Years Played: 2006 - 2009

From Washington Times:

Booker initally was credited with 16 points against the Bobcats on Saturday (although that was changed to 14 because of an officiating error) and 14 points against Chicago on Monday. He knows that without Blatche, he’ll need to continue adding offense to his game, and he had some experience doing that in Israel last summer. Booker joined Bnei Hasharon in August but played only until October, when he returned to the U.S. after injuring his thigh.

“When I was overseas, I was the main player. They wanted me to be the main scorer, and I wasn’t used to that,” Booker said. “I wasn’t comfortable taking those shots last year. I’ve been working, so I feel more comfortable taking those shots [this year].”

Booker’s teammates clearly seem comfortable when he’s on the floor.

“Trevor’s been playing well,” forward Rashard Lewis said. “He plays hard, he rebounds, he defends, he does all the little things. He does the dirty work to help us win ballgames. I have no problem with Trevor being out there. I know he’s going to play hard, and he’s going to play the game the right way.”
