Brooks Sales Bio

Brooks Sales is a 6'10" professional basketball player from Bloomfield, CT.  He has 12 years professional experience playing in the NBA and overseas.
 
Basketball was a natural part of growing up for Sales having an older sister, Nykesha, who would become a record holder and Hall of Famer for the UConn Huskies, as well as a WNBA All-Star.  With an already well-respected family name, Sales grew to become Northwest Catholic High School's leader in points, rebounds, and blocks.  Despite playing varsity for only three years, he led his team to become state champions, with a dynamic 31 points and 26 rebounds in the title game.  He was a three-time All-State player, two-time Connecticut Dream Dozen selection, and Gatorade Player of the Year.  He recorded over 1,400 points in his high school career.

In 1998, Sales accepted a full scholarship to Villanova University, where he was a
​4-year starter and team captain under coach Jay Wright.  He recorded 1,015 points and 858 rebounds as a college standout.  He was awarded the Harry Merrill Philadelphia Big Five Sportsmanship Award, and received The Villanova Basketball Award – the University's highest honor.  Alongside his basketball accolades, Sales earned a bachelor's degree in Communications with a specialization in Interpersonal Communication. 

Sales' professional career began with the Houston Rockets, with whom he traveled to China for the NBA preseason.  He parlayed his NBA experience into a successful career overseas, starting with team Biella in Italy.  In 12 years of professional basketball, Sales has been a go-to big man on teams in Italy, France, Israel, Turkey, Hungary, Spain, and most recently for the elite Al Wasl Sportsclub in Dubai.
 
Brooks Sales credits family support, dedication, personal strength, and education as important contributors to his continued success.
