The Bucks have the ability to match, the question has always been do they think he's worth paying the Max. Giving Jennings something like 4/$52 would definitely be overpaying him considering what similar guys like Curry/Holiday/Lawson just resigned for. They were all in the low to mid $40s I believe.
Considering Davis and Anderson will probably outperform their contracts in the next 3 years you can afford to overpay a guy like Jennings. But that also means Demps needs to keep finding productive, cheap role players like Jason Smith, Ayon, Vasquez, etc.

The big market thing seems to have been taken out of context. Basically, he answered questions about playing in a big market.
I share many the feelings and assessments here, but I do find Jennings intriguing. I really find his decision to play in Europe rather than play college interesting. He thinks differently than most, clearly. That can cut both ways, but I find it to be another key to evaluating his fit.
