Yup, I'm leaning more and more everyday towards shipping him out too. The "youth" aspect is the only thing keeping me on the fence but it's been 4 seasons with minimal improvement.
I'd love to see him next to a legit SG before I make the move but that probably won't happen.
At this point, i want no part of giving Brandon any sort of four year deal in that 40 million range after the season, whether it's the Bucks making the offer or matching one in that range.
I agree with you that Jennings just hasn't shown enough significant improvement at pretty much any aspect of his game since his rookie year.
He's still only a 40% shooter that shoots to much given his inability to make shots at a better clip.
He still doesn't get to the free throw line.
His court vision is a little improved, but not to a point that makes him upper tier in that aspect to help compensate for his bad shooting.
On the defensive end he at least tries and all of the steals are good, but like so many other point guards, he struggles to limit penetration, especially against stronger guards given his slight frame.
I generally like Brandon on a personality level, at least from what i can see from afar as a fan. He seems to care about winning, almost always plays hard, and he talks about the city of Milwaukee in a positive way when interviewed both locally and nationally. He also stays healthy for the most part. As a player though, he just hasn't been able to improve enough at his shooting deficiencies and average court vision for me to want Jennings locked into the Bucks PG job over the next 4-5 years, much less at around 10 million per.
