The Bucks officially signed Brandon Jennings to a multi-year contract on Sunday.
He's had a couple good games, but he's had a few duds as well. He's only getting minutes as the backup PG and the Bucks don't seem interested in playing him to next to Eric Bledsoe, so there's not much fantasy appeal here. Apr 1 - 10:33 AM

Brandon Jennings is signing a deal with the Bucks for the rest of the season, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports.

This was fairly obvious news coming as the Bucks have struggled to add depth at PG. Although they won't need it too much if Eric Bledsoe plays half as well as he did last night. Jennings does have a few good games under his belt, but his value is tied to Bledsoe quite a bit.
Mar 31 - 3:35 PM

Brandon Jennings scored 16 points with five assists, four rebounds, one block, one steal and two triples in 28 minutes vs. the Bulls on Friday.

Eric Bledsoe was in foul trouble which limited him to 20 minutes on the night. The Bucks don't seem interested in playing Jennings next to Bledsoe, and he averaged just 11.5 minutes per game in his previous four outings. Fantasy owners can ignore for him now despite tonight's strong line.
Mar 24 - 12:57 AM

Brandon Jennings has signed a second 10-day contract with the Bucks.

Through four games with Milwaukee, Jennings has compiled averages of 6.0 points, 5.5 assists and 2.8 rebounds in 15.8 minutes per game. Once this second 10-day deal concludes, Milwaukee will either need to sign Jennings for the remainder of the season or let him walk.

The Bucks plan to sign Brandon Jennings to a second 10-day contract, according to ESPN's Marc Spears.

Jennings is averaging 6.0 points and 5.5 rebounds in 15.8 minutes in the four games he's played for the Bucks since signing his first 10-day pact.
Mar 20 - 1:44 PM

Brandon Jennings played nine minutes with two points, one rebound and one assist against the Magic on Wednesday.

Not great after the 16/8/12 line in his season debut on Monday. Jennings only had a three-minute stint in the first half, but he had two fouls and was roasted on defense. His value looks like it's tied to Eric Bledsoe more than anyone else, which hammers home the point that his big Monday game had a lot to do with Bledsoe's foul trouble. Jennings should be better than this and there is an opportunity, but this was obviously a reality check. It's likely a bumpy ride and most owners probably won't want to deal with that.
Mar 14 - 9:33 PM

Brandon Jennings put on a show in his first game back with the Bucks, scoring 16 points with 12 assists and eight rebounds in 24 minutes in a 121-103 win over the Grizzlies on Monday.

Jennings looked like he lost a step in previous stints with the Wizards and Knicks (related to his Achilles injury), but since then he's been dominating overseas and in the G-League. He looked explosive tonight and had the green light for a team that is ranked 28th in 3-pointers per game, hitting 5-of-9 shots, 3-of-6 triples and all three free throws. It's worth noting that Eric Bledsoe (24 minutes) was in foul trouble and the Grizzlies aren't the most formidable team with 18 straight losses, so there are reasons to be skeptical about this line. With that said, he passed the eye test tonight and should at least be on your radar going forward.
Mar 12 - 10:30 PM

Brandon Jennings will be available to play Monday vs. Memphis.

Joe Prunty said he's aiming to get Jennings "some minutes" off the bench, "depending on the flow of the game." He could see some limited run with the second unit tonight, but he won't be on the floor enough to matter in fantasy hoops.
Mar 12 - 6:42 PM

Brandon Jennings is expected to sign a 10-day deal with the Bucks.

He's back. Jennings had some good times with the Bucks, including a 55-point game in 2009. He may get minutes at some point because the Bucks are struggling and they lack a lot of perimeter depth. He still shouldn't be added in fantasy until he does something noteworthy.
Mar 10 - 3:34 PM

Former Bucks PG Brandon Jennings has been signed by the G League's Wisconsin Herd.

Wisconsin had the No. 1 waiver claim so we're not reading into the fact that they're the Bucks' affiliate. Jennings most recently played in China for the Shanxi Brave Dragons, averaging 27.8 points on 47.1% shooting, 6.8 assists and 5.1 rebounds. Even if he is called up from the G League, it would require a perfect situation for him to have fantasy value.
Feb 13 - 3:19 PM

Brandon Jennings reportedly signed a G-League contract on Tuesday.

Jennings played for China Shanxi this season but is now back from overseas. Jennings played the second half of 2016-17 season with the Wizards, but averaged just 3.5 points in 16.3 minutes, while shooting 27.4 percent from the floor. He'll try to land a 10-day contract from an NBA team looking for point guard depth.
Feb 13 - 11:22 AM

Brandon Jennings has accepted a one-year, $1.5 million deal to play for China Shanxi.

He hopes to play in the NBA after the Chinese season ends, so he'll be a popular name in March. Jennings should be able to light it up in China and will probably have some record-breaking performances. His NBA career has been on the downswing after his 15.4 points per game in 2014-15, but he projects as an NBA backup.

Brandon Jennings said that he was "terrible" in the series against Boston.

At least he's honest, as Jennings averaged just 1.0 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.0 assists on 18.8 percent shooting against the Celtics in the second round. The 27-year-old PG has clearly lost a step since his Achilles injury and is a huge defensive liability. He averaged just 3.5 points and 4.7 assists on 27.4 percent shooting after his trade from the Knicks, so he wasn't much better in the regular season. A return to Washington in free agency doesn't seem likely.

Brandon Jennings was ejected in the fourth quarter on Thursday.

He and Terry Rozier picked up the double techs to earn the ejection. Jennings played 15 minutes before he was thrown out, scoring four points with two rebounds and two assists. He is very unlikely to be suspended for today's infractions.

Brandon Jennings gave the Wizards a lift on Wednesday with 10 points, four rebounds and two assists in 17 minutes off the bench.

Jennings got hot at a perfect time in the fourth quarter, with a string of huge offensive plays, helping to erase the Hawks' late lead. It should be mentioned that he was being defended by Jose Calderon during his spurt, and his defense tonight was questionable at best, so skepticism is warranted.
