Jones: Brooklyn Nets reach deal with Trevor Booker

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune tweets that the Nets have a deal with back-up power forward Trevor Booker of the Jazz.

Not long after, Mike Mazzeo confirmed the deal...

According to various sources, Booker will earn $18.5 million over two years, about the same contract they offered Jared Dudley who reportedly turned them down Friday.

Booker, at 6'8" and 228 pounds, is a high energy rebounder and defender at the 4, where the Nets have limited roster resources since trading Thaddeus Young on Draft Night. Booker averaged 5.9 points and 5.7 rebounds this past season in 21 minutes per game. He shot 29.3 percent from deep. Over the past three years, the 28-year-old out of Clemson has missed only 14 games.

You may remember Booker from last January ... and this circus shot.
