Suns shooting guard Devin Booker has quickly risen up the ranks as one of the best players in the NBA.

In just his third NBA season, Booker was ranked the No. 21 player in the entire association by Slam Magazine.

Booker has splashed into the NBA, finishing fourth in Rookie of the Year voting his first year, dropping 70 points in a game against the Boston Celtics in his second year and winning the Three-Point Contest with a record amount of points scored in his third year.

Now a proverbial “senior” in his fourth year, the sky is the limit.

Devin Booker is a certified bucket. Entering his fourth season alongside 2018 No. 1 overall pick Deandre Ayton, Book is primed for another big leap. See the shots that I took…

Booker is ranked as the No. 5 shooting guard on the list with the top 20 players set to be revealed closer to the start of the regular season.

Shooting guards that are ranked behind Booker include Bradley Beal of the Wizards, C.J. McCollum of the Blazers and Donovan Mitchell of the Jazz.

At No. 21 Booker has been the top reveal released by Slam so far. He comes in one spot ahead of Golden State Warriors power forward Draymond Green.
