Brandon Jennings Doesn’t Want To Leave Milwaukee Without ‘Accomplishing Something’

by April 27, 2013

The pervading sentiment is that Game 4 will be Brandon Jennings’ final game in Milwaukee, but Jennings told Scoop Jackson that his days as a Buck may not be over. The soon-to-be restricted free agent said he doesn’t want to leave business unfinished in Milwaukee. From ESPN: “‘I said some things, you know, that I probably shouldn’t have to make [the fans] think that [these might be my last days],’ Jennings said to me after the Game 3 loss. ‘But in general I wouldn’t want to leave without actually accomplishing something here and that’s getting out of the first round or something like that.’ […] As long as sign-and-trades are an option in the collective bargaining agreement of the NBA, anything is possible. So maybe this farewell feeling hanging over Milwaukee is an indication that instead of matching the best offer another team makes and keeping Jennings around for a lame-duck season, the Bucks will sign him and trade him. ‘At the end of the day they have supported me here since day one,’ Jennings said about the Bucks and Milwaukee. ‘The good and the bad. From my rookie year, from being a little guy that came from Italy that nobody knew about, they still had my back through it all. So at the end of the day, I still love this town and hopefully I’ll be here.'”
