Up the Ranks

September 25, 2015 at 10:00 am 2 comments

Former Penn State basketball standout Calvin Booth ’98 is moving up the ranks as an NBA executive. Booth, the Nittany Lions’ all-time leader in blocked shots (428), this week was promoted by the Minnesota Timberwolves to director of player personnel.

With his playing days behind him, Booth joined the Timberwolves two years ago as a scout and director of player programs. The 6-foot-11 forward/center enjoyed a 10-year career in the league, and had stints with seven different clubs. In 366 career games, including 83 starts, Booth averaged 3.3 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 0.9 blocks per game. He retired in the summer of 2009.

Booth was hired by the Timberwolves in June 2013 and previously worked as a scout, both pro and collegiate, with the New Orleans Hornets during the 2011-12 season.
