Rumor: Trevor Booker gaining interest from several contenders


Trevor Booker has not played in an NBA game since 2018, but the former first-round pick is making an NBA comeback.

According to a tweet by Alex Kennedy, the 23rd pick of the 2010 Draft will likely be joining a team that could give him a championship ring.

Several contenders are taking a look at free agent Trevor Booker.

Booker worked out for the Milwaukee Bucks this week and he worked out for the Denver Nuggets last week, according to sources.

He has averaged 6.9 points and 5.5 rebounds over the course of his eight-year career.

Slam Online’s Chris Crouse also added to the story by adding another team to the list. He also named both Los Angeles Clippers as a possible destination for the former Clemson Tiger.

Crouse also pointed out that it will be hard to fit Booker in the Nuggets rotation despite the team’s interest in him:

Denver is an interesting fit for the big man. The team’s frontcourt rotation appears solidified with Mason Plumlee, Jerami Grant, and Juan Hernangomez among the players expected to get minutes behind Paul Millsap and Nikola Jokic.

The Bucks and the Clippers appear to have the bigger need for him, however. The Bucks don’t have much of a frontcourt save for the Lopez brothers. Having Booker take minutes will allow the two to get some much-needed rest over the season.

Meanwhile, the Clippers have Patrick Patterson and JaMychal Green on rotation. Depending on who you ask, the last time Patterson was any good was during his years with Toronto or his final days with the Houston Rockets. Booker will definitely be an upgrade over him.

Booker has built a reputation for himself as a reliable bench option. He has averages of 6.9 points and 5.5 rebounds in his career, but he can contribute on defense with his length and power.

It will be interesting to see where Booker will land, but the team that will get him will surely get a great boost.
