Utah Jazz sign F Trevor Booker for $10 million over two years.

Booker was solid in averaging 6.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, 0.6 steals, and 0.6 blocks in just under 22 minutes per game with the Wizards last season, but will join a crowded frontcourt in Utah. The 26-year-old has potential to produce, but Booker may not see much of a minutes boost playing behind Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter and will have trouble producing anything more than deep-league fantasy value.
Jul 15 - 1:40 PM

The Knicks have "continued to show interest" in unrestricted FA Trevor Booker, according to Marc Berman of the NY Post.

Another half-dozen teams have been linked to Booker, who averaged 6.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, 0.6 steals and 0.6 blocks in under 22 minutes per game last season. The 26-year-old also shot 55.1 percent from the field, including 61.9 percent from within eight feet, and teams view him as an affordable source of frontcourt depth.
Jul 12 - 10:16 AM

Unrestricted free agent Trevor Booker is getting interest from the Heat, Wolves, Jazz, Nets, Knicks, Magic and Wizards.

Who says Cook Books are obsolete? Anyway, Booker is below average in several facets of his game besides rebounding, but teams shifting more focus on 3-pointers makes offensive rebounding a bit more valuable. He wouldn't start on really any team and would have the most fantasy value on the Jazz.
Jul 1 - 10:13 AM

The Wizards declined to make a qualifying offer to forward Trevor Booker on Saturday, which will make him an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Booker is an adequate big man, but far from a game changer. He'll be free to sign with any team this summer.
Jun 28 - 10:12 PM

Pending free agent Trevor Booker stated in a recent interview, "A lot of teams are calling right now, [and] we're in negotiations with a few different teams."

Booker probably shouldn't have said that considering that he's still under contract with the Wizards until June 30, and he's not even allowed to negotiate with other teams until July 1. What Booker is describing is called "tampering," and as we saw with Phil Jackson earlier this month, it's possible the league dishes out a fine to the teams that have reached out to Booker.

Restricted free agent Trevor Booker will require more than his original qualifying offer of $3.4 million.

Because of his playing time, Booker meets the "starter criteria" in the NBA's collective bargaining agreement. The Wizards are expected to try and bring Booker back for his rebounding prowess even with the increase in pay.
Jun 6 - 9:47 AM

As expected, Trevor Booker is starting at power forward in place of Nene (suspended) for Sunday's Game 4.

Booker will have some big shoes to defend on both ends of the floor, as Nene had been playing nice D on Joakim Noah in this series. While Booker looks like a decent sleeper play today, the odds seem better than Noah will have a big game.
Apr 27 - 12:11 PM

Randy Wittman wouldn't reveal who will start Sunday's Game 4 in place of suspended power forward Nene, but all signs are pointing toward Trevor Booker.

Booker held down the job earlier in the season when Nene was out, although Drew Gooden came on with a few nice games late in the season. It would be surprising to see someone other than Booker in the first unit today.
Apr 27 - 11:42 AM

Trevor Booker shifted to the bench and had three points, six rebounds and one assist in his new role behind Nene on Sunday.

Booker logged 19 minutes which isn't too much lower than the 25 per game he averaged as a starter this season. He made only 1-of-3 shots and struggled against the length of Chicago's frontcourt, but coach Randy Wittman seems ready to ride Booker ahead of Drew Gooden (three minutes) and Al Harrington (two minutes).
Apr 20 - 11:30 PM

Trevor Booker started at PF again on Friday but scored only six points with four rebounds in 19 minutes of action.

The victory secures the Wizards' playoff position 6.5 games ahead of the ninth-place Knicks in the East, all but guaranteeing that they'll make the playoffs for the first time since the 2007-08 season. The expected return of Nene (sprained MCL) in early April will give their frontcourt some much-needed depth, but it spells trouble for the already-shaky value of guys like Booker and Drew Gooden.
Mar 28 - 9:56 PM

Trevor Booker played just 15 minutes due to foul trouble against the Lakers on Friday, scoring 10 points with three boards, one assist, two steals and one block.

He was overshadowed by seasoned vets Al Harrington and Drew Gooden tonight. Booker does have double-digit scoring games in four of his last five, averaging 9.4 points, 6.2 boards, 1.2 blocks and 1.0 steals on 60.0 percent from the field in that span, so he's held up as a low-ceiling player to own in standard leagues for now.
Mar 22 - 4:26 AM

Trevor Booker started and had 10 points, eight rebounds, two steals and a block in Tuesday's overtime loss to the Kings.

Booker has really struggled recently and is averaging just 6.6 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.2 blocks over his last five games. The emergence of Drew Gooden is a concern, as is the fact Booker has scored six or zero points in three of his last five games. He also aggravated a finger injury tonight, but was able to play through it.
Mar 19 - 1:49 AM

Trevor Booker double-doubled with 11 points and 11 rebounds in Friday's win over the Magic.

Booker also chipped in with a steal and block and if he could do this with more frequency he'd be on to something, but he has been well off the fantasy radar for a while now. If Bradley Beal misses significant time it could open things up for Booker to be productive, but we're not behind an add in 12-16 team formats.
Mar 15 - 1:10 AM

Trevor Booker scored just four points in 16 minutes against the Jazz on Wednesday with four boards, one assist and one steal.

Coach Randy Wittman has played the matchups at the power forward spot for much of the season while Nene was out, so Booker flopping to the likes of Drew Gooden and Al Harrington is particularly discouraging. Kevin Seraphin (knee) has been out the entire time while Nene went down and Booker's goose might be cooked as a fantasy option in most leagues. He doesn't have a high upside anyway.
