Brooks agreed to an Exhibit 10 contract with the Rockets on Friday, Sam Amico of HoopsWire.com reports. Brooks will attempt to make the team with a good showing at training camp. He appeared in 20 games for the Rockets last season down the stretch and averaged 11.2 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 26.0 minutes.
Brooks is no longer in the league's health and safety protocols, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. Brooks has yet to play in the Summer League as he's been stuck in the NBA's health and safety protocols. The guard is expected to see limited minutes in Sunday's Summer League game against the Magic. Brooks will look to finish out his team's last two Summer League games on a high note after missing his team's first three games. The 23-year-old will hope to build on what was an exceptional rookie season.
Brooks recorded 18 points (6-19 FG, 6-18 3Pt), four rebounds and two steals in Sunday's 124-95 loss to the Hawks. Brooks has been a dominant scorer for the Rockets recently, averaging 18.4 points per game in the past seven games. The 22-year-old is pretty reliant on the three-point shot as 18 of his 19 shots attempted came from behind the arc. With the season now over, it seems likely that Brooks will stay with the team going into next season.
Brooks scored 24 points (9-18 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 2-3 FT) and grabbed six rebounds across 37 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Lakers. The rookie came off the bench in the contest but tied for the team lead in points, treys and minutes. Brooks finished with double-digit points for the fifth straight game, and he has knocked down at least three three-pointers in each of those contests. Over that five-game span, he's averaged 19.2 points and 4.8 triples while shooting 48 percent from beyond the arc.
Brooks tallied 18 points (6-9 FG, 6-9 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and one block in 24 minutes Monday in the Rockets' 140-129 loss to the Trail Blazers. Since joining the Rockets a month ago on a two-way deal, Brooks has quietly emerged as an elite source of three-point production. According to Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston, Brooks' 44 three-pointers are an NBA record for a player's first 17 games of his career, breaking the mark previously set by Damian Lillard in 2012-13. With the 16-53 Rockets firmly in evaluation mode for their final three games of the season, the 22-year-old Brooks should have ample opportunity to fire away from distance the rest of the way.
