Professional Career

After Marquette, Boone was selected in the fourth round of the 1987 NBA Draft - the 77th overall pick - by the Denver Nuggets. He was selected before future NBAers Jack Haley (4th/UCLA), Dave Popson (4th/UNC), Ronnie Grandison (5th) and Sarunas Marciulionis (6th).

He was an inaugural member of the Calgary 88's in the World Basketball League. His 88's reached the league finals three times.

He led the WBL in rebounding in 1988 with a 9.8 rpg average.
