    Default Brandon Jennings

    I know this is highly unlikely, given that we're barely sitting under the cap, but, since Demar and Brandon Jennings are pretty much really good friends, do you think there'll be any scenario for Brandon to come to Toronto? I know his desired salary is not happening at 12 mil, but i'm thinking maybe we get rid of lowry some how in a package, and sign Brandon to an offer sheet of like 8, 9 mil a season?

    The best day of 2013 was the day I found out Andrea Bargnani got traded.

    Things never really go as planned when you bring good friends together..

    Even look at the Heat. I mean they didn't exactly start out like everyone expected. They nearly lost two of three finals. They're just now starting to live up to expectations..

    Not at all trying to compare. Just providing examples.

    Look at the past with Bargnani and Belinelli. Bosh and Jack.

    Even the Super Friends don't always get along. Batman's fucking arguing with Superman and shit..

    good point...

    dont even mention bargnani....he doesnt count for anything. soooooooooooo happy he's gone.

    i thought bosh and jack were mediocre together. i think demar and jennings go back to high school basketball, im not sure. but those are two talented guys and it would stir up the east a bit if they actually worked well together. jennings isnt that bad of a facilitator in my opinion.

    but all good points

    Maybe a scenario where we ship out the super friends Kyle (to Mil) & Rudy (to Cha or Det). Take back Jennings along with picks, expiring contracts and maybe a prospect as well. Mind you im not a Jennings fan im just playing along.

    TO CHA:
    Rudy Gay

    TO MIL:
    Kyle Lowry
    Landry Fields

    TO TOR:
    Brandon Jennings S&T 40/4
    Ekpe Udoh
    Gerald Henderson S&T 12/3
    Ben Gordon
    Pick(s) from CHA

    C: Valanciunas - Amir - Udoh - Gray
    PF: Hansbrough - Amir - Acy
    SF: DeRozan - Ross - Novak
    SG: Henderson - Ross - Gordon
    PG: Jennings - Buycks - Augustin

    I wonder if Charlotte would take Jennings, and send us Kemba. I'd prefer Kemba.

    Not sure how much Charlotte values Kemba, but based on Jennings off-season so far id be inclined to think that they would prefer to keep Kemba. And if it came down to it I would rather take back a pick from Charlotte than to lose the pick on the Kemba/Jennings swap.

    I say this not having really seen much of Kemba up until this point. I have seen Jennings first hand and liked his game, if he can buy into a system he can be something special.

    All I know is that Kemba has all the intangibles that Jennings doesn't.

    I don't know where Gay fits in Charlotte. I don't like the fit for them. I guess if they are trying to get mediocre now at all costs, it makes some sense. But it would make much more sense to go with what they have and then find better fit(s) with cap space next summer. They'd likely have a high or mid lotto pick, too.

    kemba sucks. i`m so glad the raps didn`t draft him, and they were talking like they were going to. i`d say that`s a lot to give up for jennings.....rudy, derozan, jennings, amir, valancuinas, maaaan. we`d be making some noise in the east.

    Wait wait wait.

    So Milwaukee gives up rights to Jennings for an expiring Lowry who will walk in the offseason and Landry Fields' awful contract?

    Some of you need to stop thinking real life = NBA 2K, although I doubt you could pull off that joke of a trade in a video game either.

    Jennings is an MVP caliber player in 2k13, and Lowry starts declining very soon, at like 29 or 30.

    Well, my point was that it's probably because Jennings is set as too valuable in 2k, but actually no. I checked that trade, and in my version (2k13, no updates) the Bobcats accept that trade for Gay, and the Bucks are pretty close to taking it too (they ask for a pick).

    I guess different versions.

    It's funny, I ran an association not long ago (with the Raptors), and Jennings won the title with the Bucks there, won the MVP and was all-NBA nearly every year. Hilarious.

    Actually now that it seems like Jennings really doesn't want to play in Milwaukee.... maybe they would be stupid enough to take Fields+Lowry for him. I'd do that in a second.

    Jennings is a good player. He has to chuck because Milwaukee lacks offensive weapons. He's actually one of the best 3 point shooters in the league and a very good defender and passer. He just needs to be a 3rd or 4th option on offense instead of #1.
