Brandon Jennings is viewed by many as the Milwaukee Bucks' franchise player.
With that being said, Jennings made waves in 2012 when he claimed he'd be "doing his homework on big-market teams" (via ESPN).
According to Marc Stein of ESPN, the Dallas Mavericks may grant him an early Christmas present in that regard.
Not only does this deal make sense, but it's quite likely to transpire.
Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers will become an unrestricted free agent this offseason. However, Stein reports that there is a "99.5 percent chance" that CP3 re-signs with L.A.
Beyond him, the next-best point guard could be Tyreke Evans—a restricted free agent.
Although the Mavs could pursue Jennings during this coming period of free agency, he too is an RFA. In other words, Milwaukee could match any offer.
Expect Dallas to pull the trigger for Jennings and take a wait-and-see approach as they gauge the possibility of letting B.J. walk in favor of CP3 this Summer.
In case Paul re-signs, the Mavs would be able to re-sign Jennings for the long term.
