HOUSTON – An NBA source confirmed to KPRC 2 Sports former Houston Cougars guard Armoni Brooks signed an Exhibit 10 deal with the Houston Rockets.

The contract allows the Rockets some roster flexibility and can be converted to either a two-way contract or a minimum NBA contract.

Brooks scored 11.2 points per game in 20 games last season, hitting 60 threes.

Brooks holds a very specific NBA record, hitting 47 threes over his first 17 games, breaking Damian Lillard’s rookie record of 43.
