Houston Rockets agree to terms with Aaron Brooks

Jeff Gross

Aaron Brooks will reportedly return to the Rockets. What does this mean?

After a few days of speculation, it appears that a deal to bring Aaron Brooks to Houston has been agreed upon. Jonathan Feigen first reported that a deal was "close," and Adrian Wojnarowski had the scoop on the agreed upon deal.

Brooks, as you might remember, took over the starting point guard spot in 2009 after Daryl Morey traded Rafer Alston for Kyle Lowry, and nearly propelled the Rockets past the Lakers in the second round. In the 2009-2010 season, Brooks averaged 19.6 points and 5.3 assists per game, leading the team in both categories.

From there, he had a bit of a fall from grace. An injury-riddled 2010-11 year saw Brooks pushed out of the starting lineup and sent packing to Phoenix. He went to China and then the Kings, before being waived earlier this week. Now, with the Rockets, Brooks will have to fight for minutes, but could be a sparkplug scorer off the bench. He still has unlimited range, dangerous quickness, and a tremendous handle.
