Report: Dillon Brooks agrees to three-year, $35 million extension with Memphis Grizzlies

The Memphis Grizzlies are rewarding Dillon Brooks for his breakout season.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Grizzlies have agreed to a three-year, $35 million extension with the Mississauga native.

This season is the final year on Brooks' existing contract.

Brooks is averaging 16.1 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game this season, all of which are career-highs. He's shooting 42.4 percent from the field and 39.9 percent from 3-point range, the latter of which is a career-high.

Brooks has scored 20 or more points in 18 games this season. Memphis is 17-1 in those games, their lone loss coming against the New Orleans Pelicans.

Brooks has been with the Grizzlies since 2017-18, when they selected him with the No. 45 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. He had a strong rookie season, starting in 74 of the 82 games he appeared in, but injuries limited him to only 18 games last season.

"I got to watch the game when I was hurt last season," Brooks told our Carlan Gay in November. "I got to really watch the game. I feel like my first two years were two total different years - where I got to play a lot and then my second year I didn't get to play a lot.

"When I got injured, I got a chance to watch players play - how things go, how to carry yourself in the NBA. I transitioned that into the summer by working on my game, getting ready because of all the moves that we made.

"All the expectations for me - trying to get back to the way I was playing my first year."

At 26-25, the Grizzlies currently have the eighth-best record in the Western Conference.
