Article says he was invited to the Portsmouth Invitational, which is the 1st step for guys trying to make the NBA. Juice got invited to that last year, but I don't think showed very well. Hopefully Boothe does better.

Pearson was invited and had a decent PI. Can't recall where he's playing but Boothe is far more NBA ready than either Juice or Rian was. He has the size, the body, some range and an excellent post up game. Remains to be seen how he does facing the hoop and his quickness has been questioned.

I wish he could have mastered that hook shot. If he could get the little hook to drop consistently I think he would look like and NBA player. Myself, I can't see him going right to the NBA. Maybe after a couple seasons in Europe.

He has that lumbering look about him. Difficult to know how fast and quick he might be until compared to the higher competition. No doubt he can have a pro career at some level. Wish him the best.

Rocketnation reports that Boothe has workouts scheduled with the Pistons and the Nets. He was not invited to the NBA draft combine though.

Could definitely be a glue guy. Team oriented, big body, sound fundamentals.

Nathan had a workout with Utah today. Here's a link to the post-workout interview:

Reported on twitter that Boothe will work out with Toronto next week.

I've heard said that teams typically only workout guys that they are considering draft possibilities. Toronto will be the 4th team to give a workout so far. So, I don't know if he has a realistic chance of being drafted or not, but it's gotta be exciting for him.

he's gonna surprise some folks. has a lot of NBA skills. not certain he will be drafted but think it is quite possible and am sticking to my longtime prediction he will be the first rocket in the 2000s to play in the NBA.

Report on twitter that Boothe worked out with Washington today. Also, rumored he has/had workouts with Miami & Houston.
