2010 NBA Draft, 23rd Pick: Minnesota Timberwolves Select Trevor Booker, Forward from Clemson

The first four-year player selected tonight, Booker finished fifth in scoring all-time at Clemson with 1,725 points. But he did more altering other teams’ shots, blocking 249 shots in his four seasons.

And, this just in — he’s going to the wheeling, dealing Washington Wizards.

According to the ESPN people on the television, the deal looks like this:

- Washington gets Booker and Minnesota’s 56th overall pick

- Minnesota gets the 30th and 35th overall pick

Booker is a bit undersized at 6-7, 240 pounds, because he’s a post player, not a shooter. So there will be some adjustment period needed when he gets to the District. They’ll have a better idea of what they have after summer league.

It’s possible he could compete for minutes up front beind Andray Blatche and JaVale McGee, but the Wizards’ roster remains in the early stages of a makeover.
