The future of the Milwaukee Bucks, Brandon Jennings has signed his rookie contract today. He will earn $3.75 million over the next two years and the Bucks will have the option his third year. During NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, Jennings averaged 14.6 points and 8.2 assists.
Out of the gates, Jennings looks to be the started for the Milwaukee Bucks as the point guard position. If you watched any of the Summer league games he is a young exciting player to watch. He opens the floor with his quickness and make those quick decisions that lead to easy baskets. The Bucks trotted out Luke Ridnour last year, and what a disappointment that was! Actually, I had ZERO expectations for Ridnour and he did not let me down. Ramon Sessions could resign with the team, as the Bucks can match any contract offer from another team if they choose to do so. Seems like a win-win for both the Bucks and Jennings.
The NBA season is a long way away, but its been a unexpected offseason for many teams. Many thought this may be a slow FA market with the 2010 free agent bonanza. What are your early expectations of the Milwaukee Bucks?
