For some reason watching Jennings play with the Bucks looks like he doesn't even try sometimes.  He makes it clear that he doesn't wanna be their haha

Once he matures as a player then yes. I think he has a high ceiling. Could be a 20 and 10 guy if he matures

Guy is so over rated. Idk why any team would pay a guy 10 mill, hell even 5 mill for a guy who shoots 39%.

Being him in for 4.4 off the bench.

Mike D'Antoni is GARBAGE.

I know his dream is to play for the Lakers, but he said a big market in general. Could we route him to Boston in a 3 way trade for Rondo? He could be a young cheaper piece for the rebuilding Celtics. Something along the lines of Rondo to LA; Blake, Meeks, Sullinger, and a 1st to Milwakee; and Jennings and Hill to the Celtics?

K-Mart can do that and at a way greater discount.


Lol K Mart can't even TOUCH Sanders' level of play right now.

I think we're quite full in the guard department. Only defensive-minded wings should be considered at this point.

Kenyon Martin can't compare to Sanders on the defensive end, not after this season. I honestly think Martin's defense has gotten vastly overrated the last few seasons. He's solid, but he's only slightly above average. He wasn't even that great of a defender dating back to all those playoff series we played against the Nuggets a few years back, and he'll be 36 next season. He's not a gamechanger on that end of the floor.

 

Sanders is one of the best help-defenders in the league, young, super athletic, quick on his feet, and he's a pretty solid man defender. He's basically Ibaka with less of an offensive game, better shot anticipation (Ibaka basically bites on every pump-fake) and better man defense.

 

I don't really want Jennings, but if we could land Sanders I'd make that aforementioned trade in a heartbeat.

Jennings AND Sanders is hitting a jackpot if you give up Hill/Blake + filler

Mike D'Antoni is GARBAGE.

Seriously, like I proposed I would even do a Nash, Blake, Hill for a Jennings and Sanders.  Gasoft would finally have a defensive post presence in Sanders.  In my opinion he could be a future Tyson Chandler but maybe with a better offensive game if worked upon.


Or as you stated Ham, Blake, Hill, and our 2015 protected pick for Jennings plus Sanders would be unreal.  DO IT MITCH haha

Nash Kobe and Carmelo I can deal with.

Jennings... no.  

Carmelo would cooperate with Kobe and they've already formulated how their games would change if they were on a team together.  Same can be said of a player like LeBron.

But a guy like Jennings?  No.  He isn't a max player, he's barely a mid level exception player, he thinks he's worth a max contract and is a chucker that doesn't know how to get people involved in the offense, doesn't make good decisions when passing the ball and his claim to fame is scoring 58 in his rookie year. 

Unless he proves to be more than that this season and just blows us all away I'll hold onto that money and wait for 2015 to sign John Wall when he's unrestricted.

 

C'mon man... do you really believe that? Mid-level exception player? $5M?

 

4.4 sounds about his worth level right now. :D Young has shown just as much as Jennings, and we got him for cheap.

 

A young PG. :D :D

 

Seriously?

You know there's a reason for why Young signed for the minimum and Jennings will get at least $10M, right?

Why the hell would we want a PG that is a proven bad teammate and simply can't shoot to save his life?

Yes, he's great with the ball in his hands... but all in all, no thanks.

You bash Rondo and say he can't shoot to save his life but you want Jennings who is a career 39% shooter, can't run a team, doesn't look for assists and is a 2 trapped in a 1s body that can't create for anyone but himself and when he creates for himself it's at 39% while Rondo who "can't shoot to save his life" does so at around 48% and is a career 48% from the field(which is astounding!) while still creating for others and being a walking triple double?  Yet you call Rondo the one that's "only great with the ball in his hands" and "can't shoot to save his life" when Brandon Jennings is the guy you're trying to speak up for.....

Forgive me if I don't understand your logic at all.
