​A young man just got PAID, folks.


Devin Booker, the 21-year-old scoring scion of the Phoenix Suns, was always going to be a part of the team's long-term plans as it slowly rolls along with its rebuild. But tonight, what was first reported this week became official. The player has agreed to a five-year max extension worth a reported $158 million.

Yep, that's a lot of dough. And the man himself wasn't going to wait around and let all these reporters own the narrative themselves:

An ​NBA title may not be in the cards just yet, but it's quite likely that the super-powered Warriors will have disbanded by the end of the deal, and equally likely that LeBron James will be officially old by then.

​Sure, the odds will probably always be against the Suns; they're not known as a free agent destination and their record for developing talent is spotty. But Booker once dropped 70 points in a game. And he's sticking around for the long haul.

Congrats on the payday, playboy.
