Booker to sign with Pacers after Sixers buyout

Publish date:

Former Philadelphia 76ers big man Trevor Booker will sign with the Indiana Pacers upon clearing waivers, according to a report from Yahoo Sports.

Multiple outlets reported Booker agreed to a contract buyout Wednesday. The Sixers waived Booker to make room for veteran forward Ersan Ilyasova.

According to the Yahoo report, Booker will sign a minimum deal for the rest of the season.

Booker, 30, was part of a trade earlier this season centered on center Jahlil Okafor, who was shipped to the Brooklyn Nets.

Booker’s role in Philadelphia had been limited — with the 6-foot-8 power forward averaging 4.7 points and 3.7 rebounds.
