Suns Pull Qualifying Offer To Aaron Brooks

SATURDAY, 5:38pm: According to a tweet by Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld, the Suns have officially withdrawn their qualifying offer to Brooks, making him an unrestricted free agent. 

3:10pm: Kennedy and Brooks have deleted their tweets, and Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle, reporting mutual interest between Brooks and the Rockets, refers to Brooks as a restricted free agent. So, it appears the issue has not yet been finalized.

2:04pm: Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld confirms the Suns have withdrawn the qualifying offer, making Brooks an unrestricted free agent (Twitter link).

FRIDAY, 10:45pm: It appears that the Suns have withdrawn their qualifying offer to Aaron Brooks after the guard sent out a tweet reading, "Unrestricted :-)."   If Phoenix has in fact pulled the qualifying offer from Brooks, he is now an unrestricted free agent.

The Suns extended a qualifying offer of $2.97MM to Brooks last week.  Since then, 2010's Most Improved Player has been linked to both the Mavericks and the Rockets

A return to Houston would mark a mulligan of sorts: Brooks was traded to the Suns in February of last year for Goran Dragic and a 2011 first-round pick.  Earlier this week, Dragic reached agreement on a four-year, $30MM deal with the Suns.  Dragic's arrival in Phoenix was assumed to be the end of Brooks' time there, but the revocation of the qualifying offer would make it a virtual certainty.

Off topic: I just saw a game of Russia and Nigeria and alexey shved is not a shooting guard, he’s a big point guard. That guy
Knows how to distribute the ball. He doesn’t have an NBA body but he is big so he might be able to balk up.
