JULY 8th, 4:27pm: The signing is official, the team announced via press release.

3:24pm: Booker’s deal is for two years and $18MM, per Jones (on Twitter).

JULY 2nd, 3:01pm: The Nets and unrestricted free agent Trevor Booker have reached an agreement on a contract, Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune reports (via Twitter). The length and terms of the arrangement are not yet known. Brooklyn apparently pivoted to Booker when negotiations with Marvin Williams fell through, with Williams looking more and more like he will be making his return to the Hornets next season, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical (Twitter link).

Brooklyn continues to add veteran pieces and Booker will join Jeremy Lin and Justin Hamilton, whom GM Sean Marks previously came to agreements with, on a revamped Nets squad.  Booker was reportedly drawing interest from multiple unnamed teams.

Booker, 28, appeared in 79 games for the Jazz last season and averaged 5.9 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 20.7 minutes per outing. His slash line was .490/.293/.670.

    I like what they’ve done since the new front office took over the organization.

  2. Not very impressed with Marks moves…. not exactly something to get excited about…… very blah

    • With basically no draft picks, promising young assets to develop, and playoffs no where in sight…no exciting players were going to go to Brooklyn. The rebuilding process for Brooklyn is going to be long, slow, and painful…but it is necessary.

    What a joke? People will come to see a guy average 5 points a game! Am I reading this correctly $18 million per year! I wouldn’t watch this guy for free in a school yard. This is absolute insanity. The Nets won’t win 15 games!

    This Brooklyn team seems like they may not totally suck, and as a Celtics fan, that is not good news. I’d be especially concerned if they come away with both Crabbe and Tyler Johnson.
