The Rockets and 6-foot-3 guard Armoni Brooks reached agreement Friday on an Exhibit 10 contract, per Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle. The new deal will allow the second-year sharpshooter to report to training camp with the team when it begins in late September.

“Brooks had long been considered likely to be with the Rockets at camp given their appreciation for his play and growth last season and his belief that he could continue to improve and carve out a niche with the Rockets,” Feigen writes.

NBA teams can bring up to 20 players to training camp, but they can only carry a maximum of 15 players under standard contracts. Assuming those slots are filled — and they are in Houston, at the moment — that leaves room for up to five players on training camp deals (i.e. Exhibit 10) or two-way contracts. Brooks joins second-year forward Tyler Bey and rookie guard Daishen Nix as Houston’s three Exhibit 10 signings, while Houston has rookie forward Matthew Hurt signed to a two-way deal.

According to Feigen, Brooks is among the players under consideration for a final roster spot or to play with another two-way contract, as he did last season. While the Rockets do have 15 players under standard deals, the contract for Khyri Thomas is non-guaranteed, which could leave an opening for a regular contract if Brooks plays well enough in camp.

Now 23 years old, Brooks averaged 11.2 points (38.2% on 3-pointers) and 3.4 rebounds last season in 26.0 minutes. In his rookie year after going undrafted out of college, Brooks set a record for the most made 3-pointers (60) over the first 20 games of any NBA player’s career.
