Player Profile: Trevor Booker – The Hustler
When the free agency period started, Trevor Booker was one of the first players the Brooklyn Nets contacted. The 28-year-old, 6-foot-8 power forward has signed a 2-year, $18 million deal with a guaranteed second year. The Nets were in need of an athletic defensive enforcer, and Booker fits that bill very nicely. Before signing with the Nets, Booker had played his first four NBA seasons with the Washington Wizards, and two more with the Utah Jazz. In both his former teams, Booker gradually became a fan favorite due to his constant hustle and take-no-prisoners basketball style.
