Rockets Re-Sign Armoni Brooks
Posted: August 27, 2021 -- 5:45 p.m.
Friday, the Houston Rockets announced they have re-signed free agent guard Armoni Brooks.
Brooks signed an Exhibit 10 deal with the Rockets. An Exhibit 10 deal is, essentially, a one-year, non-guaranteed minimum contracts with built-in clauses enabling NBA teams to convert them to two-way contracts so long as the conversion takes place prior to the beginning of the regular season. Otherwise, players on Exhibit 10 deals become non-guaranteed minimum deals. Exhibit 10 deals also feature bonuses of between $5,000 and $50,000 that kick in if the player is waived and they report to the team's G League affiliate for at least 60 days.
Per NBA rules for the 2021-22 season, a player under a two-way contract will be permitted to be on the NBA team's active list for no more than 50 games during the regular season, with no limit on practices, workouts or other activities with the NBA team.
