Fenerbahçe Beko reached a two-year deal with successful center Devin Booker, who spent the last 2 seasons in Khimki Moscow.
The statement from Fenerbahçe’s official website is as follows:
“Fenerbahçe Beko Men’s Basketball Team has reached a two-year deal with US center Devin Booker (2.05, 1991), who spent the last two seasons in Khimki Moscow, as part of the new season roster planning.
Who is Devin Booker?
Born on February 28, 1991 in Whitmire, South Carolina, Devin Booker played for Clemson throughout his college career (2009-13).
Booker, who made his way to Europe in the 2013-14 season, signed his first contract with the Sluc Nancy team in France, and was transferred to Bourg Basket in December 2013. Having completed the 2014-15 season here, Booker transferred to the French representative ES Chalon-sur-Saone team in 2015-16. The successful center was selected as the most valuable player of the French League with his performance in the 2015-16 season.
Devin Booker changed country to Germany in the 2016-17 season and joined the Bayern Munich team. Booker, who played here until the end of the 2018-19 season, transferred to Khimki Moscow in 2019-20.
Devin Booker won the German League title with Bayern Munich in the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons. Booker was also part of the team that won the German Cup in 2018. Our player was selected in the top five of the EuroCup in the 2017-18 season.
Our successful center had one EuroLeague experience with Bayern Munich and two seasons with Khimki Moscow. Competing with Bayern Munich in EuroCup for two seasons, Booker will live his ninth season in European basketball.
Booker is a tall who offers variety in offense with both his finishing under the rim and the threat of a shot. The successful player will be one of the most important parts of Fenerbahçe Beko’s long rotation for the 2021-22 season.
2013-14 (Nancy, Bourg)
