Milwaukee Bucks: Why the Bucks Had the NBA’s Worst Off Season Josh Morgan: HoopStuff Writer… Players added: Carlos Delfino, Brandon Knight, O.J. Mayo, Zaza Pachulia, Luke Ridnour, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Nate Wotlers Players lost: Samuel Dalembert, Monta Ellis, Brandon Jennings, J.J. Redick, Mike Dunleavy Analysis: Last season the Bucks made the playoffs, earning the privilege of being swept by the Miami Heat in the first round. Led by Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings, the Bucks were a young and talented team, but they earned the playoff spot by default with the weakness of the Eastern Conference. Going into the off season, both Ellis and Jennings were free agents, with Jennings restricted. Ellis wound up signing with the Dallas Mavericks and Jennings was traded to the Detroit Pistons for point guard Brandon Knight. While Knight is a good young player, he is not nearly as dynamic a scorer as either Jennings or Ellis. The signing of Mayo is not a huge hit financially, but he has never...

Boards-n-Blocks: The Larry Sanders Show

Larry Sanders was so incredibly tasty during the 2012-2013 fantasy season. He was so good. In a lot of ways amazing. The F/C was a regular drop/add for me throughout the year, coming on board to pile up double-doubles and blocks and games where he just went off – that triple-double on Nov. 30 where he put up 10 Pts, 12 boards and 10 blocks and a 17-20-2 on Dec. 21. He also had...

Larry Sanders close to extension with Bucks

The Milwaukee Bucks and Larry Sanders are nearing an extension that’s going to pay the big guy pretty darn well. The Bucks let Brandon Jennings walk as he wasn’t happy but it looks like Sanders wants to stay in Wisconsin. I’m not quite sure why as they’re not going to be in contention any time soon. I guess that means the Bucks will try to build around one of the NBA...

Detroit Pistons’ Brandon Jennings Can Infuse Serious Star Power Into His New No. 7

Within the history of the Detroit Pistons organization, the No. 7 hasn’t played host to fantastic talent. As star crossed numbers go in the city, this one ranks fairly high. That’s why it was worth a double take on Tuesday seeing new Pistons’ point guard Brandon Jennings hold up his new jersey during his introductory press conference. Jennings, who once starred wearing the...

Video: Brandon Jennings Wipes Out At Roller Skating Rink

Thanks to Cassy Athena who was there...

Brandon Jennings Isn’t Promised Pistons’ Starting Point Guard Job

Brandon Jennings is loving life as a Piston right now, but what happens if he doesn’t start? Joe Dumars isn’t sure who will start at point guard for the Detroit Pistons this season, but according to MLive, Dumars says every guard on the teams has told him that they plan on starting. “So did Will Bynum, so did Peyton Siva, so did Brandon Jennings. They all told me that when...

Brandon Jennings Not Guaranteed To Be Pistons Starting Point Guard

According to Pistons GM, Joe Dumars, the Pistons starting point guard job is up for grabs and not guaranteed to anybody, including recently acquired Brandon Jennings. In an interview with Brendan Savage of MLive, Dumars said that the decision is up to head coach, Maurice Cheeks, who says he’s giving it to whoever “earns it.” In fact, when Billups signed in Detroit, he said...

I would rather have Brandon Jennings than Rajon Rondo

Yeah, that’s right. I would rather have Brandon Jennings than Rajon Rondo for the Detroit Pistons. Ever since Jennings was acquired on January 30, there have been plenty of rumors that Jennings will be part of a package to the Boston Celtics for Rondo. Jennings is eligible to be traded on December 15. Here’s why I would rather have Jennings than Rondo: Rondo is a hot-head, he...

Detroit Pistons: What All 5 Projected Starters MUST Work On

Detroit Pistons: What All 5 Projected Starters MUST Work On By Mike Elworth: Owner PG: Brandon Jennings- Passing - Brandon Jennings can score the ball, everyone knows this, but he, to put it delicately, does not enjoy passing the ball. Now that he is not the best player on his team, like he was in Milwaukee, he cannot be selfish with the basketball and for the first time in his career...

Bucks Didn't Enter Offseason With Goal Of Being $7M Under Cap

The Milwaukee Bucks improved their cap situation this offseason though it wasn't intentional. The Bucks' $32 million offer sheet to Jeff Teague was matched by the Atlanta Hawks and then they dealt Brandon Jennings to the Detroit Pistons in a sign-and-trade for Brandon Knight, who remains on his rookie contract. The Bucks are approximately $7 million under the NBA's salary...
