With that in mind, as a way of introducing himself to the community, what better way to do so than holding a cereal drive called "Booker’s breakfast assist"? That’s exactly what he did this past Saturday. "It’s something that I’ve always liked," Booker said. "It was something that I always enjoyed when I was young, no matter what time of day." Booker spent that morning trading photos for donors’ cereal boxes. More importantly for him, he spent the morning — at Smith’s market in West Jordan — shaking hands and telling the public a bit about himself. The event turned out to be a big success. The fan base donated over 100 boxes of cereal. Smith’s donated 145 gallons of milk. Booker himself brought 45 boxes of cereal from his own stash. Salt Lake Tribune

The goal for Booker is to raise awareness for hunger through his nonprofit foundation that will launch at the beginning of 2015. He and his agent Christopher Brown have expressed the desire to take the program national. "I think it’s very important to do stuff like this," Booker said. "I think it’s important to let the fans know how much we appreciate them, and I want to do whatever I can from the community." Salt Lake Tribune

As the Wizards exited the court, the Utah Jazz took center stage and did so hours after their organization agreed to terms with the free agent forward. Booker spent his first four NBA seasons in Washington. He’ll spend at least the next two in Utah after agreeing to a reported two-year, $10 million offer. “They wanted me,” Booker said about the Jazz during an exclusive interview with CSN. “We had a meeting Sunday. It went well. I liked them, they like me. “Washington, I don’t know what happened with that, but I’m definitely happy with my new team.” CSNWashington.com
