Phoenix Suns star guard Devin Booker is reportedly unhappy after the Suns released "best friend" and college teammate Tyler Ulis on Saturday.

Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania reported Sunday that Booker "is upset with the team's front office" after Ulis was released. "Booker and Ulis have a close relationship, and Booker wasn't happy about his former University of Kentucky being waived Saturday," Charania reported.

The report comes on the same day Booker became eligible for a five-year contract extension worth up to $148 million. "Both sides have long expected to find common ground for a deal," Charania reported.

Later on Sunday, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Booker and his agent will meet with Suns owner Robert Sarver and general manager Ryan McDonough in Los Angeles on Tuesday "to present the framework of his rookie extension contract offer."
