It is no secret that the backcourt in Sacramento is crowded. Having plenty of players who are able to handle the point guard duties, the Sacramento Kings might be working on a buyout with Aaron Brooks.
Jason Jones of Sacramento Bee tweeted the following:
While none of this is official just yet, it doesn’t prevent us from speculating what Brooks’ next destination would be if he indeed takes the buyout.
Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld pointed out two potential destinations for the 28-year-old on his Twitter – New York Knicks and Houston Rockets.
Both destinations would certainly make sense. While the Knicks love what Raymond Felton brings to the table, and Jason Kidd is also able to handle the point guard duties, Felton has been injured a couple of times this season. If Felton’s durability continues to be of concern, it would definitely make sense for the Knicks to add the experienced guard to their ranks.
Houston Rockets would also be a decent fit for Brooks, who would provide a solid backup option for Jeremy Lin. Brooks spent three-and-a-half seasons with the Rockets earlier in his career. He also had the best season of his career with the Rockets in 2009-10, in which he started every single game and average 19.6 points and 5.3 assists.
