Dillon Brooks is embarking on a new phase in his basketball career this season. After spending the first six minutes of his professional journey with the Memphis Grizzlies, he signed a four-year, $80 million contract with the Houston Rockets during the free agency period. Surprisingly, in just the fifth minute of his first preseason game against the Indiana Pacers, Brooks got himself ejected from the game for a foul that involved hitting another player below the belt.

It’s worth noting that Brooks had gained a reputation as one of the dirtiest players in the league during his time with the Grizzlies. Unfortunately, his aggressive playing style seems to have carried over into his new team just one game into this new chapter with the Houston Rockets.
To provide some context, Brooks, who is 27 years old, averaged 14.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 2.6 assists per game last season. His shooting percentages were 40 percent from the field and 33 percent from three-point range.
