The Memphis Grizzlies have agreed to a three-year, $35-million contract extension with Canadian guard Dillon Brooks, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Brooks has enjoyed a breakout season in 2019-20, averaging 16.1 points per game over 50 contests. His success has helped the young Grizzlies make a surprising playoff push, as the team currently occupies the eighth seed in the Western Conference.

The Mississauga, Ont., native starred for the Oregon Ducks before being drafted by the Houston Rockets 45th overall in 2017.

Earlier Wednesday, Memphis agreed to trade veteran Andre Iguodala to the Miami Heat, which was music to Brooks’s ears. The 24-year-old has not shied away from criticizing the former NBA Finals MVP.

“Now we have a player that we’re getting that actually wants to play with us and thinks we’re good,” Brooks said.
