Sources: Pistons to acquire Bucks' Jennings
Sources close to the situation told ESPN.com on Tuesday that Brandon Jennings is headed to the Detroit Pistons in a sign-and-trade deal that will net the restricted free agent a new three-year contract worth in excess of $25 million.
Nearly a month after free agency began, Brandon Jennings has a new home.
Sources close to the situation told ESPN.com on Tuesday that the Detroit Pistons have agreed to a sign-and-trade deal that will net Jennings, a restricted free agent, a new three-year contract worth in excess of $25 million.
ESPN.com first reported Tuesday that the Bucks and Pistons were in advanced discussions on a deal to finally rescue Jennings from a frustrating July on the open market in which the restricted free agent appeared to be frozen out of the big money.
Jennings was considering returning to the Bucks on a one-year qualifying offer -- which would have made him an unrestricted free agent -- until the Pistons swooped in with serious trade interest.
The Pistons signed Billups to mentor Knight, but have chosen to replace Knight with Jennings.
