Official: Deishuan Booker is a new player for Nutribullet Treviso

Nutribullet Treviso, after the arrivals of Ky Bowman and James Young, has announced the acquisition of a new reinforcement on the outside for coach Frank Vitucci. The biancoazzurri, in fact, made official the signing of Deishuan Booker from Hapoel Galil Elyon.

“Deishuan Booker, born December 29, 1996 in Las Vegas, 191 cm, will face in Treviso another step in his young career after his first seasons in Europe always growing between Czech Republic, Poland, France, Germany and last year Israel.

Capable of playing both point guard and point guard positions, he is a player with important ballistic skills both in scoring and as a game creator as shown by his assist figures, which are always remarkable. With excellent “basketball IQ,” above-average game vision and passing qualities, he can also get on his own with explosive legs and a solid three-point shot that allow him to be very dangerous on offense. His hands are polite, not only in passing, witness his free-throw percentages always well over 80 percent with spikes above 90.

After high school in Las Vegas at the Andre Agassi School, in college he wore the Long Beach State jersey where in his senior year he traveled to 18.8 points per contest with 45% from two, 38% from three, over 4 assists per contest (conference leader) and an accuracy at free throws (91% season!) that puts him in the annals of the specialty.

In 2019/20 he begins his European career with a year in the Czech Republic, at Nymburk. In his first approach to overseas basketball, he made his mark especially in the Baskeball Champions League where the Czechs reached the Quarterfinals (10 points in 20 minutes). In the same season he won the national cup. The following year Deishaun Booker started the season in Poland with Anwil Wloclawek (15.3 points with 48.0% shooting, 41.5% from 3-point range, 5.4 assists, 3.3 rebounds, 2.0 steals in 10 games), but the Polish team’s results were not satisfactory, so he continued the season in Germany at Gottingen (8.9 points with 41.2% from 3, 4.8 assists, 2.3 rebounds).

In 2021/22 another double experience in France, first at Le Mans, but especially in the second part of the season at Fos in Provence where he travels at 17 points per contest with 4.7 assists, 52% from two-point range and an excellent 44.4% from three, in addition to the “usual” 85% from the lunette. In his last season he is in Israel at Hapoel Galil Elion where he closes the year with important figures such as 16.1 points (sixth overall scorer), 5.4 assists, 3 rebounds and 1.5 rebounds per contest.

In Treviso he will play with No. 1″ this is the note issued by Nutribullet Treviso.
