Kevin Brooks (born October 12, 1969) is a retired American professional basketball player. He is a graduate of White Castle High School in White Castle, Louisiana, and graduated from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, then named the University of Southwestern Louisiana. Brooks is currently the Assistant Coach of the Adelaide 36ers in the Australasian based National Basketball League (NBL).



Brooks was drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks in the 1st round as the 18th pick of the 1991 NBA Draft. Traded to the Denver Nuggets, he played 126 games in three seasons from 1991–1994 averaging 3.3 points, 1.1 rebounds and 0.4 assists per game.


Brooks moved to Australia with former Nuggets team mate Darnell Mee to play with the NBL's Adelaide 36ers for two seasons in the late 1990s, where he and his teammates went on to win back-to-back championships in 1998 and 1999. Brooks was named the NBL Grand Final MVP in 1998 and made the All-NBL First Team in 1999. Brooks averaged 18.8 points, 6.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 98 games with the 36ers (1998, 1998–99 and 2000–01 NBL seasons).

In 1999–2000, the NBL refused to let Adelaide register Brooks as it was believed doing so would put the 36ers over the leagues salary cap. Instead Brooks played for the Sydney Kings. While he impressed for the Kings under the coaching of Brett Brown, Brooks never seemed settled and at the end of the season returned to the 36ers for 2000-01. After the team reached the Semi-finals, Brooks was off to Södertälje BBK in Sweden for a season before returning down under, this time to New Zealand when he joined the Wellington Saints for 2002.

Brooks then moved to back to the NBL and the Hunter Pirates in 2003. In his international career, Brooks has competed in France, Argentina, Brazil, Australia, Sweden & New Zealand.[1]

Brooks started his managerial career as head coach of the Australian Basketball Association Woodville Warriors in Adelaide where in his inaugural year, led the Warriors to the 2005 ABA championship. In June 2005 he joined the Stamford Grand Basketball Academy in Adelaide, South Australia as first an assistant coach and then head coach the following season, training a future player-base for the 36ers.

Shortly thereafter, Brooks accepted the position of 2nd assistant coach with his former team, the Adelaide 36ers in the Australian National Basketball League. The following season he became the 1st assistant coach with the Wollongong Hawks for the next two years. He was also the head coach of his former New Zealand team the Wellington Saints in 2007.

Brooks is currently the Executive Producer and Analyst of a weekly live, internet basketball show on Australia Live TV entitled, Inside the Game,[2] as well as assistant coach for the Pembroke School (Adelaide) basketball teams.

On 21 May 2013, Brooks signed with the Adelaide 36ers as one of the 2013–14 assistant coaches to new head coach Joey Wright, returning for his second assistant coaching stint with the club.[3] Under Wright, the 36ers went from the bottom of the league in 2012–13, to Grand Finalists in 2013–14.
