Will Devin Booker Play For The Golden State Warriors For Game 1 of The 2020-21 Season?
- Yes +1000
- No -5000
With the Phoenix Suns playing at an elite level in the NBA bubble, it is hard to see Devin Booker going anywhere. The Suns are the only remaining undefeated (5-0) team in the bubble and are on track to make the playoffs if they can continue on their hot streak.
If the Suns do indeed make the playoffs, upcoming free agents could see the winning theme that is going on in Phoenix and want to join forces with Booker as well.
Aside from the Suns doing so well right now in the bubble, if Booker were to leave Phoenix, there is no guarantee that the Warriors would even be one of his desired destinations. He would certainly have to accept a much smaller role begins the Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson and it is hard to see a player of Booker's caliber doing such a thing while he is in the prime of his career.
Bettors should be taking this into consideration when looking at Booker’s NBA odds and bet on the favorite for some easy pocket change.
