Butler on Suns rookie Booker: "He was talking trash to me; crazy. I was like, ‘Excuse me.’ Sometimes I think you should just play."— Sam Smith (@SamSmithHoops) November 19, 2015
Thursday, speaking with Bill Simmons on the B.S. Podcast, Butler praised the Suns' young talent. Asked by Simmons to identify "young players, on the way up, that aren't totally household names yet, but you respect, and they're on your radar," Butler responded:
"I'll tell you one player I do like. Devin Booker. I like that kid. He's young, he can really shoot it. He can get to the rim. He can play."
Butler talks Booker and other players he's impressed with at the 54 minute mark.
