While Tyler Ulis, Mike James and Troy Daniels figure to see more action, none of them bring the high ceiling and offensive explosiveness that Booker does on a nightly basis. As a result, the rookie guard will have his two-way deal converted into a regular National Basketball Association contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com reports. Booker is one of the few reasons to watch the team play as now constructed because he's blossoming into an offensive star. Wojnarowski reports the team plans such a move by Thursday morning.

The Suns announced that Booker will undergo further tests upon the team's return to Phoenix.

A unique success story, James played in Europe the past five seasons and did not debut as an National Basketball Association performer until he was 27. He's playing in 21.8 minutes per game. He has scored 38 and 46 points in his previous two games and is averaging 24.5 points per game.

The once-promising Suns backcourt is already without Eric Bledsoe after he was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks in November and will have to make do without Booker for some time.
