Brooks, 25, has appeared in 74 games for the Rockets and Raptors since the start of the 2020/21 season, averaging 6.9 PPG and 2.3 RPG on .366/.330/.758 shooting. He was in camp with Atlanta last fall before being waived in October.
Although he hasn’t really shown it at the NBA level yet, Brooks is a solid outside shooter, having made 38.6% of his career three-pointers on 7.2 attempts per game in 86 G League contests. He also played well for the Nets’ Summer League team in Las Vegas this month, putting up 17.8 PPG on a scorching hot .500/.476/.875 shooting line.
Brooks and Jalen Wilson now occupy two of Brooklyn’s three two-way contract slots. RaiQuan Gray had also been on a two-way deal with the team, but was waived this afternoon, so the Nets still have one slot open.
