Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker has been named the Western Conference Player of the Month. And that makes him the first player in franchise history to earn the honor three times, having also done so in February of 2021 and November of 2022.

The shooting guard led the Suns to an 11 and 5 record in January, and averaged over 50 points per game over a three-game span.

Booker surpasses former Suns Charles Barkley, Steve Nash, Shawn Marion and Amar’e Stoudemire, who each earned Player of the Month honors twice.
