Aaron Jamal Brooks (born January 14, 1985) is an American professional basketball player who last played for the Minnesota Timberwolves of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He was selected 26th overall in the 2007 NBA draft. He won the NBA Most Improved Player Award for the 2009–10 season.
Brooks, a high-profile recruit out of Franklin High School in Seattle, "earned just about every honor possible" while leading his team to the Washington 4A State Championship as a senior. As a high school senior he averaged 24.3 points, 7.0 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 2.3 steals per game. In that championship game, Brooks went head-to-head with future Gonzaga Bulldog and NBA player Adam Morrison. Brooks finished with 38 points in the 67-55 win. Morrison finished with 37 in the loss but was still named Tournament MVP after matching the then four-game scoring total.
Considered a four-star recruit by 247Sports.com, Brooks was listed as the No. 4 point guard and the No. 30 player in the nation in 2003.
