Source: Jennings Has 'Irreconcilable Differences' With Bucks

Source: Brandon Jennings Has 'Irreconcilable Differences' With Bucks And Wants To Play For A Bigger Market

Image

Brandon Jennings has "irreconcilable differences" with the Milwaukee Bucks, according to one source.

Jennings is frustrated that he was unable to come to terms with the Bucks on a long-term extension, according to sources.

Jennings is also interested in playing in a bigger market.

The Bucks would be able to match any offer sheet Jennings signs this offseason should they not trade him.

Jennings recently changed agents and either wants to be traded before the deadline, or to sign an offer sheet with a rival team in the summer that is difficult for the Bucks to match.

The Dallas Mavericks, Orlando Magic and Atlanta Hawks are viewed as the three most likely destinations for Jennings.

Jennings refuted the report in comments to ESPN's Chris Broussard.

"That is not true," said Jennings. "That stuff never came out of my mouth."

Brandon Jennings: "If I take the qualifying offer and become an [unrestricted] free agent there is no way I am coming back."

Image

By Marc J. Spears

SAN FRANCISCO – Point guard Brandon Jennings, a soon-to-be restricted free agent, says if he signs a one-year qualifying offer with Milwaukee this offseason, expect his days with the Bucks to be limited to one season.

"If I take the qualifying offer and become an [unrestricted] free agent there is no way I am coming back," Jennings told Yahoo! Sports on Friday after practice. "There is no way."

Jennings considers Milwaukee a "great sports town" and has enjoyed his time there, but in order to keep him long term, Jennings said the Bucks' offer must be lucrative and there needs to be changes in the roster and the organization to make it championship caliber.

He turned down a four-year, $40 million deal prior to this season, a source told Yahoo! Sports. A one-year qualifying offer would be worth about $4.5 million for Jennings.

"It's not unfair to make that statement if he feels there is not a deal fair to him this summer," Bucks general manager John Hammond said of Jennings' stance. "I would be surprised if it happens. But he is operating within the [collective bargaining] rules. I'm not taken aback. It's a natural discussion to have."

Jennings plays in one of the NBA's smallest markets and is rarely seen on national television. The Los Angeles native admits that a bigger market is attractive but his preference is to play for a title contender, regardless of a city's size. Jennings noted that the Oklahoma City Thunder play in a small market, but made it to the NBA Finals last season and are frequently on national television.

The Bucks have made one playoff appearance in Jennings' previous three seasons, pushing the Atlanta Hawks to seven games in the first round in 2010 before bowing out. Milwaukee is expected to make the postseason as a seventh or eighth seed this season, but is a long shot to advance, especially if it draws the Miami Heat in the first round.

[Related: Celtics stuck with Paul Pierce instead of dealing him to Dallas]

"I just want to win," Jennings said. "The way I am playing now, I just want to go to a winning team and play like that. I don't care about being a superstar or being the main guy. I did that [the] first four years. I just want to win and be somewhere where it's all about winning.

"I'm not saying the Bucks aren't about winning. But I think [a title caliber situation] will help me, motivate my game and then you have to perform."

Jennings is in a free-agent point guard class that's led by the Los Angeles Clippers' Chris Paul and includes the Dallas Mavericks' Darren Collison (restricted), the Utah Jazz's Mo Williams, the Detroit Pistons' Jose Calderon, the Golden State Warriors' Jarrett Jack and the Clippers' Chauncey Billups.

Jennings is averaging 18.4 points, a career-high 6.6 assists and 1.8 steals this season. He believes he has proven he is more than a score-first point guard since the All-Star Break by averaging 17.6 points and 10.4 assists while shooting 48.8 from 3-point range. Jennings says he'll be more pass-first minded from now on.

"Everybody says I'm just a shooter, I'm just a scorer," Jennings said. "But if you go back to my high school days, I've always been a pass-first point guard. Now that we got J.J. [Redick], who's a good scorer, now I'm just looking for options all the time.

"Basically, I should have been doing what I've been doing the last three months. Is it too late? I don't know. But maybe it's a good way to start showing what else I can do."

The Bucks have Jennings' "Bird Rights" and can pay him for five seasons where another team could give him only a four-year offer. There is a risk if Jennings signs a one-year, qualifying offer while turning down lengthy deals. What if he gets hurt or underperforms? But Jennings, 23, is known for being cavalier. He was the first American to go from high school to playing professional basketball in Europe when he suited up in Italy for a season. Instead of signing with a more well-known shoe company, Jennings was Under Armour's first major basketball client.

"If you think about it I still do have power," Jennings said. "If anything is offered out there that doesn't mean I have to accept it, right? That means next season I will be playing and then I will become a free agent and can go anywhere I want to go.

"It doesn't mean if another team offers me something or the Bucks offer me something that I have to take it. I can still play it out. That's something I've been thinking about. Then I can really have the power to really make my own decision."

Brandon must really hate Milwaukee and wants to sign with a big market team. How about coming back home, Brandon?

Well I think he's got some real talent, I just think he's underdeveloped. I think he thinks he's great, when really he's just good. I think he CAN be great though, I think he has the tools.

In two games in a row not too long ago he had 19 assists and 17 assists back to back. He CAN move the ball when the pieces are around him that he trusts. He CAN shoot well outside, but he shoots too much. For a scoring PG, he shoots just around 40% from the field and that's not good enough.

