    C'mon, you know it's inevitable...........

    Seriously though, he could be a good enough fit and a value deal. Sounds like we've got no money left. If we could swap TJones for a better PG, great, but I don't see anything realistic.

    Add Brooks to this rotation, and he is instantly the best 3 point shooter (always hovers around 40%). Still quick enough to create better than Bev or the old dudes. Believe it or not, he even had decent defensive numbers last year, though that will never be a strong suit.

    If we can sign Stuckey for the vet minimum, great, but I don't see that happening. PLEASE don't bring that spaz Lin back. Let's just have Brooks come in and make a few clutch threes for us.

    I think unless they trade Taj or Noah the Bulls will want to resign him.

    See, why do we waste our time chasing after LMA when it puts us behind other teams in the Aaron Brooks sweepstakes?!!

    They never shouldda ditched him again...

    he fits this team perfectly now, and since the last time they traded him. A scoring PG off the bench who can create his own shot. The options are very limited right now and he would be a fantastic addition. He or Stuckey is who I want now

    We own him a ring for everything he did for us. Sign him for MLE to play back-up PG already!

    i wouldnt sign a non two way player for the MLE. Also he is undersized. If he wan't undersized then that would be a diffferent issue because he could play defense.

    I am all in for Brooks or Stuckey or a snt for Collison. I think snt for anyone helps we have too many players. 12 committed and we have signed mcDaniel or Harrell and we need another pg or 2.

    I didn't watch much of that series. That's actually surprising and disappointing. Still, Aaron wouldn't be competing with Dellavedova on the Rockets. The more relevant question is whether he is better than Terry and Prigs. I would think so.

    He'll come back for money. He likes Houston and it wasn't like we dumped him. He wanted to go to Denver. It was his choice. The only draw back is McHale doesn't seem to like him. If he is not going to play him and choose Terry over him then it's a waste.

    I wonder what Brooks can fetch now, I feel like he's stabilized him self enough to ask for a 5 mill per deal like CJ Waston.

    I didn't see the Rockets adding Brewer and Smith last year without losing a single rotation player. But Morey did it. I didn't see the James Harden trade. But Morey did it. I didn't see the Rockets stealing Dwight away from Los Angeles. But Morey did it.

    I've accepted that I can't see what Morey sees. Maybe you should too.

    vet minimum. He was quite bad in the playoffs. I watched all the bulls po games. He is last resort.
