Devin Booker wants to prove he is an All-NBA player when the season restarts in Orlando, according to the head coach of the Phoenix Suns, Monty Williams.

Before the NBA suspension, Booker averaged 26.1 points, 4.2 rebounds and 6.6 assists per game for the Suns.

“I think Book is probably chomping at the bit to be able to play on national TV. People know who he is, but he’s going to get a chance to really imprint who he is on a big stage where basketball is going to be front and center all around the world.

That is something that really excites him and all of our guys. He made the All-Star team and now I’m sure he wants to go out there and show everybody that he’s All-NBA,” Williams said in a recent interview with Marc Spears of The Undefeated.
