Veteran NBA guard Brandon Jennings has signed a G League contract, league sources tells Adam Johnson of 2 Ways & 10 Days (Twitter link).

Having signed a G League deal, Jennings will be available on waivers, with the Wisconsin Herd – Milwaukee’s affiliate – currently holding the No. 1 priority, Johnson notes (via Twitter). If no G League teams places a claim for Jennings, he would enter the league’s available player pool, freeing him up to sign with any club.

Jennings’ decision to play in the G League comes on the heels of his comments indicating that he’s looking to get back into the NBA. As we detailed on Monday, the 28-year-old sounds open to returning to the league in any way possible, suggesting he’d be happy to sign a 10-day contract. Signing a G League deal signals that Jennings wants to go out and prove he’s worthy of a spot on an NBA roster, rather than waiting around for a team to call.

Prior to going down with a torn Achilles in January 2015, Jennings had averaged 16.6 PPG in over 400 career regular season games. However, he didn’t look like the same player after the injury, recording just 7.0 PPG in part-time roles for the Pistons, Magic, Knicks, and Wizards.

Jennings, who says he has fully recovered from that Achilles injury, spent the 2017/18 season in China, posting 27.8 PPG, 6.8 APG, and 5.1 RPG for the Shanxi Brave Dragons. He has returned stateside now that Shanxi’s season is over.
