Veteran forward Trevor Booker hasn’t played an NBA game since the 2017/18 season, but he remains on teams’ radars, according to Alex Kennedy of HoopsHype (Twitter link). Sources tell Kennedy that Booker has received interest from several NBA clubs, with a handful of playoff teams among those monitoring him.
Booker, an eight-year NBA veteran, appeared in a total of 68 games during the 2017/18 campaign for the Nets, Sixers, and Pacers, averaging 6.3 PPG and 4.7 RPG in 17.0 MPG. After failing to catch on with an NBA team in the summer of 2018, he signed with China’s Shanxi Brave Dragons, but left the team early in the season and returned stateside to undergo foot surgery.
During the 2019 offseason, Booker worked out for multiple potential suitors, including the Nuggets, Bucks, and Clippers. Although he didn’t find a new NBA home at that point, he’s still just 32 years old and hasn’t given up on a comeback.
According to Kennedy, it’s “very possible” a team in need of frontcourt depth will sign Booker at some point after the February 6 trade deadline.
