Brandon Jennings became eligible for a contract extension on July 1, but nothing has come out of either his camp or the Milwaukee Bucks' organization. All has been quiet on those fronts.
Earlier in the year, Gery Woelfel of the Journal Times reported that Jennings was open to signing an extension with the Bucks, but that it was by no means a guarantee:
There are some NBA observers who believe Jennings will reject an extension and inevitably leave Milwaukee. Of course, those perceptions are based primarily on comments made by Jennings himself earlier this season.
That’s when Jennings hinted he wasn’t content in Milwaukee and that he might want to showcase his talents in a city with more glitz and glamour.
Said Jennings at the time: “I am going to keep my options open, knowing that the time is coming up. I’m doing my homework on big-market teams.”
Jennings is a player who likes to throw up shots whenever possible, and it wouldn't be surprising at all if he grew discontent playing alongside Monta Ellis. After all, the former Golden State Warrior has a similar mentality and might clash with his backcourt mate over the course of a full season.
The left-handed point guard has spent his entire—albeit short—career with the Bucks, but don't expect that to last too much longer.
