NBA fans have started to speculate about the future of Devin Booker in the league after the Phoenix Suns shooting guard sold his house in Arizona for $3.45 million, according to The Los Angeles Times. Booker bought the house in 2017, a year before signing a massive $158 million contract with the Suns.
However, the NBA community thinks this selling is Booker’s message to the Suns, telling them he’s out of Arizona. Fans flooded Twitter with every possible theory about where Booker is going, and the biggest ‘candidates’ to acquire his services appear to be the Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat and the Minnesota Timberwolves.

If Booker goes to Minnesota, then the big 3 of KAT, D’angelo, and Booker would be tough
But if Simmons joins the mix somehow when Doc trades him that’d be even more insane 🤔

Oh yea green is definitely convincing him to leave the suns 🤣

Of course, this doesn’t necessarily mean Booker is for sure leaving, but it’s a start and we know NBA fans like to speculate about the future of the stars. Perhaps Booker is trying to buy a bigger house in Arizona. This season he was absolutely great, taking his team to compete in the West, especially in the bubble, going 8-0 in Orlando, being one game away from the play-in game for a spot in the postseason.
The Suns have something good in their hands and Booker has shown his desire to continue with the team. Now that he knows they can actually compete, his will to stay may be bigger, but this is the NBA and anything can happen.
