Phoenix Suns Rumors
“I was talking to Deandre. I’m more excited for him. It’s a start of his legacy. His new career. My job is to make it special for him and not make it like my first three years. So turn it around. Let him be known as a winner. Let our whole organization turn around to a winning franchise.” – Devin Booker.
Deandre Ayton was unsure how to even respond to the team’s franchise player talking to him about that at his locker Tuesday. “He came out of nowhere, too,” the one-and-done 7-footer out of Arizona said before Wednesday night’s season opener against the Dallas Mavericks at Talking Stick Resort Arena. “I was coming into practice and we were both changing. He was happy for me and was like this is when your legacy starts. I’m like, I don’t even know how to react. I was like, ‘Thank you bro.’ Like legacy? That’s big.”
