The Rockets are in between a rock and a hard place when it comes to Aaron Brooks. He doesn't seem happy, they probably don't want to re-sign him after this season and they could get something in exchange for him at the trade deadline. Having said all that, they still need him to be successful.
All of this unpleasantness with Brooks recently has overshadowed the fact that he is an important part of their success, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.
"He's got to get them involved," Adelman said. "He hasn't shot the ball well from the 3 or from the floor. There's so many more things he can do than just shoot the ball.
"We have to get him on track. He's really important to our success."
In his first game back from the one game suspension last night, Brooks finished 1-8 from the field and managed to record just one assist. Not exactly what a team is hoping for from their point guard.
Brooks made his name by shooting the ball. That will always be his greatest strength. But if he wants to succeed as a point guard on the Rockets, he needs to do what point guards do; pass the ball. Aaron Brooks is in a difficult situation with the Rockets, but they need his production more than they need the value he can bring in a trade.
