Calvin Lawrence Booth (born May 7, 1976) is an American former professional basketball player. He is currently the Assistant General Manager for the Denver Nuggets of the NBA.

College career[edit]

Calvin Booth attended Penn State University after starring at Groveport Madison High School in Ohio. As a junior, he was named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year. As a senior, he was a second team All-Big Ten Conference pick. He earned his Bachelor of Arts at Penn State in 1998.

NBA playing career[edit]

Booth was drafted by the Washington Wizards in the second round (35th overall) of the 1999 NBA draft. He played for the Wizards, the Dallas Mavericks, Seattle SuperSonics, Philadelphia 76ers, Milwaukee Bucks, Minnesota Timberwolves, and Sacramento Kings, averaging 3.3 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game.[1] During the 2006–07 NBA season, he played for the Washington Wizards a second time, providing play from off the bench and starting occasionally.

On January 13, 2004, as a member of the Supersonics, Booth recorded a career-high 10 blocks in 17 minutes of playing time. He accompanied this with 2 points, 0 rebounds, 0 assists, and 0 steals.[2] The Supersonics lost this game to the Cavaliers, 96–104.[3]

In Game 5 of the 2001 NBA Playoffs against the Utah Jazz, Booth made a layup with 9.8 seconds remaining to give Dallas a game-ending 84–83 lead[4] and therefore a 3–2 series victory; this was the Mavericks' first winning playoff series since the 1988 Western Conference semifinals against Denver.

On September 10, 2007 Booth signed as a free agent with the Philadelphia 76ers.[5]

Front office career[edit]

Booth joined the Denver Nuggets in 2017 as assistant general manager. He started his front office career with the New Orleans Pelicans as a scout during the 2012-3 season. After one year there he moved to the Minnesota Timberwolves, working his way up to director of player personnel.[6]
