The Houston Rockets aren’t a team that is usually quiet at the trade deadline and despite not being able to move Omer Asik like they wanted to earlier in the year, the Rockets still made a trade with just an hour to spare in the trade season.
Houston dealt guard Aaron Brooks to the Denver Nuggets in exchange for Jordan Hamilton. The deal is a total win-win for both teams as each fills a need they were looking to take care of before the deadline passed. Denver has been active on Thursday and their latest trade brought out more fans on Twitter to react their wheeling and dealing.
Aaron Brooks was drafted by the Rockets and has now been traded by, re-signed, waived, re-signed and traded again by the Rockets.

Aaron Brooks is perfect for the Nuggets because he’s fast and has no idea what he’s doing.

Aaron Brooks could have some value in Denver depending on how long Ty Lawson remains out. Could even retain a bit thereafter.

So much for the Beno Udrih trade. That’s off the table as Denver has traded Jordan Hamilton to Houston for Aaron Brooks

Aaron Brooks trended. For a moment thought, “40-year-old QB makes comeback?” Wrong guy, alas …

Aaron Brooks must hate the Rockets they always give him away lol

It feels like the Rockets trade Aaron Brooks at the deadline, pick him back up in the offseason, and trade him at the deadline. Every year

Thank god #Rockets fans can now put the “Aaron Brooks should be the starting point guard” arguments to rest…
