The Suns could opt to rest Booker throughout the entire preseason as well, having etched his place in the starting lineup and as the Suns' franchise player, after signing a five-year, $158 million rookie extension earlier this summer. He became the fourth-youngest player in National Basketball Association history to score 3,000 points, behind LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony. He averaged a career-high 24.9 points and shot 38.3 percent from 3-point range in 54 games last season.
