Phoenix Suns Rumors
Booker had 10 points, two rebounds and an assist at the time of the injury. Phoenix went on to win 104-96. Suns coach Monty Williams said after the game that he didn’t yet have an update on Booker. Booker will be evaluated by the Suns’ medical staff on Wednesday. Booker suffered a left hamstring strain last January and missed four games.
Kellan Olson: Steve Kerr said losing in the Finals is devastating and loved that Devin Booker was still ready to fly halfway across the world and compete for Team USA in Tokyo right after going through that. Said Booker was a huge part of the team with his versatility.
The New York-based law firm leading the NBA’s investigation into the workplace culture of the Phoenix Suns under owner Robert Sarver has begun scheduling and conducting in-person interviews of current and former team employees, but it’s unclear whether those who have signed non-disclosure agreements will be able to speak freely to investigators.
One former Suns employee told ESPN they remain uncertain about whether they can speak freely about their experiences in Phoenix, saying they would be “happy to speak” with the investigators if they are assured they will not face legal consequences. The employee is hopeful that “the NBA would have my back.”
A former Suns human resources employee previously told ESPN that the organization would often make a settlement agreement when an employee threatened to sue or raised issues that could lead to legal action. It’s unclear how many former employees have signed non-disclosure agreements, but team sources said the number of former employees who signed NDAs, along with the total amount spent on severance packages, is of interest to minority members of the Suns ownership group.
