Aaron Brooks was a puzzling pick in the first round for the Rockets as they already have two point guards ahead of him in Mike James and Rafer Alston. Brooks is a little on the small side at 6′0″, 160 pounds but he’s a tough guy and he proved that in the Pac 10 at Oregon. Brooks played in 115 games at Oregon and he averaged 13.1 points, 3.5 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 1.1 steals per game. Brooks also was a good shooter at Oregon as he hit 43% of his shots from the floor, 37.4% from the three point line and 83.4% from the free throw line. Brooks will likely have a hard time getting playing time as a rookie.
