Brooks helped guide the Ducks to the 2017 Final Four and is regarded as one of the school’s best ever players. He was selected with the 45th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft by the Houston Rockets. His rights were immediately traded to the Grizzlies.
Brooks had a very solid summer league for the Grizzlies, averaging 12.2 points (on 47 percent shooting), 3.7 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.5 steals per game.
