    Booker tweets that he has signed with an agent

    Anthony Booker tweeted that he has signed with an agent, and that God is good (not verbatim). Does he actually think he can play in the NBA? Quite honestly, I think the NBDL is a far bit of a reach for him. Maybe he is hiring an agent for the overseas professional ranks..

    Good for Books. He gave us some fine minutes this year. I think he should be able to make a go of Europe or D-League.

    He will absolutely make money playing basketball. As will all of the scholarship seniors from this year if they choose to persue it.

    An agent is useful beyond the NBA....

    Re: Booker tweets that he has signed with an agent

    Just means that he wants to play professionally. Not that he's expecting a first round pick.

    He's got the size. If he can find a system that works for him, why not give it a try. You're only young once in life.

    Re: Booker tweets that he has signed with an agent

    I look at it the same way I look at a guy like Lenz at pro day... as long as he is realistic about what his chances are for a pro career, and he knows what to expect (likely CFL for Lenz, Europe for Booker) then I don't see any reason for them not to give it a go. I'm sure that Hoiberg has given him a fair evaluation of what he can expect.

    yeah, and under a different system i think booker could have gotten a lot more playing time. we were extremely offensively oriented.

    Re: Booker tweets that he has signed with an agent

    I agree that all of the graduating seniors have a chance to play for money. NBA seems like a far stretch, but who knows. Booker certainly has the physical ability to play in the NBA, just not a great grasp on fundamentals and the mental aspect of the game. All of the graduating seniors I could see playing in the NBA even if it's an extremely short stretch or a few years down the road. I don't think any of them will turn into career starters though.
