Aaron Brooks Reportedly Signs To Play In China

The latest NBA lockout news is probably going to make players a bit less hesitant to sign a contract overseas considering things like NBA-out clauses aren't a necessity if the league is indeed looking ahead to a "nuclear winter." If anything, it looks like it may have nudged Aaron Brooks a bit harder to look at that possibility consider the Phoenix Suns guard has decided to sign in China.

Brooks has reached an agreement to play for the Guangdong Southern Tigers, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. Brooks should be a popular player in China because of his time on the Houston Rockets with Yao Ming, as Wojnarowski points out. 

Dongguang will also feature former NBA player James Singleton as well as fellow locked out NBAer Yi Jianlian. While Jianlian will be free to return to the NBA once the lockout ends, all of the American imports have been told that they must remain in China until the season ends.

The Chinese league's regular season will begin this weekend with Brooks' new team slated to play a team that will showcase the Denver Nuggets' J.R. Smith and former first round pick Josh Boone.
