All-Star guard Devin Booker was reportedly upset with the Phoenix Suns‘ decision to avoid pursuing guard D’Angelo Russell in free agency last offseason. 

According to SNY’s Ian Begley, Booker is close friends with Russell and “campaigned” for the Suns to sign him. Phoenix signed veteran point guard Ricky Rubio instead, and Booker reportedly “wasn’t happy” with the organization’s decision to pass up on Russell.

At the time, Duane Rankin of the Arizona Republic reported that the Suns didn’t feel Russell would be a good influence on Booker off the court.
