Utah Jazz could give him a

Utah Jazz could give him a modest 5 mil a year offer. Trey Burke isn't ready to start.

Utah or Atlanta?

He isn't going to get the money he wants anywhere. I could see Utah since Burke clearly isn't ready, the Hawks since Teague is gone? it seems like no contender wants him or can't afford him and every team rebuilding doesn't want him in their future.

The Hawks just matched

The Hawks just matched Teague's offer sheet so he is staying in Atlanta.

Question on Jennings..

Is he a restricted FA or unrestricted?

Thanks

Wow and no one has offered him anything? This should be an eye opener for him. He has to work on his game. His shot selection is terrible.

He'd be a great PG if he did less. Trouble is he doesn't understand that.

I don't think he is anything

I don't think he is anything special at all. He is a sub 40% shooter for his career and isn't the best playmaker. He was also forced to take some bad shots in Milwaukee because they aren't the best offensive team especially in the frontcourt.

I think his 55 point game 7 games into his rookie season boosted his reputation and expectations. I don't think he is a top 20 PG in the NBA and he thinks he is a top 10 PG....so that could be a problem. He will most likely sign the qualifying offer and play one more year for the Bucks. He will really have to improve his all around game if he hopes to get a decent contract next summer.

He's not going anywhere

Nobody wants or needs him enough to outbid Milwaukee.

Who has space left to sign

Who has space left to sign him anyway? The Bucks moved Mbah Moute so they have enough room under the cap to resign him and pay no penalties. If I was Charlotte or any team with space I would give him a one year 9 million dollar deal so he wouldn't have to play for the QO. This would hand cuff the Bucks during the season as far as making moves easier and he may tell them not to match and you could trade him half way thru the season if somebodies guard goes down.

ughhh you're probably right,

ughhh you're probably right, after hearing Teague's out I was looking forward to a PG duo of Ridnour and Wolters.. guess its gonna be another 30-35 win year for the Bucks. But who knows maybe he takes his game to the next level after realizing this offseason nobody wants a high volume, low percentage chucker as their point guard.

Reminds me of Kenny

Reminds me of Kenny Anderson/Rod Strickland. Both were ball dominant point guards with huge egos and flashy games who were incredibly inefficient and sloppy. The league figured out they weren't worth the trouble. Both guys squandered an immense amount of talent trying to prove they were better than they were. Neither ever played meaningful minutes for a contending team, and both have been mostly forgotten.

Jennings is a pass 1st

Who got stuck leading a team. He would prefer to not be depended on to score. He will fair better with more weapons so he can just pass. He should be top 5 in assist all the time. He needs more weapons. He also needs to lose the scoring mentality that developed there. He needs to be a passer creator more. I believe that's his game but he had to do too much in Milwaukee.

Jennings is a chucker to the

Jennings is a chucker to the bone. He developed that chucker mentality in HS. He is not a pass first PG, never was. The only time he looks to dish the rock with any sort of consistency is when he's trying to make a point. Like trying to break the assist record at HS all star games or trying to "prove' that he can be a high assist guy, but he always eventually reverts back to his chucking ways though because that is who he is. He's irrationally confident given his shooting %s, has a very low bball IQ and is borderline delusional. If you watched him at Oak Hill it was obvious he was gonna become what he has. His shot selection was ridiculously stupid.

I think he'll play for the QO. Nobody wants him. I don't even think the Bucks want him, but they'll settle for him short term and didn't want to lose him for nothing. Now they have no one to bid against, so they can either low ball him or just keep him for a year with the QO. I think next yr he loses his starting PG status and starts his new role as a bench gunner.

I wish he could revert back to his Oak Hill days. True definition of a PG back then.

You've got to be kidding. He was a huge chucker at Oak Hill.

If anything he looked to shoot more back then. Kid had carte blanche and took full advantage of it, breaking numerous scoring records.

If I recall right the game

If I recall right the game against Simeon (D.Rose) he had 10+ assist and was not a factor when it came to scoring. I will look at the tape again when I get some free time.

One game? I saw that game and he couldn't buy a shot early, found his team down, tried to chuck his team back into the game and failed.
Think about all the players who have gone to Oak Hill: Carmelo, Stackhouse, Beasley, KD, Ron Mercer, Rod Strickland, etc. Well Jennings is the most prolific scorer in the history of that school.
He was a scorer first and foremost.

Tyreke Evans was allowed to

Tyreke Evans was allowed to move on when he got a $44 million offer over 4 years, Monta Ellis looks as if he will get less than he opted out for, Jeff Teague got $8 million a year and the Bucks gave OJ Mayo $8 million a year. I'd assume that Jennings would be in this ballpark but there has been no real interest for him so it looks like he'll remain with the Bucks.

I'd give him $36 million over 4 years, last year a team option that gives him some long term security but the Bucks don't have a long term deal to shoulder and would make him tradeable if needed.

I don't think that Jennings will ever be a pass first PG but even for a scoring PG he should average more APG, last season he did reach a career best 6.5 APG so that was a move in the right direction but he does need to play percentage basketball moves and look for the best shot option be it a team mate or himself.
