Brooks was praised by head coach Stephen Silas for his performance. Many fans of the team are cheering for him, but perhaps his best support comes from his girlfriend, whose support he shared in an Instagram story.

Brooks Scores Career High Against Phoenix Suns

Brooks scored his career-high against the Phoenix Suns, scoring 14 points in just 14 minutes. Known for his strong shooting skills in the G League, Brooks showcased his ability, connecting on 4 of the 5 shots he attempted from the 3-point range.

As veteran guards Sterling Brown and DJ Augustin were both unavailable because of their sore left knee and sprained left ankle respectively, Brooks made most of his appearance, showcasing what he could contribute to the team.

Head coach Stephen Silas praised Brooks for his performance, “That was awesome to see. We had him in the fourth quarter of a tight game, and he was stepping up and making shots. That was great. It was really cool to see.”

Brooks too expressed his thoughts on his performance and what it meant to him and his team.

Being able to get out there and show them that I’m capable of playing at this level, and at least producing some… it’s a great motivation. It’s going to keep me going, and it’s going to build confidence, both for myself and my teammates.

Brooks Was Headed For New Zealand Just Before Signing With Houston Rockets

Brooks joined the Rockets on April 3, 2021, and has already shown us what he is capable of. But he was just moments away from not being with the Rockets.

Brooks opened up about the moment he got the news of his signing to Mark Berman, the sports director at Fox 26 (KRIV). He was at the airport, on his way to New Zealand to play in a pro league. At that moment, he got a phone call and received news that he had been signed to a two-way contract.

Rockets Wire reported that Brooks would be effectively replacing Ben McLemore as the designated sharpshooter off the bench.

From Houston Cougars To Houston Rockets

Brooks had a brilliant start to his NBA career, but it wasn’t always smooth sailing for him. During his high school days at Round Rock McNeil, he was a great shooter but wasn’t considered to be a star player in the making.

Big programs showed little interest in recruiting him, but Brooks was happy with the few offers he received. He attended Houston University and called it the best decision he ever made back in 2019.

Soon, Brooks grew to be Houston Cougars’ best player and was declared for the 2019 NBA draft. Unfortunately, he went undrafted and played with Washington Wizards and Atlanta Hawks before being selected by the Rio Grande Valley Vipers in the first round of NBA G League draft in January 2021.

Three months later, Brooks signed with the Houston Rockets, the Viper’s NBA affiliate.
