Dylan Brooks (guard-forward, 201cm, 102kg) is getting attention.
Brooks, whose contract with the Memphis Grizzlies is expiring, deserves attention in the transfer market, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.
Brooks’ㅋㅋㅋ벳 contract with Memphis expired at the end of the season. He brightened his prospects in this playoff as he finished second in the Western Conference with a record of 51 wins and 31 losses in the regular season. However, a loss to the Los Angeles Lakers in the first round ended the season prematurely.
Ultimately, Memphis decided not to stick with Brooks after the season. Memphis hoped to sign an extension with Brooks prior to this season, but the difference in opinions was significant. It was also reported that Brooks wanted a large contract worth $25 million per year. You can want to. However, his performance this season has been quite underwhelming.
Brooks has appeared in 73 games this season. He recorded 14.3 points (.396 .326 .779), 3.3 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 30.3 minutes per game. Previously, he could not play in many games due to injury, but this time, he played more than 70 games and calmed his concerns about his durability. However, his overall performance was not outstanding. His 3-point shooting success rate has also been on a clear decline lately.
Above all, Memphis has not been able to operate at full power throughout the season due to injuries to key players throughout this season. Jaren Jackson Jr. and Desmond Bain were injured at the start of the season, while Steven Adams and Brandon Clark were sidelined by injuries during the season. Later in the season, Ja Morant was also disciplined for unnecessary behavior.
Nevertheless, Brooks’ performance did not stand out much. He has a lot to contribute on defense, and there have been times when his performances have not been shown in his overall record. However, his performance this season fell far short of expectations, and he put the brakes on the team’s upward trend in the playoffs. He was also suspended for one game in the last playoff, and he was ejected during the game again.
Memphis is expected to find a new forward in the transfer market. Brooks can sign a contract with another club because he is a free agent. A team that wants to strengthen its perimeter defense deserves a jump in the fight to recruit Brooks. It is expected that his ransom will be formed based on his annual salary ($11.4 million) this season. However, it remains to be seen which club will be interested in it.
