Jennings, no stranger to international hoops, tells HoopsHype that he’d be willing to go back there should the NBA shut down operations next season: “Are you saving your money for a potential lockout next season? BJ: ‘Oh, yeah. Of course. I think if a lockout comes, we can go overseas and play, right? I’ve heard guys say that.’ You would actually play overseas next season? BJ: ‘You got to do something. I love to play the game of basketball, so I don’t want to just sit around. If there’s a lockout, I’d probably go overseas again and play.’ And what country would you prefer to play in? BJ: ‘Italy.’ You obviously enjoyed the one season you played with Lottomatica Roma before joining the Bucks. BJ: ‘I did, and I know the city. I can get back there and go where I usually go. Maybe teams over there will have different expectations of me now. Hopefully, the work I put in over here will get me some minutes overseas.'”
