6’6, 206lbs, 20 years old, 2 years of experience

Got good quickly. Booker was the main beneficiary of the team’s overall struggles in the sense that he was willing and encouraged to take a lot of shots, which resulted in a lot of points, albeit on a .531% true shooting percentage. As the season went along, he showed more and more of an ability to manipulate this role into making plays for others out of the pick-and-roll, becoming “the man” at the mere age of 20. There’s work to do, on his handles and his defence, on his three-point range, and sometimes on his shot selection. But Booker is an elite scorer, currently by volume, and soon to be by efficiency as well.

Player Plan: Two years of rookie scale salary remaining. Keep and ensure the financial picture accounts for might wind up being a big extension.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 16th November 2017
2017-11-16

Booker was a 20+ points per game scorer last year, but he is demonstrably a better player this year already. The turnovers are down, the assists up, the rebounds are considerably up, the scoring efficiency is improved, and even the scoring output itself is increased. Booker is better at selling his presence as a now-established scoring threat to be a decoy and a playmaker, all of which betters his value from a fantasy perspective. Booker has scored 42 or more fantasy points in three of his last four games, and in six of his last ten. He would cost more than this were it not for the occasional bad outing. If tonight is not one of those, he will once again be good value at this price.
