The Denver Nuggets were in need of a point guard earlier this season, so the team went out and acquired Aaron Brooks.
Unfortunately, the Nuggets playoff hopes were quickly dashed thereafter but Brooks continued his solid play in the Mile High city and appears open to a potential return, despite the Nuggets having both Nate Robinson and Ty Lawson.
The Nuggets have Ty Lawson entrenched as the starting point guard, while backup Nate Robinson is expected to return following a season-ending knee injury. Shaw prefers to have three point guards on the roster, so he would welcome the return of Brooks.
“Any place that has me, I’ll be happy,” Brooks said. “I like it here. It’s kind of jammed at the point guard spot, but I like it here. They have a good team coming back.”
Brooks isn’t going to break the bank in free agency, though there’s always a high demand for backup point guards so he’ll likely have his choice of suitors if he does opt to enter free agency rather than re-up with the Nuggets.
Denver doesn’t exactly need Brooks, per say, but he’ll become a tradeable asset if the team wanted to move him (or Nate Robinson) next season.
