Lands four-year extension
Shamet was traded from the Nets to the Suns in late July after he averaged 9.3 points and 1.8 rebounds in 23.0 minutes per game across 61 appearances with Brooklyn during the 2020-21 campaign. He's expected to come off the bench to begin the year but, but coach Monty Williams reportedly plans to use the 24-year-old in a significant role.

Excellent two-way performance
With Chris Paul sitting out for rest, Payton was in charge of running point for the Suns off the bench while Cameron Payne got the start. Though Payton put up an impressive two-way statline, there will be limited opportunities for him to do so during the regular season since he's the third point guard on the depth chart.

Off injury report
Booker has been easing back into game shape after being in COVID-19 protocols and has yet to play in the preseason. While it's not guaranteed that he'll play Wednesday, being off the injury report is a good sign. Wednesday marks the Suns' final preseason contest before the opener against the Nuggets Oct. 20.
