NBA Trades: How Will Aaron Brooks Fit on the Phoenix Suns?

The Suns have just acquired the 2009-2010 NBA’s Most Improved Player Award winner, Aaron Brooks. Although, Suns fans do not seem totally convinced that this is a good deal quite yet.

To get Brooks, the Suns had to send away young point guard Goran Dragic and a protected first round pick. Even though Dragic has been disappointing this season, fans are still worried that the front office has made a bad move.

Dragic was supposed to be the point guard of the future, but it looks like management has decided to go another direction.

This trade could mean two things: Either the Suns are planning on trading Nash in the offseason and starting over, or they are planning on signing a player (Zach Randolph?) in the offseason to build a new team around Nash.

Regardless, I believe the Suns have made a phenomenal trade. Brooks is only 26 years old and in his fourth season in the NBA. He has a golden opportunity to learn from Steve Nash and has the talent to be a great player in this league.

The following slides are 10 reasons why Aaron Brooks is a perfect fit with the Suns.
