Video: Trevor Booker plays a fast one on Tyronn Lue

Trevor Booker, Tyronn Lue

On Wednesday night, the Cleveland Cavaliers wrapped up their second back-to-back set of this young season with a matchup against the Brooklyn Nets inside the Barclays Center. Despite a valiant come-back effort in the fourth quarter, the Cavs, who were led by LeBron James’ 29 points, 13 assists, 10 rebounds, and four steals, fell in 112-107 fashion, marking their second loss of the 2017-18 campaign.

During a timeout in Wednesday night’s game, Nets forward Trevor Booker, who finished with six points, eight rebounds, and four assists, decided to mosey over to the Cleveland sideline for a spot of eaves dropping. At first, Booker went unnoticed. However, Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue, who was busy drawing up a play on his clipboard, finally saw the former Clemson Tiger standout. Coach Lue looked, took a double-take, then sent Booker on his way with a laugh.

Booker, now 29 years of age, posted some of the best statistical figures of his career last season. In his 71 games played for the Nets during their 2016-17 run, the former 23rd overall pick in the 2010 Draft (Minnesota Timberwolves) averaged 10 points on 52 percent shooting from the field, 8.0 rebounds (career-high), 1.9 assists (career-high), and 1.1 steals (career-high) in 24.7 minutes per outing.

Clearly, there was no ill-intent. And besides, it was nice to see coach Lue having a laugh at Booker’s sneaky antics.
