Wizards' head coach Scott Brooks is encouraging Brandon Jennings to increase his shot attempts.

"I think this is the first coach to ever tell me to shoot more," said Jennings. "Honestly, when I first came into the league, shooting wasn't really that popular where guys didn't really like point guards to shoot that much. Now it's like 'shoot the ball.' I've gotta get back to that." Brooks may be playing with fire a bit by asking a career 38.9 percent shooter to let it fly with regularity, but Jennings probably appreciates the confidence boost. Still, as long as Bradley Beal and John Wall are healthy, Jennings won't be worth a roster spot in most settings.
Mar 8 - 10:48 AM

Brandon Jennings was ejected from Tuesday's game vs. the Suns.

Jennings confronted Jared Dudley after the Phoenix forward made contact with Jason Smith, but Jennings was simply talking trash and won't have to worry about a suspension. He finished with two points and one assist in five minutes.
Mar 7 - 9:56 PM

Brandon Jennings made his Wizards debut on Friday with no points and two assists in 10 minutes.

No combo-guard minutes for Jennings in this game. He is still not going to be worth owning unless John Wall is on the sidelines.
Mar 3 - 11:45 PM

Brandon Jennings will get playing time next to John Wall.

Wall has the size to guard twos, so this makes sense on that end. Plus, the Wizards do not have much depth behind both Wall and Brad Beal, which means Jennings should be looking at minutes in the low 20s once he gets going. He's still not really a strong play in fantasy while the starters are healthy.
Mar 3 - 5:33 PM

Brandon Jennings will make his Wizards debut Friday night vs. the Raptors.

It is likely only a matter of time before Jennings leapfrogs Tomas Satoransky and Trey Burke as John Wall's primary backup. However, with the dynamic backcourt of Wall and Bradley Beal playing as many minutes as they can handle, there will only limited minutes left over for Jennings off the Wizards bench. Thus, Jennings is not worth a roster spot in most fantasy leagues.
Mar 3 - 12:52 PM

Brandon Jennings will not play Wednesday vs. the Raptors.

He is officially a Wizard now, but he wasn't able to meet up with the team in Toronto for tonight's game, so his Washington debut will be delayed until Friday. Jennings will likely step into a sixth man role with the Wizards, but as long as John Wall and Bradley Beal are healthy, he won't be worth owning in most leagues.
Mar 1 - 6:47 PM

Brandon Jennings is expected to sign with the Wizards once he clears waivers on Wednesday, according to sources of Adrian Wojnarowski.

He's reportedly reached a verbal agreement with the Wizards, so now it's just a matter of him clearing waivers and putting pen to paper. Jennings will have a similar role in Washington to the one he had in New York, meaning he's not going to be worth a roster spot in most leagues.
Feb 28 - 5:30 PM

The Pistons are not interested in signing Brandon Jennings, according to coach Stan Van Gundy.

"With Ish [Smith] here, I don’t think it would be a fit. From Brandon’s standpoint, my guess is he wants to go somewhere he can play," Van Gundy said. Van Gundy was of the belief that Jennings would land in Charlotte, but the Hornets seem content to stick with Briante Weber. The Wizards are now reportedly the favorite to land Jennings.
Feb 28 - 10:35 AM

The Hornets are reportedly pleased with their Briante Weber signing, and they will not pursue Brandon Jennings as a free agent.

Assuming Jennings clears waivers, he'll then be free to join a team of his choosing, and so far the Wizards have expressed interest. Jennings could potentially earn a sixth man-type role in Washington, but it's unlikely he'd generate much fantasy value at all while John Wall and Bradley Beal are healthy.
Feb 27 - 3:56 PM

The Wizards will reportedly make a bid for Brandon Jennings.

An earlier report stemming from Stan Van Gundy implied that Jennings was a lock to go to Charlotte, but esteemed reporter David Aldridge is now adding that Washington has entered the equation. Jennings would just be a backup with either club, so there's not much incentive to take a flier on him in standard leagues.
Feb 27 - 2:58 PM

Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said Brandon Jennings will sign with the Hornets.

SVG coached Jennings in Detroit last season and said he spoke with his agent on Monday morning after the Knicks released him. It's possible that another team could grab Jennings off waivers, but SVG sounded pretty confident that the PG would end up in Charlotte. The Hornets just signed Briante Weber to a 10-day deal, but Jennings would be the clear favorite to back up Kemba Walker in Charlotte.
Feb 27 - 1:27 PM

According to Chris Haynes of ESPN, the Wizards are interested in Brandon Jennings.

The Knicks waived Jennings and his $5 million expiring contract on Monday so that he could join a contender, and it's no secret that the Wizards could bolster their second unit -- the Wizards are 29th in the NBA in bench points per game. It's also worth noting that the Wizards unsuccessfully tried to move Trey Burke at the deadline, so Jennings would be the favorite to back up John Wall if he lands in Washington. The Hornets are also rumored to be interested.
Feb 27 - 1:17 PM

The Knicks will waive PG Brandon Jennings.

It's a sign that the Knicks are ready to rebuild, as Jennings is on an expiring $5 million contract and they are planning to use his roster spot to sign Chasson Randle. Jennings averaged 8.6 points and 4.9 assists with the Knicks, but only shot 38.0 percent from the field. Maybe he lands in an ideal situation for fantasy value, but he's not a great stash at the moment. He will more than likely join up with a playoff team, so we're not optimistic.
Feb 27 - 9:05 AM

Brandon Jennings scored seven points with two rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 14 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday.

The Knicks did sit Jennings in the final game of the first half of the season to rest an Achilles issue. For tonight, he didn't get any combo guard minutes with Derrick Rose, which explains the low playing time. Jennings won't have much value when Rose is in the lineup.
