Brandon Jennings could be traded before the trade deadline, and if not, he hopes a team can overpay for him during the summer and that the Milwaukee Bucks don’t match it.
Chad Ford of ESPN has the report:
Jennings isn’t bluffing. He recently changed agents in an attempt to get some traction on his relocation. Jennings’ marching orders for his new representation? Get him out of Milwaukee, either by the trade deadline or via a toxic offer sheet from another team this summer.
Ford also says the Orlando Magic, Atlanta Hawks and the Dallas Mavericks are interested in the star point guard if he indeed gets traded.
ESPN’s Marc Stein had this to say as well:
Jennings wanted to stay with the Bucks, the team that drafted him in 2009 with the 10th overall pick, but was frustrated when they couldn’t agree on a extension, which now makes him a restricted free agent after the season.
The 23-year-old is in his 4th season in the NBA, and has been averaging 18.5 points and 6.1 assists this season.
