The Brooklyn Nets made another solid offseason move on Saturday by reportedly agreeing to sign power forward Trevor Booker. According to The Salt Lake Tribune, Booker and the Nets have agreed on a two-year, $18.5 million deal.
This is an excellent signing by the Nets as Booker provides some toughness and energy off their bench. Last season with the Jazz, Booker averaged 5.9 points and 5.7 rebounds in 21 minutes a game. Not really gaudy numbers but Booker does the little things on the court like setting screens and crashing the boards.
Under the direction of new general manager Sean Marks, the Nets have been making some rather under-the-radar but solid moves. Brooklyn signed Jeremy Lin to a flexible deal and now has the done the same with Booker, two quality players that should help them through their rebuilding phase.