Someone somewhere will give him big money before he's proven anything and that'll be his down fall. I wouldn't mind him in LA honestly, but only on a reasonable contract. And given that Ellis has shown me more and I already know the price tag, I'd take him first.

No on Brandon Jennings. Don't want another streaky player. He's not a 1st 2nd or 3rd option on a contender. Remember how Kobe locked him down?

He may be young but there's plenty of other volume shooters out there who will take less money and not have the ego he probably has. Or demand the ball as much. I think he's shooting 40% on the season :hurl:

Off the bench or as a starter? I know he's a starting caliber player...but let's assume he opts out and becomes free this summer.

With Dwight/Kobe/Nash and Clark/Pau, we couldn't possibly start him. Also what isn't an overpaying contract for Jennings in this CBA?

This summer? I would trade Gasol for him, Mbah a Moute, and their pick from this season.

I'm not sure if we even start him. :man10:

But in two years, I'd sign him as a free agent for around 5-7 million dollars.

Oh no, one of the best perimeter defenders in the game locked him down? If that was the criteria for who the Lakers targeted, then the front office would have to take Bron off of it too due to down the stretch in the All-Star Game (I actually wouldn't mind that cause one of my worst fears is that douche ends up in P&G)

With us he'd be a lock for the 6th man of the year next year (especially in a MDA system) and then slide in and replace Nash when he's done. He'd also help Nash and his back get some rest.

My comment about Kobe's defense was more to illustrate the shortcomings in his game. My biggest issue is him shooting ~40% for his career. That's pathetic unless he's AI, and he's not.

Brandon Jennings is streaky. I'll take him in a bench role, $5M a year, tops. 3-year deal with a player option on year 3. I don't know much about his defense either, but I'm pretty sure he isn't locking down dudes.

We don't need any more 1-way streaky players. Get me an athletic dude that can defend and doesn't need the ball to be effective. If we're looking for a PG for the future forget Jennings and go for a complete player. IMO Jennings does not have a place on our team unless he comes dirt cheap. That may not be his value on the market, but so be it.

He's an awesome talent but still very raw, he needs a place he can develop into a better PG.

He and Dwight wouldn't work out together. I also am not a huge fan of Jennings' game. I met Jennings once in Irvine at Dave and Busters, when the Loose Cannons had a show there, and I came up asked if we could take a picture with him, and he was pretty cool about it. Took pictures with me and my wife while there, and smiled. My wife commented afterwards..."Wow....he's not that tall" :man10:
Still do not want. Kyrie Irving or John Wall...not this guy

Jennings is better than Wall. But Irving is obviously much better than either.

I really really liked Wall...but he has been a bust so far. Extreme speedy but inconsistent and still can't shoot.

Bucks Plan To Match Any Offer Sheet For Brandon Jennings

Bucks Plan To Match Any Offer Sheet For Brandon Jennings

Image

By Charles F. Gardner of the Journal Sentinel

Bucks general manager John Hammond said the team will be aggressive in trying to sign point guard Brandon Jennings to a long-term contract when the league's free agency period opens Monday.

The Bucks already have made a $4.3 million qualifying offer to Jennings to retain the right to match any other offers for the restricted free agent.

Jennings has been the Bucks starting point guard since he was selected 10th overall in the 2009 draft. He played in all but two games last season and averaged 17.5 points and a career-best 6.5 assists. He had a streak of 182 consecutive games played before sitting out two games late in the regular season.

"It's our intention for Brandon Jennings to remain a Milwaukee Buck," Hammond said Friday. "We're hoping to negotiate with him fairly through the July process.

"At the conclusion of our negotiations if we have not reached a deal and they choose to go out and seek an opportunity in the open market, our intention then would still be to match."

The Bucks introduced the two players they acquired in Thursday's draft, Greek forward Giannis Antetokounmpo and South Dakota State guard Nate Wolters, in a news conference Friday morning.

Hammond said Jennings' importance to the Bucks over the last four years was evident.

"I don't think we should ever negate what Brandon has done for us over the last four years," Hammond said. "In his two years in the NBA he's been on two playoff teams. He's made tremendous efforts for us.

"He's been a warrior. It would be very unfair to us to underrate his prominence within our team."

Jennings has started 289 of 291 games in his four years with the Bucks and has averaged 17.0 points while shooting 35.4% from three-point range.

"He's been tremendous and he's been very positive," Hammond said of his conversations with Jennings.

Hammond also said he was excited about the two players introduced Friday. The Bucks surprised many observers by taking the 18-year-old Antetokounmpo, the youngest player in the draft, with the 15th overall pick.

"It's a pretty simple description, the guys who can pass and catch," Hammond said. "You can't do one well without the other.

"If you're a good passer, you usually have good hands and you can catch the ball. I think we added two guys who know how to play and have a great feel for the game. And one with Nate, we think is a player who can get on the floor and play for us immediately.

"And I don't want to say that Giannis cannot do that. Who knows?"

Wolters was acquired in a complicated trade scenario on Thursday night. He was picked 38th overall by Washington, but Philadelphia acquired the pick and shipped Wolters' rights to the Bucks in return for 43rd pick Ricky Ledo and a future second-round pick.

Ledo eventually wound up in Dallas through another deal.

The Bucks sent a 2014 second-round pick to the 76ers, the pick acquired last year in the Samuel Dalembert trade with Houston. Milwaukee still has its own second-round pick in next year's draft.

so, if you're competing with Milwaukee, how far do you go to make them commit? I get the stance, but if I really wanted Jennings, i'd have no problem calling the bluff.
