I think we need Brandon Jennings


I've never been a Brandon Jennings fan. I've kind of thought of him as a punk at times. Multiple times I've said I don't want anything to do with him, especially based on past comments that he's made.

But it has become extremely obvious that we desperately need a player with his skillset on this team. We need a quick, penetrating PG, that can handle the ball well, get other guys involved, get in the lane, and can score when need be. And won't get destroyed on double teams or blown by every time he plays a quick guard. And can take pressure off of Gordon when he actually plays.

Rivers MIGHT develop into that one day, but he's certainly not there yet, and won't be for probably another 2-3 years, if ever.

I know we have Gordon, but Jennings is working next to Monta right now, I think he can work with Gordon.

Yes, he's an RFA with a Qualifying Offer for next year. So we would either need to trade for him during the season or complete a S&T with Mil, as they will likely match most offers.

So it will be hard to get him, and he is, for sure, a polarizing player. I can't even believe I am advocating for him as I have been an opponent...but we need talent on this team, desperately, and he's the type of talent we need.

Would he even be willing to sign with us? I thought he wanted a bigger market.

Jennings has been the top player on my wish list since the Eric Gordon situation earlier this year.

Brandon Jennings is overrated...career high FG% is 41.8...under 40 for his career.

he's a pretty good player and all, but he will continue be a high volume shooter on a mediocre team, imo.

I'm cool with that. We need someone that can fill it up that stays healthy.

Can pilfer slip the Nuggets GM some kinda drug to get 'em to give us Iggy. Can release Aminu back into the wild or something.
