Brandon Jennings didn't play in the fourth quarter, and there's no telling if he'll ever play for the Milwaukee Bucks again.
Jennings and the rest of the Bucks headed into an offseason of uncertainty Sunday night after being swept out of the playoffs by the Miami Heat. The 88-77 loss was the fourth straight by double digits for Milwaukee, and the Bucks couldn't even beat the Heat with Dwyane Wade on the bench, an ice bag on his aching right knee.
''This has been a crazy year. It's been one of the craziest years of my life, actually,'' said Jennings, a restricted free agent. ''With the coaching changes and everything, it's just a total rollercoaster.''
It isn't likely to stop for the next several months, either.
Jennings is expected to test free agency, though the Bucks can match any offer for him. Monta Ellis, who led Milwaukee with 21 points on Sunday, has an $11 million player option.
Oh, the Bucks need to make a dec...
BEST OF MAXIM
Brandon Jennings is starting sway back and forth like a palm tree.
For the past few months, Jennings has been throwing subtle hints through the media that he was looking to escape Milwaukee. He turned down a 4-year $40 million contract extension from the Bucks, said that he wants to play for a contender and has voiced his displeasure with coaching decisions on more than one occasion...
Milwaukee Bucks guard Brandon Jennings is scheduled to be a restricted free agent this off-season. Meaning that he could sign an offer sheet with another team and the Bucks would have an opportunity to match that offer. It was assumed that Jennings wanted to play elsewhere next season after turning down a 4-year, $40 [...]
Milwaukee Bucks guard Brandon Jennings was hoping to go out in style, but what style, exactly, was he even going for?
MILWAUKEE It just felt inevitable.
Though they hung around for most of the game, the Milwaukee Bucks just seemed destined for a slow death Sunday afternoon in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.
Even the stadium emcee thanked the fans at halftime and shouted to the fans that there were only 24 minutes left in Bucks playoff basketball right before the third quarter...
Next time the Milwaukee Bucks are together, they might need name tags.
A day after being swept out of their first playoff appearance in three years, the Bucks began scattering Monday for what is sure to be a chaotic offseason. Luc Mbah a Moute, Larry Sanders, Ersan Ilyasova and rookie John Henson are the only key players under contract for next season. J.J. Redick and Mike Dunleavy...
Despite speculation surrounding his future in the NBA, Gustavo Ayon expects the Milwaukee Bucks to pick up the team option on his contract for next season and is looking forward to returning, his agent Emilio Duran told RealGM.
The Bucks traded for Ayon in the deal that brought them J.J. Redick, and the organization insisted that the Orlando Magic include Ayon. From the start, the...
Not exactly the best formula for beating the Miami Heat in 6 games, I think. The Milwaukee Bucks find themselves at the mercy of the Miami Heat, and guard J.J. Redick decided to let this be known about the state of the team and the state of his particular relationship with head coach Jim Boylan. [...]
The Milwaukee Bucks made the playoffs this year for only the second time since 2006-07. The NFL draft takes place each and every year. But that didn't stop the vast majority of sports fans in the Milwaukee area from tuning into the draft last Thursday, rather than Game 3 of the Bucks' first-round series with the Miami Heat.
From Bob Wolfley of the Milwaukee Journal...
The Miami Heat beat the Milwaukee Bucks, again. Thursday’s 104-91 victory puts Miami up 3-0, making it impossible for Brandon Jennings and the Bucks to win the series in six games like Jennings prematurely predicted. “I’m real confident,” said Jennings. “I’m sure everybody is writing us off but I see us winning the series in six. There’s no pressure on
A competitive game of Jeopardy seems to be on the horizon
The Duke trio of J.J. Redick, Shane Battier and Mike Dunleavy are in a battle of who would win in a game of Jeopardy. It probably would be more competitive than the current Milwaukee/Miami first round playoff series the three are currently involved in. Of course barring an upset for the ages, Battier is likely to win that...
