Knicks Interested in Trading for Pistons' Brandon Jennings

The Knicks need a quality point guard, and the Pistons have too many.

The Detroit Pistons traded for Reggie Jackson and re-signed him to a five-year, $80 million deal last season, and with Brandon Jennings headed for free agency, New York Daily News' Frank Isola is reporting that the Knicks may have some interest.

And that’s where Jennings re-enters the picture. The Knicks, according to a source, have interest in several point guards including Jennings, who finally returned to the lineup after rupturing his left Achilles tendon nearly 11 months ago. That’s a red flag right there. Jennings went 2-for-4 with seven points and four assists in 17 minutes in his season debut.

Of course, the trading deadline is two months away, which gives Jennings plenty of time to prove he can still be a starting-caliber point guard. “Oh yeah, I don’t think there is any doubt,” said Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy. “Brandon is coming back well off of the injury and he’s a guy who just absolutely loves to play, loves to be in the gym. He’s still young, he’s still 26. I don’t think there’s any doubt he’ll be a starting point guard in this league again.”

With Jennings headed towards free agency and the Knicks without a first round pick, this is a marriage made to happen.
