Mychal Thompson was shocked by Devin Booker ’s low draft picks
Klay Thompson’s father, Mychal, could not understand that Devin Booker ended up with the 13th overall pick at the 2015 draft. The two NBA championships with the Lakers pointed to the shooting and other skills of the Suns guards that scouts overlooked.
Booker became an All-Star this season (replaces injured Damian Lillard) and sees twelve players ahead of him, including Mario Herzonia, Willie Cowley Stan, Stan Lee Johnson, Frank Kaminsky, Justis Winslow, Trey Lyles.
The former Kentucky Wildcats are one of only three players selected to the All-Star in the 2015 draft. The other two are Karl-Anthony Towns and Kristaps Porzingis.
This season, the 23-year-old shooting guard contributed an average of 26.1 points, 4.2 rebounds and 6.6 assists per game for the Suns.
