Memphis Grizzlies May Let Dillon Brooks Go As Doubts Arise About Contract Extension

NBA reporter Marc Stein has raised doubts about the Memphis Grizzlies' desire to re-sign Dillon Brooks, who is heading to free agency.

Brooks has played six seasons with the Grizzlies, becoming a solid secondary scoring option and averaging a career-best 18.4 points per game last season.

However, during the 2022-23 campaign, his points per game dropped to 14.3, and his field-goal percentage decreased from 43.2 to 39.6, raising concerns about his efficiency.

Brooks is known for his trash-talking and agitator behavior on the court, particularly during the playoffs when he went back and forth with LeBron James.

However, his comments afterwards and his flagrant-2 foul that got him ejected from the game led to distractions and a fine of $25,000 from the NBA.

General manager Zach Kleiman did not seem eager to bring back the 27-year-old, stating that the team would take a different approach next season and that he would hit on Dillon another day.

As such, it seems that Brooks' time with the Grizzlies may come to an end this offseason, with his potential value to the team weighed against concerns about his efficiency and distractions on the court.

It remains to be seen where Brooks will land next and what impact he will have on his new team.
