    Default Jenings unhappy and wants a S&T out of Milwakee?




    Would you flip Lowry for him?

    No. A bad attitude is exactly what this "culture change" movement doesn't need.

    Well, he's immature for one. He doesn't possess many leadership qualities either, and he isn't very supportive of his teammates. I recall one game late in the season where he was benched in the 4th quarter, and came out later saying "I don't see any All-Stars on this team."

    I dunno. Guess he'd be a decent pickup, but I wouldn't pay big bucks (no pun intended) for him.

    I wouldn't want him as the back up either. He has a hugely inflated opinion of his abilities and plays how he wants whenever he wants. I don't think he understands what a sign and trade is. He seems to think it means he just gets whatever he is asking for and is immediately moved. If he wants a sign and trade why isn't his agent out looking for teams to sign him to an offer sheet. No one wants this guy. He will either sit the year or take the qualifying offer and play one year. Just like ellis he isn't going to get the type of money he wants.

    Did you read somewhere that his agent isn't looking for a S&T deal? Or that no one want him?

    Just wondering because this whole S&T thing just broke so it wouldn't be a stretch to believe that he only just recently reached his breaking point and decided to go this way.

    I mean I could understand him not being happy about the team making plays to unseat him in Milwaukee. Would you be happy with your company if they told you they were out head hunting, trying to find somebody to take your job?

    Nba point guard is probably deepest position in league.

    Where could he go that is either not set or in tank mode?

    Sacramento or Detroit are the only two places I can think of and I doubt either does much for Milwaukee.

    He'll go back to Europe.

    I'd flip him for Lowry if they included a 2014 first or one of Sanders/Henson.

    Make the S/T a one year deal and if he's not great then we have more cap space at the end of the year. Lord knows he probably won't play well when we trade Demar at the deadline.

    It's not about his skill set. It's his attitude.

    Lowry doesn't exactly have the best attitude

    This is a good point. He's fought his wars against coaches.

    Milwaukee is desperate because they are perpetually in win-now mode due to their ownership, but there is no chance in hell they trade LARRY SANDERS! because he is the best player on the team and at the position that's hardest to fill. John Henson is maybe possible but not terribly likely, not for Lowry alone.

    Orlando needs a PG as well.

    But they are in tank mode.

    They have Jameer Nelson until they can draft one or trade for someone younger than Lowry (will be 28 at end of season).

    *EDIT* I'm sorry, you meant in reference to Jennings. Yeah. That makes sense. Doubt they have much interest in him though.

    Really I suppose I shouldn't have asked the question of should they flip Lowry for him because really in S&T the team doing the signing rarely gets anything close to full value. They could probably get Jennings for pieces that can be used as chips later. Then the Raptors would flip Lowry else where for something of value.

    I'm not sure who Jennings will be in two or three years so this is a risky proposition.

    Jennings does have the natural talent to be one of the better PG's in the league if he matures though.

    Re Lowry, today, July 15th, is the last day to waive him for a mill.$ or his contract for next year is in force (6.2 mill.). At least that's my understanding.

    Jennings must be quite pissed and probably believes he is worth at least the 8 mill./per Teague was offered.

    if Jennings can be signed long term for $8M/year and he matures he will be a high value player.

    Jennings wants 12 Mil..

    Now imagine Derozan was in this situation... If Jennings signs for 12 Mil, dont you think Derozan has a right to ask for the same amount? Thank goodness he was extended earlier and for cheaper!
