Jennings (23) who was drafted 10th overall back in 2009 by Milwaukee will join the Pistons with a new three-year, $24-million dollar contract after averaging 17.5 points and 6.5 assists in 80 games for the Bucks last season. Along with forward Josh Smith, Brandon Jennings becomes the second big acquisition by Joe Dumars this summer who mentioned a couple weeks back that a trade for the team was in fact coming.
Meanwhile Brandon Knight has certainly struggled to find a place in his two seasons with Detroit. Last season the off and on point guard averaged 13.3 points and 4 assists in 75 games.
