The contract extension deadline for the class of 2009 passed last Wednesday night, Brandon Jennings un-extended. The Bucks southpaw has shown flashes, but poor shot selection and immaturity ultimately has led the Milwaukee organization to allow him to hit restricted free agency next year. On Saturday night, however, Jennings showed what he could do, hitting a game winning triple has the buzzer sounded.
I'm not the biggest Jennings fan, but his play thus far has been pleasantly surprising. He was named eastern conference player of the week, nothing to be scoffed at, and hit this to put the Bucks at an improbable 2-0. When summer rolls around, it will be interesting to see what types of offer sheets Jennings gets and whether or not the Bucks match. If plays like this keep coming, who knows how much teams will be willing to pay.
