Aaron Brooks hit 5-of-11 shots and three 3-pointers off the Bulls bench on Tuesday, finishing with 18 points, two rebounds, three assists and three steals in 25 minutes of an overtime loss to the Pistons.
Brooks made some big strides tonight and may have surpassed Kirk Hinrich as the Bulls' backup point guard. He's probably not worth drafting in most leagues at this point, but if you want to handcuff him to Derrick Rose, it makes sense. He scored 15 of his points in the fourth quarter. Oct 8 - 12:42 AM

Aaron Brooks spoke with fellow Seattle natives Jamal Crawford and Nate Robinson about playing in Chicago.

This season will be Brooks' first with the Bulls. After spending the beginning of his career with Houston, Brooks is set to join his fifth team since the 2010 season. Strong March and April performances helped rejuvenate Brooks' NBA career, however, because of the Bulls' depth, it appears Brooks will have to battle with the likes of rookies Doug McDermott, Nikola Mirotic, and second-year man Tony Snell for what's left of the available minutes in Chicago.

Bulls sign G Aaron Brooks.

The deal had been reported last week and became official for the third-string point guard. "You never know what’s going to happen," Brooks said. "I enjoyed some success this past year when I got the opportunity to play. I think they just want me to come in, work hard, and help push everyone." He won't be worth drafting in almost any league.

The Bulls are finalizing a contract with Aaron Brooks.

He'll move into a role similar to D.J. Augustin's, who thrived in the Bulls' system last year and is now in Detroit. Brooks has some nice range from the outside, but would not likely see major minutes while the Bulls are healthy.
Jul 19 - 12:57 PM

The Bulls are reportedly considering bringing on unrestricted free agent Aaron Brooks.

Brooks would bring some instant-offense to the Bulls second unit, but with a healthy Derrick Rose, Brooks fantasy appeal would be severely limited. Brooks averaged 11.9 points, 5.2 assists, and 1.4 three-pointers a game with the Nuggets last season.

Aaron Brooks had 19 points, four rebounds, five assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in Tuesday's loss.

He's been great filling in for Ty Lawson and all indications are that he'll get serious minutes again in Wednesday's finale.
Apr 16 - 1:26 AM

Aaron Brooks hit just 3-of-13 shots for eight points, three rebounds, five assists, a steal and zero 3-pointers in Saturday's win over the Jazz.

Brooks has really cooled off recently, scoring no more than 13 points in four of his last five games. And the fact the Nuggets keep suggesting that Ty Lawson could return to finish out the season doesn't work in his favor. But any time that Lawson is out, Brooks is still a solid fantasy option.
Apr 13 - 12:39 AM

Aaron Brooks struggled with his shot against the Warriors on Thursday during a 100-99 win, shooting 3-of-14 from the field for eight points with two boards, seven assists, one steal and two turnovers.

His 3-point shot is not dropping right now, making just 4-of-20 (20.0 percent) in his last four games. Brooks has still played major minutes and has at least seven dimes in each of his last three games. Ty Lawson (ankle) is likely out for the year and Brooks should handle the point-guard duties the rest of the way.
Apr 11 - 1:46 AM

Aaron Brooks did not shoot the ball well vs. the Rockets on Wednesday during a 123-116 win, making 5-of-15 from the field for 13 points with five boards, seven assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

Even with the ugly shooting game, Brooks was still able to turn in a solid line thanks to the dimes, steals, block and trey. He is likely going to be the starter at point guard the rest of the way and he should have terrific value with the Nuggets playing in an up-tempo, small-ball offense these days.
Apr 10 - 12:33 AM

Aaron Brooks started at PG on Sunday with Ty Lawson (ankle) still unavailable, and he dominated the Rockets to finish with 24 points, eight rebounds, 15 assists and three steals in 47 minutes.

He committed seven turnovers which cost his team dearly down the stretch, but that's hard to hold against him. "[Our players have] all struggled against their ex-teams," coach Brian Shaw said light-heartedly before the game. "So we were looking forward to somebody having a good game against one of their ex-teams." Brooks checked that box and continues to provide a massive, unexpected boost for his lucky fantasy owners down the stretch.
Apr 6 - 10:09 PM

Aaron Brooks started in place of Ty Lawson on Friday, playing 40 minutes for 11 points, four boards, two assists and one 3-pointer.

Lawson was late to a meeting Friday morning and it didn't affect the rotation much, but he did suffer an ankle sprain in this game. Brooks was already doing plenty of damage on the stat sheet even before Lawson went down, so he's shaping up to be a must-own player in standard formats.
Apr 4 - 10:23 PM

Aaron Brooks will start in place of Ty Lawson on Friday night vs. the Grizzlies.

Lawson missed the start of a team meeting and will come off the bench. Coach Brian Shaw's rotation has been a mess to begin with, but Brooks has been a big part of it with Shaw using plenty of Lawson-Brooks combinations. He's put up terrific numbers lately and is a strong start in standard formats.
Apr 4 - 6:09 PM

Aaron Brooks scored 24 points vs. the Pelicans on Wednesday with three boards, one assist, two steals, two blocks and six 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

Coach Brian Shaw is in love with his small-ball lineup tonight and it worked to perfection in an up-tempo style. Brooks has played at least 28 minutes in each of the last five games, averaging 14.4 points, 4.2 assists, 0.8 steals and 2.6 triples in that span. It goes without saying, those are must-own numbers in standard-style formats. He's playing a lot like D.J. Augustin right now and is available in a lot of leagues.
Apr 3 - 1:22 AM

Aaron Brooks scored 10 points on 4-of-8 shooting with two threes, six assists and a steal in 29 minutes off the bench on Monday.

Brooks is rolling along as a low-end play in 12-team leagues and that's probably a good projection for the rest of the season.
Apr 1 - 2:20 AM

Aaron Brooks played 30 minutes against the Spurs on Friday with eight points, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

The Nuggets have really let loose some small lineups and coach Brian Shaw has run a lot of units with Brooks and Lawson together. Brooks has been above 28 minutes in three consecutive games and he could be above that total the rest of the way. He's worth a look in standard leagues.
