MANILA, Philippines — Draymond Green offered an interesting take on Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker—an insight that could also prove costly for the Golden State Warriors big man.

Appearing on TNT’s Inside the NBA, Green isn’t for Booker staying in Phoenix, which has been on a resurgence since the NBA restart.


“It’s great to see Book playing well and Phoenix playing well, but get my man out of Phoenix,” said Green, who guested on the show with hosts Charles Barkley, Ernie Johnson and Kenny Smith.

“It’s not good for him. It’s not good for his career. Sorry, Chuck. But they gotta get Book out of Phoenix. I need my man somewhere he can play great basketball all the time and win because he’s that type of player.”


When he was asked by Johnson if he was tampering, Green replied “Maybe.”

But Booker leaving Phoenix isn’t likely to happen anytime soon with the All-Star reportedly just about to wrap up the first season of a five-year max contract extension he signed with the Suns in 2018.

The Suns trading him to the Warriors is also deemed highly unlikely as well.

Regardless, Green could face a hefty fine from NBA commissioner Adam Silver, who has been very strict about tampering.
