NBA playing career

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. The Supersonics lost this game to the Cavaliers, 96–104.
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 and therefore a 3–2 series victory; this was the Mavericks' first winning playoff series since the 1988 Western Conference semifinals against Denver.
