Longtime NBA veteran Trevor Booker has agreed to join the PrimeTime Players for the 2021 season. The 6’8″ forward was last seen in 2018 with the Shanxi Dream Dragons in China.
“Booker joined us for private runs in October,” said PrimeTime coach Chris Thomas. “He fit in immediately, pushing all the players.”
After a four-year career at Clemson where he was named All-ACC First team after his senior season, Booker was selected 23rd overall by the Minnesota Timberwolves in the 2010 NBA Draft. A draft night trade saw Booker dealt to the Washington Wizards where he played four seasons.
In July 2014 Booker signed a two-year deal with the Utah Jazz. He would later play with the New Jersey Nets (2016-17), Philadelphia 76ers (2017-18) and Indiana Pacers (2018).
Foot surgery brought the then 30-year old back to the United States in October 2018. Booker announced his retirement from professional basketball in April 2020.
“He’s a perfect fit for our team both as a player and a person and I knew all of the team couldn’t be more exited to be having him play with us,” added Thomas.
