Well, there won’t be too many rainbows though!
Coming into the season, I thought it would be really hard for Devin Booker to do much this year. Then both Suns combo guards go down, and Booker took off, playing some really solid ball in his first full month as the starting 2, scoring 17 PPG on 45% from the field. But February was unkind, as the grind caught up to him and the FG% fell to 33.6% and the scoring down to 13.5. He has been able to maintain a great FT volume though even in cold stretches, so he doesn’t completely turn into a dirty pirate Booker. Last night against the Heat he found his stroke again, breaking out of his ice cold slump and hitting 11-21 from the field (3-7 3PTM), along with 9-9 freebies, for 34/3/4. LeVar Burton ain’t got nothin’ on me! I could see a lot of owners dumping him in this cold stretch, so it might be worth double-checking on his availability in shallowers. Long-term, it kinda sounds like the Suns have soured on Brandon Knight a little, so I could see them moving his contract this offseason, especially with caps expanding and teams more able to adsorb the $. If that happens, I could see the Suns starting Booker but making him overrated on draft day. I like the kid’s game for how raw he came into the league, but the AST have been sporadic at best and he doesn’t get steals. If not for a little FT volume he’d be a pretty clear-cut ThrAGNOF. Don’t overpay! And let’s get my boyfriend Knight a better job… Here’s what else went down last night in fantasy hoops action:Please, blog, may I have some more?
