After a wild 24 hours or so of maneuverings by the Grizzlies and the NBA in general (seriously it's insane) they take care of one of their own.
Brooks has been very good at shooting guard for the resurgent Memphis Grizzlies this season, averaging over 16 points, three rebounds and two assists per game while playing a shade over 28 minutes per game with a 39% shooting percentage on threes.
He’s the Grizzlies’ third leading scorer behind rookie sensation Ja Morant and future star Jaren Jackson, Jr.
Brooks was most notably in the news recently for calling out a since traded (to Miami) Andre Igoudala, stating as follows:

Bold words from a young player who has started consistently for the first time in his career this season.
He is currently making $1.6 million this season and was scheduled to make a little over $2 million next season, according to spotrac.com.
Memphis has retooled their roster very successfully on the fly around their two young stars and have a lot of flexibility in a constantly top heavy Western conference.
