James reached the 45-day limit on his two-way contract - an option for lower-level players whom teams use as G League components and occasional National Basketball Association depth - on Wednesday, and the Suns are deciding to make him a more permanent part of their team.

Luckily, he's set to return before the New Year.

Booker, who scored 46 points to lift the Suns past the 76ers on Monday night and once scored 70 points in a game, had 19 points and eight assists in 39 minutes. He's obviously one of the great young players in this league.

From a Philadelphia fan perspective, watching Booker connect on 17 of 32 field goals, including 5 of 8 from three-point range, was beyond frustrating since the Suns shooting guard seemed to single-handedly defeat the Sixers on his own.

The entire Valley of the Suns held their collective breaths as we sat and watched Devin freeze, legs spread, and torso hunched over, while seemingly the entire Suns organization huddled around him to see exactly what was the matter.

He'll be back in action soon enough, though.
