Bucks to Begin Contract Extension Talks With Brandon Jennings on July 1

by June 18, 2012

Milwaukee Bucks GM John Hammond says that keeping Brandon Jennings is a top priority for the team. Reports the Journal-Sentinel: “Point guard Brandon Jennings will be eligible for an extension to his contract as he enters the fourth and final year of his rookie-scale deal. […] Hammond said the Bucks cannot begin contract discussions with Jennings’ agent, Bill Duffy, until July 1. ‘Once that date comes around, we’ll start discussions,’ Hammond said. ‘Until then, we’re not allowed to, and that’s the reason we haven’t. I think we all understand the importance of Brandon, who he is to our organization and what he has done for us.'”
