    Default Brandon Jennings

    Recently, Brandon Jennings tweeted this:

    "If you could be from another city. What City would it be??? Or State?"
    and then...
    "I'm from #California so I'm good.... But if I had to pick I would say #Toronto...."

    https://twitter.com/#!/BRAND0NJENNINGS

    It seems he would love to come here, has DD to buddy up with, and we need a point guard. Based on these facts, should BC go after him full force once his contract is up (no idea when) what do yall think?

    Jennings isn't a guy I would openly go after. But then again, there aren't too many (American) players who openly choose Toronto. With some guidance/discipline from Casey, Jennings definitely has the tools to be a standout PG in this league. It could be exactly what the doctor ordered when this team is ready to compete in 2-3 years. Combine that with the DeRozan buddy factor, and it looks to be an even better fit.

    He's got 2 years left, plus a qualifying offer. Wonder what it would take to get him.

    On the plus side he is having a solid third year in the NBA, showing good improvement on his shooting percentages. His assist to turn over ratio is also improved. On the negative side, he is slight of frame and I question his durability. There are worse guys out there.

    Jennings has huge talent and he's aggressive but he needs to become more focused on protecting the ball and creating for others. If he were traded here or if he were to sign here I would be ok with it. The Raptors could do a lot worse and from a talent perspective they don't have anyone who can match his talents at the guard spot. He also has a year of experience playing over seas so not only would he jive with his best bud DeRozan but he could also probably relate well to Bargnani and JV. That's very important seeing how those two guys will probably options 1 and 2 in a few years.

    I think he could be had for someone like Ed Davis. Others could be added to round out the deal so that it's fair while meeting the CBA.

    I don't think we have anything to offer the Bucks. We can't add DeMar, and Bargs is not an option. I also wouldn't give a 2012 first rounder for him. The only other option is to give up Ed Davis, a future draft pick and send Barbosa and expiring contracts for their unwanted salary (S.Jackson, Udrih, or Gooden). That doesn't sound like a good option for us. It to bad because that would he would be a nice addition.

    I can't see the Buck's trading Jennings unless it was for a player or assets that is sure to make them better. They are building the team around Bogut and Jennings as core peices.

    RT @TheRealJudah @BRAND0NJENNINGS Why Toronto? The city is amazing!!!! And the women are beautiful
    I like this kid. He knows what he's talking about.

    I would imagine he's got Demar in his ear, mentioning how are Strip Clubs are WAAAY better than the US; how we've got the biggest Carabana outside of the Carribean; and how Rexdale is almost JUST LIKE Compton where the two are from! Hahaha

    We saw how good Demar played last year with big bro Money by his side. I think Jennings would be a trigger for Demar to play better, and eventually sign a long term deal here.

    I think BC should be all over this. You dont get that many players going public on how much they like Toronto.

    And its not like getting buddies to play together is uncommon in the league, Magic got Baby for Dwight, Jack and Bosh before...

    TJ and Bosh used to be pretty close too. But so is Bosh and Aldridge and Colangelo passed on Aldridge.

    Are you sure?

    The Milwaukee Bucks reportedly would be open to listening to offers for guard Brandon Jennings.

    I wasn't aware they were shopping him and it looks like Bogut is out with a fractured ankle. The Bucks seem to have lost all their momentum from a couple of seasons ago and the Cap'n Jack experiment is so far a complete failure. If they are looking to move Jennings I'd be happy if Toronto made a move for him. Young, quick, can break guys down off the dribble, good vision and has a lot of great leadership qualities. Plus if he can be coached by Skiles it shows he is willing to be coached. I wouldn't have been excited about this deal last year but he's been playing solid ball this season.

    I don't know about shopping but they are at least open to the idea of trading him.

    If the Bucks were looking to save some cash I'd love to see this deal.

    http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMa...radeId=83m7hut

    Draft MKG, Miller or Barnes and we're looking real nice.

    Jennings/Calderon
    Demar/Jackson/Forbes
    Draft Pick/JJ/Kleiza
    Bargnani/Amir/Sanders
    JV/Gray/Maglore

    I'd re-up both Gray and Maglore for practice bodies and leadership. Note Sanders is probably asking too much and would do the deal for Jennings and Jackson only if was still possible.

    Jennings is one of the top PG targets on my list ... I think he is attainable, for the right deal. Ed Davis is a good start, with our 2nd rounder or a future pick - but I don't think it would happen until the offseason

    Add that to the news that Batum will not be extending with Portland before become an RFA this offseason ... Jennings and Batum would be amazing additions, along with Jonas and the pick.

    Jennings and Jose are perfect balance at PG.
