Utah Jazz reportedly agree to sign Trevor Booker to two-year deal

Tuesday July 15th, 2014

The Utah Jazz have agreed to sign free agent forward Trevor Booker to a two-year deal worth $10 million, according to Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

In 2013-14, Booker, 26, averaged 6.8 points and 5.3 rebounds as he helped the Wizards reach the second round of the playoffs. He posted averages of 6.4 points and 5.1 rebounds over four seasons in Washington.

The Wizards last week agreed to terms with free agent forward Paul Pierce.

Utah, which finished last season with a Western Conference-low 25 wins, opted to retain forward Gordon Hayward by matching the four-year, $63 million max offer sheet extended by Charlotte.

The team also drafted former Duke forward Rodney Hood with its second pick in the first round of this year's draft.
