Forward Trevor Booker reaches deal with Nets

Multiple sources are confirming that power forward Trevor Booker has agreed to sign a two-year deal with the Brooklyn Nets.

The 6’8″ Booker is a rugged rebounder and solid defender who will give the Nets plenty of minutes at the power forward slot, which is currently a huge position of need for the team.  That doesn’t change even with Booker, who spent last season with the Utah Jazz, in the fold.

Sean Marks continues to find high character guys at an unbelievable value, especially in today’s free agent market.  Booker’s deal with the Nets is reportedly worth $18.5 million over two years.

The Nets have roughly $31 million remaining in cap space and their roster currently stands at 10 players.  Booker joins Jeremy Lin, Justin Hamilton, Brook Lopez, Bojan Bogdanovic, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Chris McCullough, Sean Kilpatrick and rookies Caris LeVert and Isaiah Whitehead on the roster.

The Nets still have plenty of work to do as NBA teams continue handing out boatloads of cash to free agents.  Power forward and adding another shooter are still their two main priorities.
