“I wasn’t aware of the situation and in my 7 years that I’ve been here, I haven’t noticed that but that doesn’t make me insensitive to the subject.” Devin Booker on alleged argument between Earl Watson and Robert Sarver and Sarver using N-Word in relation to Draymond Green. #Suns AM

Devin Booker when asked if he overheard Sarver say a racist word in a game against Green, as reported in the ESPN story. “No, I did not. I wasn’t aware of the situation. In my 7 years I’ve been here, I haven’t noticed that. But that doesn’t make me insensitive to the subject.” – 1:16 AM
Tim MacMahon @espn_macmahon
Chris Paul: “I think right now, like Book said, we’re not insensitive to everything that was said or whatnot, but we don’t know all the details. So the NBA will do its investigation, and in that time, all of us on our team will continue to play and do what we do.” – 1:14 AM

More on this storyline

“As someone who is the caretaker of a program, I find all these things that are being said serious in nature,” Williams said Thursday before the Suns’ 123-111 win over the Houston Rockets. “It takes courage to come out and express yourself. But at the same time, I’m aware there are two sides to this equation. … We still have to wait to see how clear the facts can appear.” -via ESPN / November 5, 2021
Williams is in his third year as coach of the team. He pointed out that all of the allegations in the story took place before he came to the franchise in 2019. “If any of that stuff happened while I was here, I wouldn’t be in this seat,” Williams said. “The league is doing an investigation, and we’ll know more obviously once that is settled.” -via ESPN / November 5, 2021
Williams said he had spoken with team captain and leader Chris Paul about the matter. “As far as Chris is concerned, I think he probably feels the same way. I can’t speak for him,” Williams said. -via ESPN / November 5, 2021
