AX Armani Exchange Milan and power forward Jeff Brooks have reached an agreement that will keep the sides together for another season. Brooks (2.03 meters, 31 years old) averaged 4.3 points and 4.6 rebounds in 19 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague games with Milan last season. It was his second with the club, which he joined from Unicaja Malaga. Brooks helped Unicaja win the 2017 7DAYS EuroCup. He previously competed in Europe's premier competition with Italian sides Mapooro Cantu and Dinamo Banco di Sardegna Sassari, as well as with Unicaja. Brooks has also played in Italy for Jesi and JuveCaserta and in Russia for Avtodor Saratov. He has won five titles in Italy - the Italian SuperCup, Italian Cup and Italian League in 2014-15 with Sassari, the Italian SuperCup with Cantu in 2012 and with Milan in 2019.
"I want to say that I'm very happy to be back with Olimpia, to have a chance to continue to build the chemistry with some of the guys I have already played with for one or two years and to build a new chemistry with the new players coming in," Brooks said. "I’m happy to get a chance to work with Coach Messina and all of his staff for another year. I’m just excited to be back and compete with this club once more! Good things are in our future at Olimpia!"
