Dillon Brooks is probably the most controversial player in today’s NBA. Brooks completely embodies the ‘love to have him on your team, hate to play against him’ personality. Playing for the Memphis Grizzlies for the past several seasons, Brooks has used his tenacious defense and his never-give-up attitude as his calling card and has made a name for himself in this league.


Dillion Brooks is the rare type of player that prides himself on his defense. In his words ‘I respect no one until they come and give me 40’. While many players in today’s NBA don’t acknowledge it publicly, they know what Brooks represents - a professional ball hound and a pest on the defensive hound that is annoying to go up against.


And that is why, even though the Grizzlies announced just days after their elimination to the Los Angeles Lakers that they have no intention of bringing him back, Brooks still has a large market and has tons of teams that would be interested in what he brings to the table. Being an unrestricted free agent in the 2023 offseason, Brooks signed with the Houston Rockets on a 4-year, 80 million dollar deal. Let’s look into the contract in more detail to see how much Dillon Brooks will make.
