Aaron Brooks to Play in China During NBA Lockout

The only NBA action we’ll be seeing for the next little while will be through the court system, so the players’ slow exodus to foreign basketball lands has begun anew. Aaron Brooks is the latest to bolt, reports Yahoo! Sports: “Under Chinese Basketball Association rules, Brooks, a restricted free agent for the Suns, is obligated to play the full season in China without an opt-out clause should the NBA lockout end. The league starts its schedule over the weekend and the regular season runs through the middle of February. Brooks will play with Washington Wizards free agent Yi Jianlian in Guangdong. The roster also includes Americans Fred Jones and Lester Hudson.”
