Devin Booker had nothing but praise for his Phoenix Suns’ teammate Mikal Bridges. Bridges was impressive for the Arizona franchise during the Suns’ scrimmages.

“He’s a player,” Booker said Thursday, per Arizona Sports. “You can’t put him in a box, you can’t give him one title. You can’t even just give him a 3-and-D title that people try to use for him.”

He’s hit 7 of 12 three-point attempts over three exhibition games, while he scored 27 points against the Toronto Raptors, one of the best defenses in the league.

Booker believes that Bridges could improve even more and become a steady factor for the Phoenix Suns.

“He’s growing every day, he’s evolving every day and he loves the game,” Booker said.
