Community Projection: Trevor Booker

Trevor Booker is fun to follow, because he's tough, quick-witted, no-nonsense and takes guys' heads off on screens.  He's also really, really fast, and on a fast-breaking team, that's a good thing.

The question, though, is whether "Grown-Ass Man" can actually play.  Other than run and set screens, Booker hasn't contributed much in his brief NBA career.  His rebounding figures in preseason are a bit misleading because most of his production came in the final game, and his jump shot is tentative and erratic.  After being able to play instinctively in Oliver Purnell's system at Clemson, Booker is finding it difficult to pick up the nuances of Flip Saunders' schemes.  You can tell that the wheels are turning as he makes his move.  

But of course, Booker is also old for a rookie, so if he can't cut it this year, he may not be able to cut it ever.  So let's predict his stats.  As always, predict as many or as far as you like.

  • Games played
  • Points per game
  • Rebounds per game
  • Minutes per game
  • Field goal percentage
  • Free-throw percentage
  • True shooting percentage
  • Rebound percentage
  • Turnover ratio
  • Usage rate
  • PER
Bonus question: Suppose you were Flip Saunders and you were specifically ordered by Ernie Grunfeld to figure out a way to get Trevor Booker on the court for 20 minutes every game.  What position would you play Booker at?  What would his role be?  Who would play alongside him?
