Aaron Brooks expected to return to the Rockets

In yet another strange turn of events, former Rockets point guard Aaron Brooks is expected to return to Houston.

Aaron Brooks isn't done with the Houston Rockets. After losing his starting spot to Kyle Lowry following a brutal ankle injury during the 2010/2011 season, Brooks was traded to the Phoenix Suns for Goran Dragic. Brooks produced at a mediocre level in Phoenix behind Steve Nash and spent the shortened 2011/2012 season playing in the Chinese league. The Kings signed Brooks to a three year deal last summer but have since decided to part ways with the veteran scorer out of Oregon.

While talks are still in progress, Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Rockets are favored to land their former most improved player:

The Rockets have a capable back up in Patrick Beverly but it remains to be seen if Beverly is a long term solution. Jonathan Feigan added that Brooks has been aiming for a return to Houston for months:

I love Aaron Brooks off the bench for today's Houston Rockets. While he is not much of a playmaker or defender, Brooks is an able scorer who isn't afraid to take big shots and could be a valuable closer.

Brooks began this season as the starting point guard for the Sacramento Kings (8 points per game and 2.3 assists in 20 minutes on the season) but has since been replaced by Isiah Thomas. Earlier today the Kings and Aaron Brooks agreed to a buyout.
