Booth, 41, was most recently the director of pro personnel in Minnesota and before that held a similar title in Cleveland. The hire is likely to replace Jared Jeffries, Denver's former director of player personnel who was named president of Echo Fox, a professional eSports organization, earlier this summer.
Booth played 10 seasons in the NBA from 1999-2009 for seven different franchises. He averaged a career high 7.5 points and 4.8 rebounds per game for the Mavericks during the 2000-01 season. He's a native of Reynoldsburg, Ohio, played college basketball at Penn State, was Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year as a junior and All-Big Ten Second Team as a senior.
