Devin Booker Now Eligible For Supermax Deal

When the NBA made it official that Devin Booker had made the All-NBA first team, the announcement made the Phoenix Suns star a very rich (well, a MUCH richer) young man. It triggered Booker's "supermax" eligibility. The Suns can now offer him a 4-year, $211M contract extension. 

That deal, which could be offered and signed as early as July 1st, wouldn't actually kick in until his current rookie max extension expires, two seasons from now. Booker is still set to earn $33.8 million next season, and $36 million in 2023-24. 

As noted by NBA reporter Evan Sidery, the 25-year-old Booker, after the conclusion of the supermax extension in 2028, will have made $377.5M in his career. He'll be 31, with plenty of time left in his career to bump his total earnings over the half-billion-dollar mark.

The 3-time All-Star is coming off the best year of his spectacular 7-year career, scoring 26.8 points per game, with 5 rebounds and 4.8 assists, along with 38.3% shooting from three-point range.
