Brandon Jennings, Who Last Year Said He Wanted to 'Explore His Options,' Can't Be Happy He Was Benched Down the Stretch

Remember how Brandon Jennings made it quite clear last February he wanted to explore his options when his rookie contract in Milwaukee was up? Well what if the Bucks have had enough of him and want to go in another direction?

Take Tuesday night. The Bucks, locked in a tight game on the road in Dallas, went with a backcourt of Monta Ellis and JJ Redick, and left Brandon Jennings on the bench. The Bucks won, 95-90.

“I felt that group was playing well together,” Boylan said. “I saw the game kind of slipping from us a little bit. I needed to get those guys out there again. I went back to J.J. and obviously it worked out for us.”

Oh. Ellis said after the game he’s been playing the point lately. Jennings, aka Young Money, only played 32 minutes and shot 3-of-11. Ellis had nine assists to only six for Jennings. Hmmmm.

There’s no guarantee the Bucks will be able to afford Redick in the offseason, but if they do decide to slide Ellis to point, what’s your best guess on where Jennings ends up? Might they trade him the way the Jazz dealt Deron Williams, so as not to lose him in the summer of 2014 for nothing?

Can’t imagine the market is a big one for Jennings (18.7 ppg, 6.7 apg, 40 percent FGs). Dallas, maybe? Might want to spend the summer making 500 shots a day, Mr. Jennings.
