Adjust Comment Print

Milwaukee Bucks guard Brandon Jennings is available to play off the bench Monday against the Memphis Grizzlies.

The Bucks originally selected him with the No. 10 overall pick in the 2009 National Basketball Association draft, and he spent four seasons with the franchise before it traded him to the Detroit Pistons.

Though Jennings has been out of the spotlight, it is because he has been playing with Wisconsin Herd, the National Basketball Association G League affiliate of the Milwaukee Bucks. The 28-year-old is an eight-year National Basketball Association veteran, playing for Milwaukee, Detroit, Orlando, New York and Washington.

With the Bucks, the rookie has appeared in 20 games, averaging 1.0 point and 0.5 rebounds in 3.4 minutes per game. In four seasons with the team, he averaged 17.0 points and 5.7 assists while shooting at a 35 percent mark from distance.
