Though he doesn’t yet want to say too much about his move from Milwaukee to Detroit, point guard Brandon Jennings admits that he’s pleased with the change of scenery. Per the Toronto Sun: “The Compton, Cal. native was in (Toronto) at the behest of good friend and fellow L.A. NBAer Amir Johnson, of the Raptors for the OVO Bounce Tournament at Ryerson’s Kerr Hall. Jennings declined to say much, saying he wants to ‘stay under the radar for now,’ but did admit ‘I’m happy’ about the trade. Jennings was a restricted free agent. The OVO Bounce Tournament is an annual event held in conjunction with Drake’s OVO Fest. It pairs OVO with Toronto AAU Powerhouse CIA Bounce, the former summer squad of Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett, Tyler Ennis, Xavier Rathan-Mayes and many more. Jennings and Johnson played on one pickup squad, former Marquette point guard and Canadian camp invitee Junior Cadougan on another and Cory and Devoe Joseph also were in the building. Up-and-comers like Montaque Gill-Caesar, Chris Egi and Thon Maker, a 7-foot-1 centre about to enter just his second year of high school, also competed and more significant players were expected to show up over the course of the week.”
