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 he was worth both $8.3M per season and Brandon Knight, who was actually pretty good last year in Detroit.
Now, you may think that this would take Detroit out of the Rajon Rondo sweepstakes, but Vincent Ellis of the Detroit Free Pass says not so fast my friends.
Like I said earlier, move doesn't stop #Pistons from seeking Rondo. More of a matter they couldn't wait around to see what happens there.

Source said Rondo viewed as franchise-level PG so you do all you can. Also weak FA class for PGs nect summer also forced #Pistons hand.
