Brandon Jennings wants to play in a bigger market

Published on February 11, 2012 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

Milwaukee Bucks star Brandon Jennings is only in his three year with the Bucks but he is already talking about leaving the Bucks and going to a big market team in the future. Jennings is still only 22 years old having playing overseas 1 year after high school.

Jennings is having his best season as a pro so far this season averaging 19.1 points per game. He is also averaging 5.4 assists per game. Jennings also led the Bucks in scoring last season. This season he has the Bucks at 10-12 and that’s with Andrew Bogut out with an injury. If it wasn’t for Jennings stellar play who knows what the Bucks record would be.

According to a report by Espn’ Chris Broussard Jennings is doing his homework on the big market teams.

“I am going to keep my options open, knowing that the time is coming up,” Jennings said. “I’m doing my homework on big market teams.” Jennings, 22, is in his third NBA season and will be eligible to sign a long-term contract extension with Milwaukee this summer. While he has not established himself as an All-Star or maximum-salaried player, he’s led the Bucks in scoring the past two seasons and currently has them in playoff contention despite the loss of center Andrew Bogut to injury. [...] “I’m not saying I won’t (sign an extension with the Bucks) and I’m not saying I will,” he said. “I’m just keeping my options open.”

“When you start seeing other players like Dwight Howard or CP3, you start thinking,” said Jennings. [...] “It has nothing to do with the city of Milwaukee or anything like that because that’s where I started my career,” Jennings said. “They’ve been nothing but good to me. (Coach) Scott Skiles and (general manager) John Hammond have been good to me. It’s just that I’m understanding the business of basketball now.”

I really don’t blame Jennings for wanting to leave Milwaukee but saying this now isn’t going to help matters. Now the fans will be upset with you and he will get constant questions from the media about his future.

Jennings was somewhat of an All Star snub but playing for the Bucks didn’t help matters. If he was in a big market there would probably be a better chance than he would have made the game.

The new CBA was suppose to make the star type players stay with the small market teams but players want to be in the bright lights see Dwight Howard and Chris Paul.

I don’t blame Jennings one bit his best chance to win is in a big market. In Milwaukee other star players aren’t going to come to join Jennings. Jennings has to go to a bigger market to play with other stars.

If I were Jennings I would want to go to a bigger market too but wait to the season is over to talk about it.
