Bucks Agree to S&T with Pistons for Brandon Jennings

Re: Bucks Plan To Match Any Offer Sheet For Brandon Jennings

Postby abeer3 on Fri Jun 28, 2013 6:54 pm

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.

^I forgot they had Brandon Knight. I don't think the Pistons or the Buck know what they're doing as of late regarding roster moves, trade transactions, etc. Jennings and Smith will make for an interesting pairing...

So do the Bucks. :man10:

They rented JJ Redick for a year and got lucky to turn him into two 2nd Round Picks... Basically trading that young SF to Orlando for two 2nd Rounders.

Steve Kyler of HoopsWorld wrote:The Milwaukee Bucks’ failed pursuit of Atlanta Hawks free agent Jeff Teague was in part about Teague as a player, but was also about cost. The Bucks’ offer to Teague was roughly $8 million per season or about $4 million less per year than incumbent guard Brandon Jennings is seeking. The Bucks felt Teague fit a little better and was surely a little cheaper, but sources close to the situation said that keeping Jennings was never off the table and with Atlanta matching Teague’s offer sheet, the Bucks will return their focus to trying to reach a deal with Jennings.

The Bucks issued Jennings a $4.53 million Qualifying Offer in order to make him a restricted free agent, so they have the right to match any offer he receives on the open market. Jennings could opt to take the one-year offer and become an unrestricted free agent next year, something his camp has hinted is a possibility if the right offer does not come his way.

The Bucks have been aggressive in trying to change the culture of their team, which is why they looked at changes at point guard and why they have made some of the free agent moves they have made this summer.

The acquisition of O.J. Mayo and Carlos Delfino were part of that character movement, as was the addition of Zaza Pachulia.

Most around the NBA scratched their heads at the three-year, $15 million deal the Bucks gave Pachulia, but sources close to the situation say Pachulia had received numerous two-year offers at $5 million per season and that it took the third year to get him to Milwaukee.

The Bucks view Pachulia as not only an effective enforcer, but also as a leader and role model for the Bucks’ emerging big men Larry Sanders, Ekpe Udoh and John Henson.

The Bucks believe they can reach a deal with Jennings, although it’s extremely clear that it will need to be on their terms and that may take some time to reach.

The Bucks still have roughly $19 million in usable cap space, but are expected to begin extension talks with Sanders and still have Jennings to deal with.

It's strange that Jennings has had no offers so far though. Maybe his price tag is scaring everyone away.

maybe him being RFA? if teams bid too low, bucks may match. and no one wants to bid too high for jennings cuz they feel not worth it.

if monta ellis got 3 yrs 25 million, i'd say jennings is worth about as much...but bucks would match that offer i think....and jennings doesnt want to stay in milwaukee. he may be better off signing the qualifying offer and becoming a UFA next season.

I suppose so. I just think it's clear that Milwaukee doesn't even really want him anymore. Why not make him an offer anyway?

For those who think Brandon Jennings is now a lock to return to Bucks, guess again. As of this tweet, Bucks still looking at other PGs.

ESPN wrote: The Detroit Pistons officially announced the next step in their win-now plan Wednesday, acquiring point guard Brandon Jennings from the Milwaukee Bucks for guard Brandon Knight and two other players.

"We believe Brandon's talent and skill-set will complement the core group of players we have assembled on our roster in a positive way," Pistons president of basketball operations Joe Dumars said in a statement released by the team.

The Pistons also gave up two seldom-used players, forward Khris Middleton and center Viacheslav Kravtsov.

Detroit has signed free-agents Josh Smith, Chauncey Billups and Luigi Datome this offseason after drafting shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope with the No. 8 overall pick, but it didn't have a standout point guard until agreeing to a deal with Milwaukee. The Pistons seem to have improved their chances of ending their four-year postseason drought with a series of moves this summer.

The 23-year-old Jennings averaged 17.5 points and a career-high 6.5 assists last season, ranking among the league's top 20 in both categories, and 2.5 turnovers. The restricted free agent has agreed to a $24 million, three-year contract with the Pistons.

Milwaukee drafted Jennings 10th overall in 2009 out of Oak Hill Academy and he averaged 17 points, 5.7 assists and 2.4 turnovers over four seasons with the Bucks, who could've matched any offer made to the restricted free agent this offseason.

"We evaluated all of our options and we determined this was the best one for us at this time," Bucks general manager John Hammond said in a telephone interview.

Detroit drafted Knight eighth overall in 2011 out of Kentucky. He averaged 13.1 points, 3.9 assists and 2.7 turnovers over the last two seasons.

"We're excited about being able to add a young point guard, who we expect to have a long and successful career with us," Hammond said.

Middleton, a second-round pick last year, averaged 6.1 points in 27 games with the Pistons.

"This is going to be a great opportunity for Khris because he's going to have a chance to earn viable minutes and we hope he takes advantage of it," Hammond said.

The 6-foot-11 Kravtsov averaged 3.1 points in 25 games last season as a rookie, and might not end up being on the opening-day roster with the Bucks.

Milwaukee, coming off its first postseason in three years, signed free agent combo guard Gary Neal to a two-year deal worth just under $6 million on Tuesday. Neal will help add some scoring to a backcourt that will be without Monta Ellis and J.J. Redick next season.

Josh and Jennings on the same team :yikes: . I feel bad for Cheeks, he's going to have a loooong season ahead of him.

What's REALLY scary...

The Pistons probably make the 8th seed in the East now. :man10:

Pistons got better...... Too bad there's no one left in Detroit to watch them.

I'm glad he didn't end up here.... He's fun to watch at times but he's also a lot better in his head than he is in reality.

Horrific offseason from Detroit. Way to seal years of mediocrity after the years of mediocrity that Villy and Gordon brought them. Dumars is the worst GM in the league.

Charlie V and Ben Gordon 2.0

Detroit gets cap space and immediately buys whatever is on the market they can get.

They should be building around Drummond and Monroe. Both these moves just stunt their growth IMO.

I think Jennings is a good move for them and I don't think he stunts the growth of Drummond and Monroe.

But Smith certainly does. What the f*** are they going to do with him?

Unless they're looking to flip one of the young bigs, the signing of Smith doesn't make sense. And they could get a pretty nice haul for Monroe or Drummond.

After watching Bballbreakdown's video of why Jennings was a RFA (at the time) with no offers and the fact he chucks it up 16 times a game at 39% for his career, he's going to take away looks from them two.

Now throw Josh Smith in there.

I understand his chucking-ness, but he is a better player than Brandan Knight was. I think he'll do a better job of finding teammates in a new city.

But again, Josh Smith is the real mystery in this. They've got to let one of the big men go.
