05:10 PM ET 03.05 | The contract that Aaron Brooks signed with the Rockets on Monday also comes with a $2.5 million team option for next season, a sign that Houston may want to keep the 28-year old PG around for the long haul. Brooks, who won the Most Improved Player Award in his previous stint with the Rockets, spent last season in China before returning to the NBA with the Kings this season. However, he didn't really fit with the young guards Sacramento already had on their roster, so he reached a buyout with the team last week. Brooks, still one of the fastest point guards in the league, averaged eight points and two assists on 46 percent shooting for the Kings. He'll be expected to provide scoring punch off the Rockets bench as well as be an additional ball-handler, although how Kevin McHale will divvy up the minutes behind Jeremy Lin and James Harden is still unclear.

Will it be better the second time around? I hope he can regain his game.

Why has Brooks bounced around so much? He seems like a good player.
