Kings to add Aaron Brooks

Aaron Brooks is on his way to Sacramento.

The point guard tweeted "Sacramento Kings" in the last hour. The deal is agreed upon and expected to be worth around $3 million this season and a two-year deal.

The Kings would have 15 players under contract with Brooks. Of those players, Hassan Whiteside does not have a guaranteed deal.

If the Kings look to keep an open roster spot, Whiteside could be in trouble and a candidate to be released.

Brooks (6-0, 161) was the NBA's Most Improved Player for the 2009-10 season for the Houston Rockets when he posted career highs of 19.6 points and 5.3 assists.

Brooks was dealt to Phoenix the following season. Brooks played in China last season instead of waiting for the NBA lockout to end.

Brooks has been thought highly of by the Kings for some time. He was a first-round pick of the Rockets in 2007 and often linked to the Kings in trade talks.

Brooks can score and is also a career 36.3 percent shooter from the three-point line. Brooks, 27, averages 12.5 points for his career.
