Trevor Booker is welcoming his new path in a Philadelphia 76ers jersey, excited for what's to come in a more-developed roster with a chance to make an impact for a team with playoff aspirations.

The power forward/center was traded from the Brooklyn Nets for Jahlil Okafor, Nik Stauskas, and a second-rounder on Thursday. Asked if he saw promise with his new team, the veteran spark plug answered matter-of-factly.

“Definitely,” Booker told Alex Kennedy of HoopsHype. “I see a really bright future for this team so if they want me to stay there long-term, I’d definitely love to be a part of it.”

For those Philly fans not familiar with Booker, a gritty forward that has made his niche in this league as a fierce rebounder and energy guy, the 30-year-old offered a unique comparison.

“I’ll bring a lot of passion; I’m a passionate player. I’m a guy that’s going to be aggressive, provide energy and be a pest on defense,” said Booker before being even more specific. “I’m pretty much a bigger T.J. McConnell.”

Booker will give this team a much different look when starters Joel Embiid and Dario Saric, both threats from the perimeter, take a seat — giving an infusion of energy as a predominant motor guy with an infectious winning attitude among those around him.
