Brandon Jennings found out that he’s not yet worth $12 million per season, and he also got the change of scenery he was seeking.
Jennings will now try to fit in with the long lineage of great point guards in Detroit, and even though he didn’t get the money he was seeking, he is happy.
While playing in a pickup game with friend and Raptors forward Amir Johnson, Jennings told the Toronto Sun that he’s happy with the trade to Detroit.
Jennings declined to say much, saying he wants to “stay under the radar for now,” but did admit “I’m happy” about the trade.
If Jennings wants to ever make the $12 million he covet’s, he’s going to have to go to Detroit, fit in, and make guys better. A Pistons team with Brandon Jennings jacking shots up from the point guard position will not prosper.
