The Rockets are hoping he can fit in the mix there off the bench.
Sacramento waived Aaron Brooks right before the March 1 deadline and now he has agreed to terms with Houston, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.
To answer your next question — yes, Brooks will be available on the Rockets playoff roster. (By the way, I’m thinking the Rockets against the Thunder or Clippers would be a lot of fun to watch in the first round, so I’m rooting for that.)
Brooks came off the bench for part of the 2011 season in Houston, averaging 11.6 points a game but on just 34.6 percent shooting. Which is not efficient for a shoot-first point guard. However, this is a very different Rockets team now, with James Harden and Jeremy Lin leading a more up-tempo attack. Brooks shot 45.9 percent overall and 37.8 percent from three for the Kings. If Brooks is knocking down threes at that rate he could be a valuable addition to the Rockets off the bench.
