Suns’ Devin Booker, Chris Paul go early in NBA All-Star Draft
The Phoenix Suns’ pair of All-Stars have the respect of their peers.
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James and Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant picked their teams in the NBA’s All-Star Draft on Thursday, and when the reserves portion came up, Suns guards Devin Booker and Chris Paul didn’t last long.
Booker went third overall to Team KD and drew a reaction out of James, who seemed to want the 24-year-old two-guard on his squad.
Paul went three picks later to his longtime friend in James.
Here’s a look at the full rosters:
Booker and Paul will have a busy Sunday. Booker will be competing in the 3-point contest pregame while Paul will do the same in the skills challenge.
Those pregame festivities begin at 4:30 p.m., with the game kicking off at 6 p.m. on TNT.
