The Orlando Magic stand among several teams to have expressed an interest in signing free-agent forward Trevor Booker, reports Michael Lee of the Washington Post. Booker became an unrestricted free agent when the Washington Wizards elected not to tender him a qualifying offer.

Washington acquired Booker's rights from the Minnesota Timberwolves on the night of the 2010 NBA Draft. In his four-year Wizards career, Booker averaged 6.4 points and 5.1 rebounds per game on 53.4 percent shooting from the floor. He made 45 starts in 72 appearances for Washington in the 2013/14 season, averaging 6.8 points and 5.3 rebounds while shooting a career-best 55.1 percent from the floor.

Though undersized at 6-foot-7, Booker nonetheless can capably play power forward due to his strength and willingness to bang inside. Between Kyle O'Quinn, Nik Vučević, Andrew Nicholson, and Dewayne Dedmon, Orlando wouldn't appear to be a team in need of Booker's services, but he could be a solid pickup for the right price.
