NBA rumors have been swirling around Brandon Jennings. The Orlando Magic’s season came to early end, and now the team will start focusing on their off season priorities. The Magic will have to decide if they want to resign Jennings this summer. If the team chooses not to bring him back, several teams in the National Basketball Association could be interested in adding him to their roster. According to FanSided, one of the teams that might be looking to sign the 26-year-old point guard is the Brooklyn Nets.
The Milwaukee Bucks selected Brandon Jennings with the tenth pick in the 2009 NBA Draft. He became the first player to skip college and play overseas so that he can be drafted by a National Basketball Association team. The Bucks drafted Jennings with the hope that he would be their franchise point guard. He led the Bucks to the NBA Playoffs twice in his four years with the team.
As part of his rehabilitation process, Brandon Jennings decided to play with the Detroit Pistons’ D-League affiliation. He played one game for the Grand Rapids Drive. Jennings was recalled to the Pistons the day after their game. He played 23 games for the Pistons. Jennings and Ersan Ilyasova were traded to the Orlando Magic for Tobias Harris.
There are several teams in need of a point guard. One of those teams is the Brooklyn Nets. They will be looking for a starter for next season. The Nets already have a couple key pieces on their roster. They have a solid front court in Thaddeus Young and Brook Lopez. From the looks of it, they seem to have found a gem in Rondae Hollis-Jefferson. Brandon Jennings will have a full summer to get 100 percent healthy. When healthy, Jennings has the potential to be an All Star. He would be able to help the Nets.
The Brooklyn Nets are looking to add a point guard this summer. They hired Kenny Atkinson to be their new head coach. He has experience in developing players to get the best out of them. The addition of Brandon Jennings could help the team. When healthy, he is a very explosive player.
