Aaron Brooks, Kings Agree To 2-Year Deal

The point-guard pool in the 2012 NBA free agency period is drying up, leaving teams looking for second or third options in the wake of Steve Nash, Jeremy Lin, and Raymond Felton all finding homes. Aaron Brooks has his, in Sacramento, according to SI.com's Sam Amick and Brooks himself on Twitter.

Amick reports that the deal is for two years and has an average annual value of $3.3 million per season.

Brooks seemed like one of the more competent young point guards in the league entering the 2010-11 NBA season, having come off a 2009-10 campaign with the Houston Rockets that featured him shooting nearly 40 percent from three-point range and filling the cup to the tune of 19.6 points per game. But Brooks' 2010-11 was split between Houston and Phoenix — he wasn't particularly successful in either city, shooting 37.5 percent from the field over his 59 games — and he spent the 2011-12 season playing in China.

Brooks gives the Kings perhaps the closest thing to a pure point guard on a roster rife with scoring guards — and even he's never averaged more than 5.3 assists per game in his career.
