Scouting Report: Aaron Brooks

The Houston Rockets have a crowded backcourt currently with Rafer Alston, Steve Francis, Luther Head, Mike James, and Aaron Brooks fighting for playing time. After drafting Brooks on draft night, it was surprising that the Rockets chose to add Francis and James. However, Rick Adelman has made it known that he believes in Brooks in the long run. It appears that this season, Brooks will not see the floor much, but in the future he could play a big role in the Rockets franchise.
