Bucks still may bring back point guard Jennings

The Milwaukee Bucks are considering holding on to veteran point guard Brandon Jennings, according to a report.

Marc J. Spears of ESPN reported the Bucks decided to not waive Jennings by today’s deadline, which would have guaranteed his $$2,222,803 salary for next season.

However, Spears followed that report up with another, saying the deadline for Jennings’ guarantee has been moved back to Aug. 1.

Jennings returned to the Bucks for the stretch run last season, playing in 14 games in the regular season, averaging 5.5 points, 2.2 rebounds and 3.1 assists, whiling shooting 37.5 percent from the field and 27.3 percent from the 3-point line.

The 28-year-old, a former 10th overall pick in the draft, is regarded as a dependable scorer and playmaker and is expected to be a big part of Milwaukee’s bench.

The contract of Malcolm Brogdon ($1,544,951) will also become guaranteed today, with the Bucks expected to keep the former Rookie of the Year in the fold.
