BROOKLYN - The rumor mill is spinning about the possible trade of Brooklyn Nets' Marshon Brooks.

The guard has been widely discussed as a trade piece in the quest to bring Dwight Howard to the borough. Brooks, who's playing in the Nets summer league, says he has no choice but to ignore the talk.

Brooks averaged more than 12 points per game during his rookie season last year and is considered one of the better young players in the NBA.
