Aaron Brooks Considering Contract In China, According To Report

Aaron Brooks, like most Houston Rockets that played with Yao Ming during his time in the NBA, is kind of a big deal in China. With the NBA lockout currently in place, Brooks is reportedly considering contract offers to play in the best NBA market outside of America.

Brooks spent his first four seasons in the NBA with the Rockets before being traded to the Phoenix Suns midway through this past season, and while earlier this week he said he hoped to stay in Phoenix, he's also considering a deal to play with a team in China according to Hoopsworld.

Brooks has a qualifying offer of just under $3 million from the Suns that they would have to pay him to re-sign him, putting him in a sort of free agent limbo along the lines of Josh Childress a few seasons when he instead left the NBA to play in Greece.

It isn't surprising that Brooks would consider Chinese offers, especially considering Hoopsworld is also reporting he has a couple of endorsement deals in Asia, but odds are he'd be taking about a $2 million paycut to do play in Asia.
