Suns hoping Devin Booker hits shots

Phoenix took the Kentucky shooting guard with the No. 13 pick, a smart decision given their accuracy woes last season. Booker is a sniper, arguably one of the best shooters in the draft. Add in their trade for Jon Leuer, and the Suns earned themselves a thumbs-up from ESPN's Amin Elhassan. Draft thumbs-up and thumbs-down
