Brooks signed a two-year, $6.6 million contract with the Kings over the summer. He's averaged eight points in just 21 minutes a game this season. The Kings have given increasing minutes to young guards Isaiah Thomas and Jimmer Fredette.

Brooks had his best season in the NBA with the Rockets three years ago, averaging 19 points and five assists per game.
