I am shocked that the Sacramento Kings released veteran guard Aaron Brooks today. Shocked and bummed. Nothing that the Kings do makes ANY sense to me. I liked Brooks. He was usually the replacement guard for Isaiah Thomas, often the 6th man for the team. Brooks even started many games for the season during a period where Thomas was benched. It has always been a mystery to me while Thomas is lauded with all the hype and Brooks seemingly ignored. I always admired Brooks’ ability to pass the ball effectively and he had to be one of the assist leaders on the squad. So his departure is odd and discomforting.
If the Kings want to release some people, they should start with their perpetually immature center, DeMarcus Cousins and their hapless coach, Keith Smart.
