Brandon Jennings has been the best player and face of the Milwaukee Bucks over the past few years.
He is a talented point guard that can score at will and has good court vision. He is lightning quick, has good range and is still only 23 years old.
So why on Earth would the Bucks deal this budding star?
The problem with Jennings is that Milwaukee was unable to reach an agreement on a long-term extension, making him a restricted free agent after this season.
Obviously the Bucks would love to re-sign Jennings after the season, but there are reasons to believe that Jennings might be interested in a change of venues.
In an article on realgm.com, a source says that Jennings has "irreconcilable differences" with the Bucks.
He also recently changed agents and has voiced in the past a desire to play in a bigger market.
Typically, it is relatively easy for a team to hold onto its restricted free agents. But we saw last summer when the Houston Rockets swooped in and stole Jeremy Lin from the New York Knicks that anything is possible when it comes to creative contracts.
A team with a lot of cap space could make things very difficult for the Bucks.
Besides, if Jennings really is that unhappy in Milwaukee, do you really want him to be your franchise star?
At this point, the feasible solution is to deal the young guard while they still can.
Here are a few trade scenarios for the Milwaukee Bucks.
