Rockets will use Brooks' option Team will lock up guard through 2010-11


Rockets will use Brooks' option Team will lock up guard through 2010-11 Though he said there is "of course" no decision to be made, Rockets general manager Daryl Morey said he will stick with his policy to wait until the deadline before the start of the regular season to pick up the option on the fourth season of starting point guard Aaron Brooks' contract.

"It is a no-brainer, of course," Morey said. "Aaron is an emerging point guard who has a bright future.

"He showed great poise and production when he became the starter last year.

"We of course expect him to be a Rocket for a long time."

A 2007 first-round pick, Brooks, 24, is still on his original rookie contract, giving the Rockets the right to extend his contract for the 2010-11 season for $2,016,692.

The Rockets have picked up every possible option on every rookie-scale contract since the NBA went to its current system for first-round picks.
