Brandon Jennings found out that he’s not yet worth $12 million per season, and he also got the change of scenery he was seeking.
Jennings will now try to fit in with the long lineage of great point guards in Detroit, and even though he didn’t get the money he was seeking, he is happy.
While playing in a pickup game with friend and Raptors forward Amir Johnson, Jennings told the Toronto Sun that he’s happy with the trade to Detroit.
Jennings declined to say much, saying he wants to “stay under the radar for now,” but did admit “I’m happy” about the trade.
If Jennings wants to ever make the $12 million he covet’s, he’s going to have to go to Detroit, fit in, and make guys better. A Pistons team with Brandon Jennings jacking shots up from the point guard position will not prosper.

Why, you ask? Because Dumars literally had no other choice. If he had sat...
Yesterday, the Pistons signed "point guard" Brandon Jennings to a 3 year, $25 million deal. I put it in quotes because Jennings is a point guard simply by default. In reality he's a ball dominating combo guard that shoots a lot (15.5 FGA per game in his career), but is terribly inefficient (39.4% career FG).
Still, at only 23 years old the Pistons clearly thought...
