Trevor Booker retires from NBA after 10 seasons
Free agent Trevor Booker announced his retirement from the NBA in a heartfelt video and letter to his fans on Twitter Tuesday afternoon.
Booker played 10 seasons in the NBA - suiting up for the Wizards, Jazz, Sixers, Nets, and most recently, the Pacers in 2018. Considered undersized for the power forward position coming out of Clemson, Booker didn’t garner much fantasy appeal over the course of his career. He was, however, considered a valuable rotational big man off the bench. Booker had his best season during the 2016-2017 campaign as a member of the Brooklyn Nets where he averaged 10.0 points, 8.0 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.1 steals across 24.7 minutes per game. With minority ownership in the D.C. United soccer club and several other business ventures, Booker will be doing just fine in retirement. He’s hanging up his sneaks after averaging 6.9 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 0.7 steals, and 0.5 blocks in 532 regular season games.
