Booker reportedly miffed at Suns for releasing Ulis

Devin Booker is reportedly not pleased with Suns releasing his best friend, Tyler Ulis.

What has been a solid offseason for the Phoenix Suns — drafting Deandre Ayton with the No. 1 overall draft pick and also coming away with Elie Okobo and Mikal Bridges — may have hit a bit of a rough patch.

Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports Suns standout guard Devin Booker is not happy with the team’s front office for releasing his best friend, guard Tyler Ulis, who started 43 games for Phoenix last season.

The news comes as Booker becomes eligible for the five-year maximum rookie contract.

The 5-foot-10, 150-pound Ulis, 22, averaged 7.8 points, 1.8 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.0 steals in 23.4 minutes in 71 games (43 starts) for the Suns last season.
