Devin Booker and the Phoenix Suns are making progress to reach a five-year, maximum extension of $ 158 million once the weekend begins, says league sources ESPN. The Suns has submitted the offer to Booker on Tuesday in Los Angeles, it said.
Both sides plan to finalize the agreement shortly after the moratorium is completed on Friday, League sources said.
Booker, 21, has quickly become the cornerstone of the Suns and the franchise hopes to take her out of the lottery and back to the NBA playoffs.
Booker averaged 24.9 points and 22.1 points in his second and third NBA seasons. He was GM Ryan McDonough's most decorated draft pick in Phoenix, a freshman from Kentucky, who finished 13th in the 2015 NBA Draft.
Phoenix surrounded Booker with three lottery picks in its last two designs, including this year's No. 1 overall selection, Deandre Ayton, Pick No. 10 Mikal Bridges and 2017 No. 4 pick Josh Jackson.
