Update: The Brooklyn Nets have signed power forward Trevor Booker to a 2-year, 18 million deal, according to Tony Jones of The Salt Lake City Tribune.

Adrian Wojnarowski reports the deal is worth more than 18.5 million.

The Brooklyn Nets are close to adding a power forward to the roster, as they’re on the verge of signing Trevor Booker, reports Tony Jones of The Salt Lake Tribune.

Booker, a six-year veteran, averaged 5.9 points and 5.7 rebounds per game for the Utah Jazz in 2015-2016, mostly in a backup role to Derrick Favors. With just Chris McCullough on the roster, adding somebody like Booker, or Kris Humphries for that matter, makes a whole bunch of sense. With target Kent Bazemore off the board — he re-signed with the Atlanta Hawks late last night — the Nets will need to get serious about their remaining possibilities.

Does this take Ryan Anderson off the table? Will they offer Allen Crabbe the contract he wants? After signing backup center Justin Hamilton on Friday, the Nets’ roster is slowly starting to take shape. But what happens next? Your guess is as good as ours.
